About Wendy K.

I am a Television, Film, Photographic, Bridal and Beauty Makeup Artist with 33 years of experience. As well as working directly in these industries I have taught News talent, physician broadcasters, actors, CEO's who are interviewed a great deal and Brides to do their own makeup.
I also teach day and evening makeup to any woman who would like to learn to apply their own makeup perfectly & use brushes properly. A makeup bag clean-out is included with a lesson even if it is online. This is a great way to enhance your natural looks and feel great !

Wendy is a true artist in every sense of the word! She's a spectacular make-up artist and a phenomenal teacher!!! I had the pleasure of working with her at CBS2 in Chicago from 2008 - 2010. She transformed my whole image and taught me beauty tricks that I still use more than a decade later. Wendy creates magic -- she's sooooo good at making eyes "pop." I can't recommend her enough!
