When asked “when did you know you wanted to be a makeup artist?” my response is that of
“I think I’ve always known. I’ve always just wanted to color.”
My name is Natasha Shipley and my love for makeup artistry started on the stage and snuck up on me! Being in numerous musical productions throughout high school and college, I quickly discovered my passion for makeup and learning its proper application and techniques. This love and desire to “color” has provided me with so
many opportunities over the years.
I started doing makeup, as well as styling hair, for many friends because it was fun to play and recreate new looks. Then, this passion took me to becoming a travel and featured artist for the Estee Lauder owned cosmetic line, Prescriptives, in the Oklahoma City Metro area. I have been a travel freelance artist for MAC Cosmetics, and currently freelance and do most of my work for and using the Oklahoma owned and operated, Sooo Lilly Exclusive Cosmetics. Through this, I have met some wonderful people who opened up many doors for me, and gave me a chance just as I was starting out!
Over the years now, I have provided artistry for the Oklahoma episode of MTV’s MADE, OklaVision, as well as tv appearances on News Channel 9 and Fox 25, and currently the makeup artist/stylist on set for US Fleet Tracking commercials. Publications involve cover shot for Brag Book Magazine, TwentySomething Magazine, Distinctly Oklahoma, Brides of Oklahoma, and many images for The Daily Oklahoman’s MOOD/Fashion division, along with many local boutiques for their web pages. The newest publication includes images in the coffee table book for Los Angeles owned and based Allen Henson Photography, whose work is featured in many fashion magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, W, RUNWAY Magazine, and RUNWAY Uomo.
I have had the honor of being the makeup artist for Mrs. Oklahoma 2011, Megan Murray, Mrs. Oklahoma United States 2012, Simone Geolz and Mrs. Rhode Island United States 2012, Tonya Hurteau, both in which I was able to be their artist for the Mrs. United States 2013 Pageant in Las Vegas, NV. I have now become one of 3 artists providing artistry to the contestants of the Mrs. Universe 2013 Pageant held at the Lincoln Center July of 2013.
My work has also been featured by local modeling agencies such as Anthony David Modeling, Sharon Tabb Models, Brink Model Management, Video Junkies, and Je Suis.
