"Kiley did my makeup for the photoshoot for my album cover. I was so happy with the job she did that I immediately made plans to hire her again! She did beautiful work that looked great on camera, and she was bright and cheerful and easy to work with the whole time. I'm so grateful for her creativity and professionalism. THANK YOU for taking my photoshoot to the next level!!"

Behind the brushes
Hello! My name is Kiley and I am a makeup artist serving the DMV area and beyond. I specialize in natural romantic makeup looks that let your true beauty shine through.
At University I trained in makeup artistry for beauty, bridal, stage, film, and TV. After graduating, I worked for two years as the Resident Makeup Artist at Encore Salon 215 Spa in Lexington, Virginia. I then took a brief hiatus to raise my two children.
In 2019 I returned to makeup artistry and became the resident makeup artist at Mara Hair and Mode Studio in Fairfax, Virginia.
As a makeup artist, I believe that makeup should enhance the client's features, not cover them up.
I love to learn and develop my craft, so I am continually learning from other artists by taking classes virtually and when possible in person. I've been lucky enough to learn from some of the best artists in the business such as James Vincent, Valentyna Lelyukh, Laetitia Lemak, Ioana Cristea, Danessa Myricks, Charlotte Tilbury, Shari Kramer, Kristina Gasperas, and others.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my husband (a professional actor), two amazing children, and Hermes, our miniature poodle.
