la oc wedding makeup artist

Hi!

Thank you for stopping by.   My name is Hikari (Hee-car-ee).   I am a dancer turned makeup artist & hairstylist.  I've loved the art of creating beauty ever since I was in high school.  Since I started my professional pursuit in the hair & makeup industry, I've had the opportunity to work with many talented photographers and models on published projects. 

I've enjoyed doing creative shoots, editorials, lookbooks, and campaigns to name a few.  But brides and weddings have always had my heart.  I'm inspired and drawn to beautiful & pretty makeup.  After working in the wedding industry for the last few years and beautifying brides, I became a bride myself last year.  I have a deeper appreciation and love for weddings even more and gratitude to those who helped me on my day.  

I love being a part of a bride's big day.  I'm honored to be enhancing her natural beauty and would love to be a part of yours!

At the end of the day, the Bride just wants two things.  To feel pretty and cared for.  Hikari's mission is to make sure these two things happen. She will make sure you feel like a rockstar!...in a gorgeous kind of way, of course!  Hikari styles and designs customized to each bride that are pretty, natural,  and elegant.  You can see her work featured in numerous blogs and magazine including Style Me Pretty, Magnolia Rouge, Wedding Sparrow, & Southern California Bride.

Hailing from the bay area, she now lives in Orange County, CA servicing brides in the surrounding areas including Los Angeles and the Inland Empire.  Available for destination weddings upon request!
