MY NAME IS MACKENZIE
Hi! My name is Mackenzie and I am the makeup artist behind Cosmetics By Mackenzie. I am a Certified Professional Makeup Artist with over six years of experience in this industry. My love for makeup first began when I was twelve years old, where I was allowed to wear a small amount of makeup, and from there my passion grew. I began freelancing during high school and decided to take the next step to better my artistry and expand my knowledge of this industry.
MY FAVORITE THINGS:
I packed up my things and moved to Nashville,TN to attend the Academy of Makeup Arts where I completed over 300+ hours of training specializing in makeup regarding bridal, airbrushing, TV/Film, and editorial. My main goal is making my clients feel beautiful for their special day. Creating a fun, stress-free, and relaxing environment for my clients is what I strive for!
A professional makeup artist ensures that your makeup application will last all day and night as well as making sure the makeup photos beautifully in all lighting scenarios. These are photos that will last a lifetime, so why not ensure that you look flawless in them? Professionals customize all makeup products to your specific needs and know which products will look best on you! With a professional you will not have to worry about them showing up late or bailing on you last minute.
The services I provide are available for all of your makeup needs. I do everything from weddings, proms, pageants, holiday parties, boudoir and maternity shoots, family pictures, and even personal makeup lessons.
I specialize in makeup applications only, however I do have connections to many talented hairstylists in the area that I can recommend!
Of course! I provide services everywhere from your home, hotel, venue, etc. I'm based in Birmingham, AL but I don't just travel around this area. I'm available for travel anywhere in the United States!
My services are booked on a first come, first serve basis. In order to reserve your date a signed contract along with a retainer fee is due at the time of booking. This retainer is non-refundable and non- transferable. I recommend booking as soon as possible to ensure your date is secured!
Yes! I don't require them, but I highly recommend them. I want to make sure you look and feel your best for your big day. In a trial I address everything from your do's and don'ts to your skin type and any allergies you may have. All of this affects how your makeup will last and turn out in pictures. I typically like to schedule a trial 4-8 weeks in advance.
I provide services for anyone needing makeup on the wedding day. Depending on the amount of time given to do makeup and how many members of the bridal party need makeup I may have to hire an assistant. All of my assistants are hand picked and fabulous!
At this time, I only offer traditional makeup services. I find that with the new formulas of foundation, I can pick one from my kit that is specific to your needs and skin type and can get it to last just as long if not longer than an airbrush foundation application.
I like to give myself around 45 minutes to an hour to complete a full face. Sometimes it takes less than that, but it really just depends on what the client is wanting in the makeup application.
