About Karen R.

Close

I teach correct and enhancing makeup techniques according to clients skin tone, facial shape, and facial features. I use the Seasonal Color Analysis approach to determine what skin tone the client is, either cool or warm. I have an extensive beauty field background. Early in my adulthood, I became a licensed cosmetologist in Minnesota. I have also been active as a Beauty Consultant almost all of my adult years with two different cosmetic companies. I love working with women and encouraging them to look and feel their very best, which boosts their self-esteem and self-confidence.

Wesley is just wonderful. I felt comfortable with him as soon as we met and I learned so much in just the first 30 minutes. And I already feel so much more confident that my speaking engagement will rock now that I have Wesley as my coach!

AMAZING first session😊 The exchanges between Wes and Jenna were flawless...almost like two people that sparked up a conversation where they left off!! He acknowledged Jenna's dreams and goals and had experienced insight to provide! Jenna is looking forward to working on her assignments and lesson #2!!!

I am constantly asked my friends, family, and STRANGERS about helping them to do their makeup. Whether it's basic skills for every day looks, or more difficult and complex techniques for more dramatic looks, I'm your gal!

I LOVE makeup so much. I started wearing makeup in the 8th grade and I have been doing my own makeup ever since! Yes, yes, yes I make sure my make up isn't cakey and I know how to match the perfect foundation to your skin tone and most importantly i know how to BLEND! I am also very good at working WITH my clients face so wether you would like for me to do your makeup or teach you how to do makeup, you will not be dissapointed! I can do almost any makeup look. From the "no-makeup" makeup look to full glam like Kim Kardashian! Even drag makeup! Please contact me for pricing!
