Get Ready With Aly: Special Event Makeup Atlanta

special event makeup Atlanta

If you’ve been keeping up with Aly’s Instagram lately, she chronicled the Authentic Beauty services she received in preparation for a photo shoot that will appear in Best Self Atlanta Magazine to promote the Fashion Meets Passion event, an amazing night of giveback and glam. (Read more about this fun evening of giveback and glam here.)

Aly documented her process to give her clients a view of the entire spectrum of Atlanta beauty services we offer. With our award-winning, special event makeup services in Atlanta, you can look your absolute best and feel incredible before your next special event. Plus, getting ready for an event has never been easier, more rewarding or fun. 

To look her absolute best, Aly got the following beauty services:

Authentic Glow Facial with Bri

Organic Spray Tan with Bri

Brow Lamination, Brow Dye and Brow Arch with Bri 

Red Carpet Ready Makeup Application with Rosie 

Strip Lashes by Bri (*a makeup add-on service. We also offer lash extensions, lash lifts and lash tints)

Atlanta facial services

Step 1: Atlanta Facial Services at Authentic Beauty 

With her outfit planned for the photoshoot (she wore her classic, gold wedding dress that she wore 17  years ago when she married Charlton), Aly began her special event beauty journey with an incredible Authentic Glow Facial with Bri. 

The Authentic Glow Facial is Aly’s favorite facial in Atlanta to hydrate her skin, sluff off dead skin cells, and infuse her face with much-needed moisture. This is a 90-minute facial that is hydrating, brightening, firming and smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles. It is also a great year-round facial, and the perfect treatment before a wedding, photoshoot, or any special event where you want your skin to look flawless. 

To any of our facials, you can also have add-on services like the Nano Pen with Hyaluronic Acid Serum. To book your Authentic Glow Facial online, click here or call the salon at 404.849.0443. 

Atlanta Spray Tan

 Step 2: Atlanta Spray Tan with Bri 

There is a better and safer way to be bronzed and beautiful with Authentic Beauty’s organic air brush spray tan service.  Our organic spray solution delivers an even tan all over your body and it contains moisturizing and anti-aging ingredients that are good for your skin. And no matter how pale or dark you are, Authentic Beauty has you covered-literally! Our organic spray tans are a fantastic fit for all skin types and tones. We carry everything from the lightest solution for a delicate glow to a deep dark rich tan. Also, our solutions are organic and are boosted with vitamins and minerals that specifically work to make your skin appear more youthful!

Spray tan bonus. For an even longer-lasted tan, consider our post tan shower cleanser.  Learn more about our Atlanta spray tanning service here

best brows Atlanta

Step 3: Best Brows Atlanta 

Voted Best Brows Atlanta 2023, our brow services are award-winning thanks to the expertise of Aly and her entire staff that is fully trained on Aly’s tweeze only brow methods. For brow services, Aly has Brianna Beverly, Authentic Beauty’s senior brow and beauty expert, do her brows and for the photoshoot?  Aly’s brow arch, brow lamination and her brow tint/dye were beautifully done by Bri. 

A brow lamination is a semi-permanent treatment (akin to a perm for the eyebrows) that helps to define and shape the brows, and involves coating the brows in a solution that relaxes the hair, making them easier to style. It also fluffs up the brows. For a bolder, more enhanced look, a brow tint (aka brow dye) was added to this service. 

Finally, Aly never misses getting her brows done every 4 to 6 weeks to keep the brow hair growth on a cycle because we all know by now that if you don’t? Your brows stop growing or as Aly says, “you have to mow it to grow it.”  Book a brow arch appointment with one of our talented Atlanta brow artists here.  Or call the studio at 404-849-0443

Get your brows blooming again with our Roller Brow, a brow derma roller with brow enhancing serum.

Step 4: Best Makeup Artist Atlanta

Rosie Gillespie is one of Atlanta’s best makeup artists, and she specializes in special event makeup (as well as makeup lessons, special effects makeup, prom makeup and more.) So, Aly opted for the Red Carpet/ Special Event Makeup Application with Rosie. 

This makeup application service we offer is ideal when your makeup must be gorgeous, long lasting, and flawless. Your makeup look is customized and designed specifically for you! Extra time is given for extra coverage, contouring and color choices that will look amazing on the red carpet and on camera. Book an Atlanta makeup appointment here

Step 5: Lashes Atlanta 

As an add-on service after Aly’s makeup application, she topped off her look with strip lashes from Bri.  They are natural looking, perfect for a special event, and they added gorgeous dimension and volume to her overall look.  For longer lasting lashes, Authentic Beauty also does lash extensions in Atlanta. Or you can opt for a lash lift or tint. Book a lash appointment here
