Beauty & Health
My love affair with makeup started with a "free gift with purchase". My grandmother was always perfectly put together and gave me her "gifts" from Estee' Lauder...and so it began. I made my friends over in junior high, high school, and everyone else who would let me get near them. When I went to cosmetology school, I realized hair was not my forte. But, obsession with makeup hit a new level and I couldn't get enough. Of course, that was the late 80's where there were no boundries with makeup! My life took a turn into the management and customer service world of salons, but my makeup passion remained. In 2000, I went back to doing makeup full time. I started my own makeup company in 2012, Whip Hand Cosmetics. Please check out our website at www.whiphandcosmetics.com. There you can see more of my work and see what we're about.
Even though I have been doing this for a long time, I continue to attend classes. I love to learn from other people. Because of my intense curiosity and love of all things art, I am able to do everything from everyday looks, beautiful brides, vintage and pin up styles, dramatic ladies, stage work, commercial, and model work. On your special day, you want someone who understands lighting and photo makeup. That someone is me!
Last year, after opening Whip Hand Cosmetics, I couldn't do as many weddings as I would have liked. I really missed it! But this year, I'm excited to be back. I love working with Brides on their special day ;) I am booking weddings in the Grand Rapids and the Metro/Detroit area's. I'd love to chat with you!
I'd love to be a part of your special day. Please contact me for rates...
