Radiant Beauty By Ashley
From timeless elegance to eye catching drama, having the right makeup can make all the difference in the way you feel, the way you photograph and the way you remember a special day. Art was my first love until I discovered makeup to be my favorite medium. Makeup allows me to be creative and work with “talking canvases”. There’s a true art to knowing the best color, product or technique to highlight a client’s best qualities while still maintaining their lifestyle & personalities.
I use trusted, high-end products from brands such as Bobbi Brown, MAC, Laura Mercier, Benefit, NARS, Urban Decay, Stila and others as well as clean makeup options.
Q & A with Ashley!
Q: How long have you been a Makeup Artist? A: I’ve been a makeup artist for 18 years professionally but an artist as soon as I could hold a pencil (or get into my mother’s makeup).
Q: Favorite band/musician? A: Impossible question for this HUGE music lover but these days I listen to mostly Alternative Rock but Led Zeppelin continues to stand the test of time. But seriously, I have an unbelievably broad playlist…you’d be stunned!
Q: Favorite way to spend your free time? A: Being with family and friends (along with good food/drinks) and Mommy/daughter time with Amelia Grace: the cutest, auburn-haired girl I know. If money were no object, I’d also add regularly scheduled spa treatments and frequent trips to Paris for un café au lait (and chocolate croissants) but c’est la vie…a girl can dream!
Q: Describe yourself in 20 words or less! A: Genuine, creative, passionate, good-hearted, fun, outgoing, grounded, foodie, music lover, coffee addict, writer, traveler, planner, good friend, wife & mother.
Q: Red lipstick or pink lipstick? A: Perfectly pinkalicious pink all the way…red if I’m feeling Audrey Hepburn or Gwen Stefani-ish. Most often you’ll find me in a tinted lip balm.
