Blush: Asheville Makeup Artists



 

Wendy Ballance, Owner & Makeup Artist 

"I love a Flawless Makeup Application!" 

I live and breathe BLUSH ASHEVILLE, and am so proud of what this group of talented artists has accomplished! 

   I want our clients to know they will receive the best service & skill when hiring Blush for your wedding, event or project. My goal is not to see how many brides we can squeeze in on any given day or to get our name printed in magazines...my goal is to serve you with the respect, maturity and kindness that you deserve. 

Blush Asheville works with over 150 brides a year along with commercial, print & film projects! 

Are we still growing? Of course we are! See the latest updates on our facebook page.

 What got you into makeup?

I have loved make up ever since I was a little girl, and I started giving my friends and family makeovers when I was eight years old.

 Why do you love to work with brides? 

My favorite thing about working with brides is that I know looking your best is feeling your best.  There are equal parts of stress and excitement, while planning a wedding.  I love being able to give the bride a little peace of mind 

 What is your background in the beauty industry? 

I officially started my career in the beauty industry in 2006, managing the "Benefit Cosmetics" counter.  Benefit invited me to be among the "featured MUAs", on various events. In 2008,  I started with BLUSH, assisting Wendy Ballance on multiple weddings, then graduating to my own.

You can visit Kristen at the Clarins Counter at Dillards, Asheville Mall! We love their products!

What got you into makeup?
 
I've always loved makeup and the affect it has on a woman's self-confidence.  For me, it's more than a beauty regimen.  It's a way to be creative and try new things!  I was an art major in college and painting has been a love for me, but makeup has become my passion!
 
Why do you love to work with brides?
 
As a woman, I know that the one day in your life that you want to feel and look the most beautiful is your wedding day.  You dream of it from the time you were a little girl.  So to be a part of making a bride look her most beautiful is such an honor and privilege!  
 
Why did you say YES to Blush?
 
Before I ever met Wendy Ballance, I saw Blush's work through pictures posted by a friend who is a photographer. Their work speaks for itself.  Blush has an incredible team of artists and is known for a high standard in the work that they do.  To be a part of the Blush team is a dream come true for me!  
 
 
 

 

Jen O'Leary

Ever since I could remember I have been drawn to color. I have always had a passion for makeup and started working professionally in the beauty industry with Estée Lauder. A couple years later I joined Bobbi Brown because I wanted to refine my artistry technique and skill. After being with Bobbi for a few years, I left and currently work for Christian Dior cosmetics. 
 
 I love working on weddings because I love that every face is a new canvas. To be apart of a woman's most special moment in life and create that beautiful finishing touch, is an honor and a joy. Also, let's be honest, I'm a romantic at heart and love to hear everyone's love story :)
