With their own personal makeup styles and tastes, we try to match each artists’ skills to our clients’ wants and needs. Kelly and her team are renowned for their hard work and talent in ensuring that each client leaves the studio feeling absolutely gorgeous and, most importantly, like themselves. This is why many of our clients continue to entrust life’s special occasions to our team of artists.


Each of our artists uses the highest quality of professional products and tools, with a clear understanding of the best application for each skin type and skin tone. With backgrounds in film, television, and photography, each of our artists has undergone vigorous training in makeup principles, application, and technique; as well as hair styling artistry.
