KVS Makeup


résumé


INTRODUCTION:

Combining two favorite aesthetic loves (beauty & horror) I graduated from Westmore Makeup Academy (Burbank) in 2010 where my studies focused on glamour, special effects & vintage hair styling.

Within months of graduating I provided assistant makeup artist duties on both the 'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' live show and The Golden Gods Awards TV special.

I am personable, friendly, and knowledgeable about products, looks and techniques. Making the talent in my chair feel confident, comfortable and gorgeous is paramount!
