Hi there ! I'm Ashley Boren. I am so happy you are here and I would love to tell you a little more about me, how I fell in love with bridal beauty, and how I can best serve you on the biggest day of your life.

The way I was introduced to the world of beauty is actually a funny story. It was 2015 I was just like you, searching around the St. Louis area for my wedding day hair and makeup. At the time, I was working at a local hospital in the NICU pursuing my dream of becoming a nurse. I was scrolling through instagram, reading all the wedding magazines and found an amazing makeup artist for my day. While I read more about her, I discovered she offered a class to teach bridal beauty basics in a 12 week course. I signed up for the course, not having any idea what it would lead me to.
In 2016, I started & completed my bridal makeup course! I was so excited. I began working with 2 different bridal teams since then and have enjoyed every minute of it. I realized that nursing wasn't my passion. I knew I wanted a job where I could perform helpful services, and bridal beauty is where my heart and passion is. After 7 years of working in healthcare, I quit my full time job to pursue my dream. And here we are today, living and breathing this life every single day. I LOVE WHAT I DO!
Now, lets talk about YOU. Why choose me?
I am a lover of natural & soft glam looks that truly bring out your natural beauty. Plain & simple. I won't promise to make you look like a snapchat filter cuz girl, thats not YOU. Thats not real. Real beauty is enhancing what you have and shaking what yo momma gave you. Skin is meant to look like SKIN, not plastic. My goal is to make you look and feel like the best version of yourself on the BEST day of your life. 
During your entire wedding planning process, we are here for you! Whether its our first trial together, engagement photos with your boo, bridal showers with your girls (and guys!), a night out for your bachelorette party, your WEDDING DAY and all the milestones to follow. We want to be a part of your happily ever after. Your pregnancy announcements. New job promotions. Adopting your first (or second or third if you're anything like me!) pet as a couple. Your weekend outings with friends. We wanna see it all.
 
 We are here. We are along for the ride of a lifetime, not just for one day.

xoxo,
