Wedding Hair & Airbrush Makeup at Craguns Resort

WE love what we do…which is On Site Wedding Hair & Airbrush Makeup for our beautiful brides and their wedding party. We love our brides and we love when they leave us a sweet, kind review..The beautiful scenery at Craguns Resort on Gull Lake is breathtaking…We are totally in love with these wedding photos of our bride by Whitney b Photography

“The Captivating-Beauty team was a blast to work with…so happy I stumbled across them for bridal hair/make-up!! Tracy (the owner) is simply amazing… so sweet, accommodating, and not to mention an amazing make-up artist. Melissa was my hair stylist and she was amazing as well. The whole team is fabulous – used them for my whole bridal party’s hair and make-up (which wasn’t small)…they came out to our little cabin bright and early and did their magic. Stuck to the timeline and were a blast to have. I hope to cross paths with Tracy again sometime in the future!”

Yes, bright and early at 6am…we arrived at Craguns to begin our 20 services. We had to be done by 10:30 and we made it…..Leah was so happy….and the outcome…all I can say is our bride was breathtakingly beautiful…so kind and calm…you couldn’t ask for a nicer bride


Airbrush Makeup for Brides in Brainerd

Airbrush Makeup is the number one choice for brides. We’ve had a number of brides whose first experience with airbrush makeup was in our chair:) They were amazed at how light it felt. I think they were expecting it to feel really heavy instead they were pleasantly surprised. Airbrush makeup is also buildable. If the bride desires a little more coverage without looking cakey this can be done with airbrush makeup. That’s the sweet thing about airbrush makeup, it can give sheer to full coverage. It’s up to the bride and of course we will give our humble opinion:) We would be doing a disservice if we didn’t:)

After years of providing makeup for brides and seeing their photos, we know what photographs well and what doesn’t…Ultimately it is up to the bride, but as I said..we’ve learned a lot throughout the years and have seen numerous photos that prove that is correct. We spoke with a local wedding photographer and this is what she had to say..”there is a marked difference between airbrush and traditional makeup and how it transposes in wedding photos.” From her stand point…airbrush makeup is the only way to go for brides…and if she could make the choice for all her brides…airbrush makeup would be it:)


On Site Wedding Hair and Makeup in St. Cloud

We were so happy that Megan our beautiful bride contacted us to provide wedding hair and makeup services last summer for her and her wedding party. Their wedding venue – Rolling Hills Event & Wedding Center in St. Cloud MN – was amazing. Their bridal Suite had such wonderful natural lighting and the grounds were simply gorgeous.

3 of us traveled On Site to perform 15 wedding hair styles and 7 wedding parties makeup….they desired a natural makeup look….but just a little more enhanced and I’d say our team delivered…they were so happy and looked stunning….

We also loved the mother of the bride and she left us such a sweet review!!

“I would recommend this service to all bridal parties! It was so nice to have Tracy and her team come to our venue. As the mom of the bride I was able to sit back and relax and enjoy watching everyone get ready. The team did a fantastic job with hair and make up. They worked quickly yet were able to do the most amazing hair and make up. I was totally unsure what I was going to do with my hair and Missy worked on it for maybe 5-10 minutes and I LOVED IT! Tons of compliments for the whole bridal party. The Bide was of course stunning! They were able to do 15 hair styles and 7 make ups all in the alloted time. Took away all the stress and made it fun. This is one of the best decisions we made when planning the wedding.”


Wedding Makeup in Brainerd MN

I thought we should talk a little bit about wedding makeup for brides in central Minnesota. We have been been providing bridal makeup for 5 years in Brainerd, Crosslake, Nisswa, St. Cloud, Duluth and the surrounding areas including the Mpls/St. Paul regions. That is over 600 faces and 130 weddings. Plus we have trainings every year to keep updated on new bridal trends etc..

Why change something that has proven itself over and over again for over 5 years and that includes our bridal foundation.  This is professional foundation that works and it works wonderful for our MN weather. We have utmost confidence in our products because they have stood the test of time and stood up to MN inclement weather..and as you know it can change at any time and will keep you on your toes..that’s the beauty of MN weddings…

Prepping the skin for bridal makeup is everything. We also have used the same primers because they work. It is just as important as the makeup itself if not more important. We use primers based on skin type and condition. One size does not fit all where prepping skin is concerned. The same with toners. We use skin toners that fit the skin type & condition.

If you want your wedding makeup to stay on all day…rest assured..our’s’s been proven…
