About Ashley

I never thought I would love anything as much as singing and acting on stage until I became a makeup artist.  Performing will always be my first love, but makeup artistry has become a true passion of mine.

In 2006, I became an esthetician in the state of California. Even in school for esthetics, I gravitated to makeup and knew that I would eventually end up as an artist.

In 2007, I managed Kate Somerville skin care for Nordstrom and still continued to work closely with various makeup lines. When I left the company, I decided to further my education for makeup and attended the Cinema Makeup School in Los Angeles for the High Fashion program.

In 2009, I began work for the Polish Cosmetic line Inglot in Newport Beach, CA. Since then, I have moved to Virginia and work freelance for weddings, special occasions, boudoir, fashion, and can do tutorials.

In the past few months, I have become a consultant for a remarkable botanical skin care and cosmetic line called Pink Papaya which I have become thoroughly impressed with. If clients are interested in purchasing and/or learning more about these products I can provide that service for them. However, I will continue to use my plethora of cosmetics from various lines including MAC, Nars, Inglot…etc. for photo shoots and weddings if there are professional cosmetic needs that Pink Papaya does not yet provide (i.e. lashes, more extensive choice of color and so on).

"It is my goal to make my clients feel and look their best by bringing out their natural beauty."
