Meet Carolina Takahashi, owner and lead artist at Mode Artistry in East Mesa. Carolina and her team are available to help you look and feel your best during your senior photo shoot!
“I started my makeup career after graduating from Makeup Designory (MUD) Burbank, CA in 2008. I’ve always had a huge love for clean beauty looks! For years, I worked as a freelance makeup artist on a variety of photo shoots, some TV and film, and special events, including weddings. After moving to the Phoenix area in 2016, my bridal makeup business really started to gain traction. It was a very exciting time in my career! Fast forward to 2020 — I’ve enlisted a team of hand-picked artists to provide makeup services for weddings, photography, and all other special events. MODE Artistry was born. These ladies have helped and assisted me on weddings and photo shoots over the last few years and I am so happy to bring them along with me on this incredible journey! I hope you’ll stick around to see what we’ll do next!”
Tips for Amazing Brows
We are in the era of the fluffy brow! Every girl wants a good set of full brows. The “Soap Brow” technique is among the best ways to add volume to brows. I take clear soap (like Pears Transparent Glycerin Bar Sap), sprits a bit of MAC Fix+ on the soap, and then use a disposable mascara spoolie to apply a thin layer of soap to the brows. This makes the brows appear thicker, and it also has incredible hold and staying power. You can also try WBCo. Soap Brows. From there, I fill in the gaps as needed with either Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer or Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade.
If you’re a ‘less is more’ kind of girl and like to keep things extra simple — I recommend trying a brow gel instead! Check out Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel or Glossier Boy Brow.
