Introduction: First of all, I am a licensed esthetician, which is required to do makeup applications in SC. My goal is to have the most beautiful makeup with the most sanitary and clean work, especially during COVID. I specialize in airbrush makeup, and use the best products and brands on the market. My prices always include lashes as well! I'm their for you, and to make your day special! Any events outside of Charleston, will have a travel charge added. For facials I specialize in sensitive, acne prone, and mature skin. All facials are customized for each person to get the best results! I get to make people feel confident, beautiful, and their personal best. That is the most rewarding part of my job and what makes my work special!

Wedding and Event Makeup

Merit was able to come early at the last minute when my plans changed. She was so kind and really good about explaining what products she was using and why. I looked amazing for the event and got so many compliments. Strangers were stopping me to ask about my makeup - it was that good. I will absolutely use Merit in the future for my event makeup and have recommended her to just about everyone in Charleston.

Wedding and Event Makeup

I so appreciated having the opportunity to meet with Merit, who was extremely engaging, professional and open to my request to have a make up lesson to determine how to use my existing products, improve upon my existing presentation and develop a shopping list of products that would build upon my current collection that I have used over the years. This meeting was not event focused yet I believe I could use this instruction to prepare my make up for a special occasion. That said, Merit went step by step through the make up application process, she listened to my practices, offered suggestions and recommendations to better meet my individual make up needs. Moreover, she followed up with recommended products that would offer me the best "bang for my buck" when purchasing new products in the future. I would not think twice to call Merit with my make up concerns. That said, I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a professional and practical experience. Finally, she has a wonderful array of You Tube presentations on make up application that are very informative and give some insight into her style and expertise.

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

    My goal is for you to be the most beautiful and confident. I always do a consultation asking what you're going to be wearing, what makeup style you like, details about what you do and don't prefer with makeup, the little things that make the goal of your look stand out more!

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

    I have trained under many well known makeup artists, and apprenticed at salons. I have also taken extra classes in New York.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I got started in college. I was training to be an actress, but fell in love with makeup. How a certain lip or eye color could make someone transform, and become more confident and carry themselves a different way. It led me to study the history of makeup, the different trends from different eras, and I read everything I could and started apprenticing other makeup artists.
