Our first Makeup Artist to add to our vendor list is Kelly M!!! Kelly & I met at a photo shoot with my partner Lenz Life Photography. I watched her create a mermaid look for the model. I remember Kelly saying it was her first time creating a look like that and she was just freelancing it! The final result is absolutely stunning. Kelly is super talented and we are really excited to showcase her work here on the blog.
Kelly is a self taught makeup artist, with the exception of a few courses in color theory and bridal makeup, and has been professionally doing makeup for about 3 years. She is located in Glen Clove, New York and will travel to her client anywhere from Long Island to New Jersey.
I asked Kelly what made her want to be a makeup artist and she stated that she has always been an artistic person. Her passion for makeup began as just another artistic outlet, “eventually, I realized I wanted to make it a second career.”
Every makeup artist has their favorite makeup look; Kelly’s is a neutral smokey eye with a winged liner. She indicates “it can be rocked from day to night with just a lipstick change!” Her specialty; however, is bridal makeup, airbrushing and false lashes which you all know here on Okskinny we absolutely love! 🙂
For all you beauty fanatics, Kelly’s go to beauty tip: “Skincare! Beautiful makeup application begins with radiant skin. You should be cleansing and moisturizing day and night!”
