Ashley Arnett

Makeup Artist

I know that every face tells a different story and my mission is to bring that story to life. I strongly believe that makeup is one of the most impactful ways to express yourself and whether your story is a tale of natural clean beauty, a touch of classic, modern to trendy, or something a bit more sultry and tempting you deserve to look and feel beautiful. After becoming licensed in 2012 from Middle Georgia Technical College, I became entranced by the world of makeup and worked day and night to perfect my craft. I then accepted a Makeup Artist position that allowed me to become an expert on all skin types, ethnic groups, and ages. Shortly there after, I was honored with the privilege to work with the Arkansas Ballet Company. As my passion for makeup grew I became addicted to making women feel their best and became certified to teach makeup application, so women could make themselves feel beautiful too. Makeup is more than a hobby to me. It is art, it is beauty, it is passion and I am devoted to delivering the very best and making sure that you feel your very best.

Celeste Mooney

Makeup Artist

Although I am fairly new to makeup artistry as a professional, I have years of excitement for this industry and what it can do to make a person feel good inside and out. It all began for me at a young age when I would do my own stage makeup for competitive cheerleading. I fell in love with the process and found tutorials on Youtube that essentially built the foundation for me on how to apply makeup. Throughout high school, my passion continued while doing homecoming and prom makeup every year. After graduating in 2018, I made the decision to go to Raphael's School of Beauty to become an Esthetician and learned more technique from my instructor, who had her own business as a MUA. I then became licensed by the state of Ohio in May of 2021. With only being 21 years old, I feel as though I have my finger on the pulse of trends and styles of today’s beauty industry. Specializing in soft glam, my favorite style is enhancing natural features of the face, so that you truly look and feel like the most beautiful version of yourself.

Faye Kody

 

Makeup Artist

Makeup sales and artistry have been my core profession for the past 22 years.  A start with Shiseido and Chanel helped strengthen my knowledge in skincare and color, preparing me for a 16 year career with MAC Cosmetics where I worked as an artist, manager, and trained staff as a regional educator. I believe every woman is beautiful and take pride in using my knowledge to provide a true collaboration with my clients for all of their life’s special moments. My favorite makeup looks are the ones that naturally enhance your features. But I can also turn the glam all the way up!  I sincerely look forward to being a part of your special occasion!
