A photographer turned professional makeup artist is helping her clients feel refreshed and renewed in the new year! Read on to learn more.
Meg Valentine has more than 20 years experience in the professional makeup industry. After working as a national artist for the the makeup and skincare line Trish McEvoy Cosmetics, she decided it was time to step out and take her professional passion to the next level as an entrepreneur.
What started out as a photography business in the early 2000s, Valentine has since combined her love of photography with her passion for makeup, launching Meg Valentine Professional Makeup Artistry.
This one-woman show offers professional makeup for clients.
“Meg Valentine Professional Makeup Artistry is an elegant, cozy space where I do makeup artistry for any modern day woman who wants to look beautiful for a simple evening out, special events, for brides, for photography clients, models, or just for fun,” she says.
Valentine says that women from every walk of life sit in her makeup chair, and she works with each client individually to determine the look they want.
“Once we determine, together, what look and style will make her feel the most renewed and refreshed, I go to work,” she adds.
Valentine says that her artistry ranges from simple, classical looks often requested by brides to polished looks for the modern woman.
“I also do pinup and boudoir glamour makeup all the way through the most current editorial, Instagram, and theatrical looks,” she adds.
The passion that Valentine puts into the work she does for her clients is what she says makes her business unique. “My parents always told me, find something I have a passion for, and if I could also make money doing that, I would always be happy in life,” she says.
Now that the calendar has officially flipped to 2018, Valentine says that she is planning events for the year, with the goal of having at least one themed “Makeup Tips & Champagne Sips” part each month. “They are always so much fun for both myself and my clients,” she adds.
