Highly recommend

Kara is an exceptional makeup artist! I have gone to her for my makeup needs several times over the years and she always delivers excellent work. She has been especially helpful in deciding styles for me that help to highlight my outfits, and I trust her to make decisions when im unsure about what would look best.

Hi, I'm Kara (pronounced like "cargo", not "carrot"; po-tae-to, po-tah-to, right?) I'm an aspiring Renaissance Woman, with too many passions and hobbies to keep track of! But at my core, I am an artist -- not only in makeup, but also in acting.

I know how nerve-racking getting ready can be. You are perfectly beautiful as is, but there are some occasions where you want to put your best face forward -- when you look your best, you feel your best too. Let me help you put on the war paint so you can prepare for your event with less stress!
