Introduction: I am an experienced professional makeup artist that understands color theory and the art of blending. Specializing in HD photography I can insure 100% foundation matching and a flawless finish. Over the years I have been known to turn a vision into reality. Starting out as a YouTube guru, I developed a sense of empowerment by influencing African American girls across the country. Knowing that makeup can act as an outlet and a voice, I found an opportunity to incorporate just that. All while freelancing, I have written a number of articles on beauty and style for Austin Fit Magazine and was also a makeup artist for their team as well. Over the last 10 years, I've been published in print and online publications, had models walk on the runway, worked for Christian Dior and has even volunteered a few times in return for raising awareness for breast cancer research. I thoroughly enjoy the look on my clients' faces when they look at themselves in the mirror for the first time after their makeup application. Their gasps and how they instantly become infatuated with how they look is what drives me and reminds me of this is why I do what I do. Numerous times I've been told that they never felt as beautiful as they have at that moment. While that is insanely flattering I do remind my clients that they are already beautiful, (and they should never think otherwise) and I'm here to bring out the best in you.

Wedding and Event Makeup

Michelle was amazing. Punctual and profession. Her station and supplies were clean and organized. She accomplished the exact makeup look I was going for. I will definitely hire her for my wedding and any major events in the future.

Wedding and Event Makeup

Michelle worked her magic on both my mother and I with a little sparkle added for my 8 yr old flower girl! She was extremely professional, came early to clean and set up her supplies and the quality of her work was EXCELLENT! I typically don't wear a lot of makeup and tend to get a little glow going under this Texas sun so I requested something light but still dramatic (as this was my surprise wedding day!!). When I said Michelle did a FABULOUS JOB... I couldn't believe the mirror!! She is also extremely personable and really just felt like another extension of my family there through the laughter, celebrations and tears. Will definitely work with Michelle again and highly recommend her services no matter the event or shoot!

Monique, thank you so much for your kind words! I had an incredible time with you and your family. I felt privileged to be a part of your intimate wedding. I will truly cherish the experience and I hope to work with you again in the future.

Wedding and Event Makeup

It was such a fun and OUTSTANDING experience. I myself know nothing about makeup. I know what looks good and how I want things but have zero idea how to do it! Not only did Michelle do exactly what we wanted but she even gave us cute little lip glosses so we could touch up throughout the night (prom)! She was so fun and extremely comfortable to be around! Love her personality and her easy to talk to energy! I would 110% recommend!

Michelle is a true artist. What a delight watching her transform me from drab to fab. She did my makeup for a very important event and her excellence was noticed by other attendees. She is a consummate professional. Thank you, Michelle!!

Michelle was amazing and made me not only look beautiful but I felt beautiful. Her attention to detail and ability to apply makeup with the softest touch was amazing. I will be using her again for all my makeup needs!!!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The pricing varies based on what services are needed.

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

    The first thing I like to do when working with a customer is getting to know them. I'd like to get to know them (and have them get to know me) on a personal level so we can understand one another when it comes to the makeup process. In this introduction (other than personal introductions), I like to go over what the client's needs, wants and expectations are and how I can deliver. Afterwards, I like to give the client a day or two to process and 'shop around' because I want them to feel confident in their decision. I'll follow up and if they're ready to move forward then we'll proceed with scheduling, etc.

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

    I am self taught and I have worked for Dior cosmetics where I received training in skincare regimen and makeup application.
