Meet Ashlee

ashleeHey all! First, I’d like to thank you for visiting my website! It’s new and fancy and I will be doing my best to keep it updated with new pics, my adventures, and hopefully some tutorials via my blog! I’d love to hear what kind of things all my guests would be interested in seeing in my blog, so email me and let me know! I’m here to keep you looking your best and up on the some of the greatest skin and cosmetic products that are out on the market!

My career is 9 years in the making and going strong! I’m a working Professional Makeup Artist and Senior National/International Educator originally from San Diego, California. I now currently reside in New Mexico. I have a broad range of experience spanning from beauty makeup to airbrush and body painting. My passion and inspiration has always been in creating. I’ve worked in many different artistic mediums; painting, sculpting, and beautifying the faces of men and woman from all walks of life. I’ve been lucky enough to work with beautiful “every day women”, to the models at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and individuals gracing the pages of some incredible magazines.

I am well educated and experienced in many remarkable skin care and cosmetic lines. I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to freelance for many different companies and have an exclusively well-rounded education in product knowledge and application. My kit includes a lot of different lines to ensure I have every product my clients may require. I keep it current and clean. Sanitary practice is priority number one when working on any client.

I’m currently available for contract/freelance/bridal bookings nationally and worldwide. Inquire for daily rates and pricing. I specialize in bridal, editorial, airbrushing, body painting, period makeup, fantasy, and avante garde. Also available for film work.
