ROSALIE   Makeup Artist

Rosalie started studying cosmetology at 16. From the moment she learned the fundamentals of makeup artistry she knew that she had found her passion. With a love for painting, she saw makeup artistry as a mix of painting and sculpting: learning how to put the color wheel to use on the skin, as well as enhancing and diminishing using variations of light and dark. She loves teaching simple techniques to cover or enhance a clients problem area or favorite feature and to have them feel confident in the fact that they too can achieve this look on their own.

She loves to show clients that it is not necessary to cover up their gorgeous faces with layers and layers of makeup. That in fact, they can achieve a beautiful, finished look with just 5 products if they wish. But she always encourages their creativity in bolder looks if that is what makes them smile.

Makeup is about shining from within as well as a bit of color or sparkle on the surface for fun.
