Hi There!

My name is Anna,

I am a wife, a momma to my sweet 2 year old Isaac and a fur mama to our sweet dogs Bodey & Sadie.

When I am not in my makeup studio, you can find me on the couch with a glass of wine snuggling up with my very supportive husband, Eric and our pups watching a movie, out on our boat or finding a new restaurant/brewery to try!


From Cars to Makeup


I had no idea what I was going to do with my life after High School, so I jumped into the workforce and landed a job as an admin assistant at an Audi Dealership in St. Paul. This is where I also met my now husband Eric who has been my biggest supporter through it all. I've always loved makeup and five years ago when it came to finding a new career for myself it was a no brainer to start offering makeup applications. I always spent way too much money at Sephora and had started quite the makeup collection so I started offering wedding makeup services and before I knew it, I had 35 weddings booked my first year! I then officially started Anna Joy Makeup and have been doing this for 5 years and now have a team of 2 makeup artists and 1 hairstylist with more room to grow!


My love for makeup also blossomed into a love for skincare and figuring out how to help the skin underneath the makeup. I studied skincare at Model College of Hair Design in 2018 and received my Advanced Practice Esthetician License. I love being able to give my brides some personalized skincare advice to give their skin that wedding day *glow*.

I absolutely LOVE weddings, I think they are the most special day for a couple and as a former bride myself, I know how stressful and chaotic the morning of your big day can be. I will be the calm to your storm, I want to pamper and glam you up while you relax with a mimosa in your hand.

I want to help you feel beautiful in your own skin, with the features you were blessed with.

I can't wait to hear more about YOU and your special day.

Associate Artists 

Lydia // Makeup Artist


Lydia is fairly new to the wedding industry, but has been a makeup lover since she was first allowed to wear it in 9th grade. Growing up being involved with musical theater, she learned about the importance of making makeup last long, and being bold enough show under harsh stage lights. Once Lydia learned more about photography and how makeup looks in photographs, she saw an opportunity to use her skills from musical theater to transfer into the wedding industry. 


Lydia has loved weddings ever since Say Yes to the Dress started airing on TLC! Making brides and bridal parties feel beautiful is one of the most rewarding experiences for her. With hours of endless YouTube tutorials and practicing, this self taught makeup artist is excited to work with you! 


Lydia spends her free time lifting weights, figure skating, singing in church choir, and spending time with her husband, dog, family and friends.
