Magnolia Artistry is truly amazing

Choosing Magnolia Artistry for my wedding day was one of the best decisions I made. Chelsea did a phenomenal job on my bridal makeup as well as for our moms. She listened to exactly what we wanted in each of our looks, and we absolutely loved the partial lash application for a more subtle look.

The team is quick to respond, communicative, professional, flexible, and so sweet. Chelsea is super patient, fun to talk to, kind, and gave great advice on skincare products and a routine that really work. I cannot thank this incredibly talented team enough! 10/10 recommend - you will feel stunning and be so happy you worked with Magnolia Artistry!

Co-Owner/Makeup Artist

Sophia has had a passion for all things beauty since childhood. She has been in the makeup industry for over fifteen years, working with high end beauty brands in the retail industry and freelancing weddings, special events, and photography. Sophia studied makeup in Toronto, ON and is a licensed master esthetician in the state of Virginia.

Co-Owner/Makeup Artist

Chelsea started her makeup career in retail working and training with both high end brands and non-toxic mineral lines. During this time is when she discovered that her true passion was outside of sales, in on-location freelancing. That is when she started her own brand in ChelseaIrelandHMUA, working weddings and photoshoots by referrals, as well as contracting for bridal salons in Richmond.

Chelsea studied hair and trained as an apprentice for some time, but ultimately decided that makeup artistry is her true calling. She has been in the beauty industry for over a decade.
