My formal makeup artistry training is from Makeup Designory (MUD) Los Angeles and I've studied and trained with many talented greats in the beauty industry over the years. I'm currently one of the Certified Educators for world-famous Dinair Airbrush North Hollywood, and I travel all over the USA with their beauty team to teach and work expos. Like the makers of LipSense, Dinair is a woman-owned organization that manufactures all their products in the USA and supports a cruelty-free business. Dina Ousley, the Found of Dinair is a practicing Vegan. In 2012 and 2013, I was blessed to have been selected to be the very first Lead Makeup Artist for SeneGence International, and I truly enjoyed training the company's live workshops and teaching webinars for their thousands of distributors. The CEO & Founder, Joni Rogers-Kante, offered me the opportunity to create my very own LipSense Shade and with the help of their Mixologist, I came up with a great color called, "Kelly's Krush". It's a mix of a rose and mauve with a hit of mica for some pop, and today, it's still popular and a part of the company's permanent line of lip colors.
I've been in the wedding beauty business since 1999 and run a private makeup studio and dry bar in beautiful Canyon Lake, Southern California. I'm married to the smartest man in the world and celebrate the "his", "mine" and "ours" of our happy life on 3 acres in a rural area near by.
