Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I focus on beauty makeup that enhances rather than masks a person's features. While I do feel that cake face is beautiful, my own tastes lean more towards classic and elegant so that is what I tend to want to provide my clientele. I love that makeup allows you to express your creativity. Whether you feel you have no talent at all, creativity is purely subjective. I love doing things with my hands; sewing, gardening, drawing...believe it or not, makeup fits well in this category. I have a very fun-loving personality and I’m told that I have the natural ability to make people feel comfortable. My goal is always to bring out a persons’ best features so when they leave me they’re feeling comfortable And confident and that brings out everyone’s most beautiful self = mission accomplished! I reside in Northwest Indiana and have been diagnosed with Mixed Connective Tissue Disease. This is why I’m so passionate about advocating for those with physical disabilities. I genuinely love meeting new people and look forward to working with you! Professional Makeup Artist Sondra D. Boyd DBA KittySpeaks, LLC completed her certified Professional Makeup Artist training in 2013 and finally realized a dream that had first fascinated her young mind in adolescence. Her mother only reinforced that fascination by forbidding her young daughter to wear makeup when it seemed to her like the entire world (kids can be so dramatic) was wearing makeup except her! The artists’ first personal experience with cosmetics was with Fashion Fair Cosmetics at Carson Pirie Scott when she left home and went to college and she’s been hooked ever since. She started out selling Avon, thinking she could learn about makeup but through that experience was approached by someone with a different opportunity. They told her about Mary Kay Cosmetics. The bar was higher, and education was a high priority for “the Company”.  Training its Consultants was an integral component of Mary Kay’s business plan and was key to the success of everyone’s business. I set out to learn everything I could about makeup by becoming a Sales Consultant with Mary Kay. For over 15 years (intermittently) I learned more than how to apply makeup; I learned how identify skin issues and treat those issues, how to communicate effectively, how to work within others’ boundaries, how to make people feel comfortable, how to cooperate & most importantly to admit to my limitations. It benefits no one to have you saying you have skills that you don’t possess on the day of someone’s wedding!! After consistently climbing the ladder of success in that arena, and finally finding that my health derailed the train, I took an extended break to rest and recuperate.  I was diagnosed permanently disabled and had to make necessary changes to my lifestyle. However, in 2012 resting and recuperating became too much and I needed to DO something. Attending school formally would be the fulfillment of my lifelong love affair with makeup. I enrolled in a Professional Makeup Artist Course online and found the extensive coursework to be just what the doctor ordered. Makeup artistry is more than aesthetics, if you are serious about becoming a makeup artist then you must focus on the basics – skin care. Having devoted nearly 20 years to selling skin care and cosmetics, I was uniquely suited to the coursework and found it fascinating and insightful. Combining my love of learning and love of cosmetics, I got challenge myself to put the coursework to practical use upon graduation in August of 2013.  The next phase of the journey – content creation, had already begun and I didn’t even know it at the time. My children had urged me to join YouTube in March 2013 and the second video posted, a hair care video, has nearly 201,000 views to date! Able to do what I’d would gladly do for a free for a living? Finally I’d found what I had been seeking. Now when I’m asked if I find makeup fun I answer with total honesty – absolutely!

I had an amazing time getting my makeup done. The artist didn’t mind stopping anytime I need to make a call & even provided me a charger close to my makeup chair so that I could gain juice & still communicate. She shade matched me perfectly & the facial I got before hand was so relaxing!

Sondra Jones is a great makeup artist. She listens to the desires of her clients and gives them exactly what they want. She uses a variety of products catering to the different needs of the clients based upon their skin type. Sondra made me feel extremely comfortable ( I even let her get close to my eyes.) She gives you information each and every products she uses and explains its purpose. I would definitely recommend Sondra. I guarantee you will leave satisfied.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    During all of my time learning my craft I learned more than how to apply makeup; I learned how identify skin issues and treat those issues, how to communicate effectively, how to work within others’ boundaries, how to make people feel comfortable, how to cooperate & most importantly to admit to my limitations. It benefits no one to have you saying you have skills that you don’t possess. My typical process for working with a new customer involves getting to know them more than anything else. I need to know their skin type, what colors they like to wear, what their undertone is, what is their style (this will affect the makeup choice), what are they allergic to, what is their budget, do they have skin care Preferences, i.e., K-Beauty, are they a lipgloss or matte liquid lipstick person? The more I know about them, the better chance I have of them being thrilled with their finished look instead of unhappy and uncomfortable saying so!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I graduated from the University of Makeup in July of 2013 but I also have training and education in makeup application and skincare going all the way back to 1992. One of the most important facets of maintaining my business is continuing education so I regularly attend seminars and trainings to enhance my skills and stay on top of current trends. Oh yes, I work hard every day to stay ahead of the curve. I actually participate in classes, lectures and of course, believe it or not, the internet allows learning without boundaries or time constraints which is fantastic! It is an endless source of inspiration and a great way to find new learning opportunities and trainings that fit within your vision and business ideal (special effects makeup for example).
