About Kelsea

How it all began...

Thank you for taking your time to browse photos of my current work! Before you continue I thought you might want to know a little bit about me as an artist. I started to learn the art of makeup in 2013. As a struggling college student, a temporary job at Sephora opened up and I graciously accepted. The thing is, what I thought was a temporary holiday job, turned into a deep passion for art, creativity, and escape. 

I always say I didn't find makeup, makeup found me.

I graduated in 2015 with my Bachelor's Degree from Old Dominion University. About half way into my junior year I realized my passions had changed. Just hearing "Thank you for teaching me how to care for my skin, or "I am the artist I am today because you helped me", just does something to you.

 I wouldn’t be a the same person I am today without my love for makeup and skin.

I have accomplished a lot in just six years. Starting off at Sephora gave me the push I needed to be emerged in the beauty industry and learn the basics. As I became more confident in my skills more and more opportunities became available for me to grow and learn everyday.

 “Even the most famous artists started as an amateur”.

The Future

After being in Sephora for five years I made a transition to a more luxurious atmosphere and more freedom. In April 2017 I helped open the first Bluemercury in Hampton Roads, VA. It has expanded my product knowledge and given me more freedom as an artist. Since then I have done bridal parties of 9+, makeup for fashion shows including NYFW Spring and Fall, Key Artist for 2  fashion shows, numerous photo shoots for View Finders VA and local photographers and videographers, published in multiple magazines, worked with celebrity clients, and over the years taught thousands of people the skills they want to learn. After being on photography sets for 2 years I decided to try my hand at photography myself. I enjoy being able to create my vision from start to finish. Photography and makeup are a passion of mine and I hope to do it for the rest of my life. Feel free to leave reviews of your experiences, contact me with questions. I hope to talk to you soon!
