Do You Clean Your Products?
BBWellington sanitizes all brushes between each client while at a job, and uses alcohol to kill bacteria on eyeliner/lip pencils. Disposable wands are used for mascara and lip products. We also wash our hands in between each client, and you'll find a bottle of antibacterial soap at each of our stations. After every job/wedding, we deep clean our brushes, ready for the next one!
What Kind of Makeup Do Your Artists Use?
BBWellington uses the best of the best. Our artists use a variety of professional brands such as Morphe, Too Faced, Dior, Marc Jacobs, Colour Pop, Make Up For Ever, MAC, Ben Nye, RCMA and many others. We focus on providing products that guarantee the longevity of your makeup and foundations that are suitable for all skin types.
Why Should I Do A Trial Run?
Our stylists at BBWellington highly recommend for our clients to have their hair and makeup done before their big day. This helps our clients to know their stylists and understand that they are in good hands for their wedding day. During this time, we want to see pictures of your dress, inspirational pictures and ask lifestyle questions so our stylists can personalize the look that will best suit you. This time gives our brides the opportunity to customize their look and get it just right before the big day! We want to ensure that you look and feel your absolute best to conquer this special day.

Lisa Co-Owner/Makeup Artist
Hi! I'm a sarcastic nerd with an obsessive love for makeup, Lord of the Rings, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and SpongeBob SquarePants. I live in North Fort Worth, where I have a home studio, & I've been a working makeup artist in the DFW area for nine years. I love doing weddings, and working with photographers for family portraits, boudoir and senior photos. My biggest love of all though is my rescued chi mix, Benson. He's my soul mate. So if you have a dog, more than likely, we're going to get along real well!
Julia Co-Owner/Makeup Artist & Hair Stylist
I have loved makeup since 8th grade, when I would use my Urban Decay eyeshadows to do my friend's makeup in choir! I attended Toni&Guy in 2014 and I obtained a TX cosmetology license. I have also attended classes like the Makeup by Mario Master Class. I worked for Sephora, as well as Chanel for two years, where I really learned to master my craft. Weddings are my passion because I work with the most amazing people and I have the opportunity to do what I love! "If you do a job you love, you'll never work a day in your life."
Tara - Hair Stylist
I have always known that I wanted to do hair, even after trying a few other career paths. I graduated from Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy and received my cosmetology licenses. My mother was a cosmetology instructor growing up and my parents owned a salon as well, so I have been immersed in the culture from the very beginning.
I am married to my amazing husband, Chad and we have a crazy husky furbaby.
I enjoy working with wedding parties and getting to know each and every person, as well as their story.
