Kim first became interested in makeup from a desire to learn how to properly apply her own but was continually disappointed by the styles and techniques demonstrated on her own face.
Kim’s most significant areas of frustration with the techniques were that they did not seem to accommodate her eye shape, lifestyle, and skin tone. The makeup often tended to look and feel too heavy. Often the techniques resulted in her thinking she just had on too much product and didn’t look or feel like herself.
You’ve heard “If you want something done right, then you do it yourself” right? This frustration prompted her to take a class which focused on bridal makeup application. From there, her fascination with makeup and skincare grew. Who knew that those interests would actually be channeled into a career!
And thus was born About Face Makeup Artistry. Her mission is to style makeup in a way that honors a woman’s natural beauty while creating a more polished version that looks and feels flattering, wearable, and occasion appropriate. Kim sought colors and techniques that were appropriate for her skin tone and complexion. Her goal is to enhance, not obscure a woman’s natural features.
Over time, Kim has developed her own signature style of artistry that she translates in a unique way to each of her clients. She uses her painterly technique to ensure that your features are beautifully enhanced and occasion appropriate.
