About Kiley

FROM ACTRESS TO MAKEUP ARTIST

Kiley was born and raised in New Jersey and from a young age, she was involved in theatrical productions throughout the NYC/NJ area. Even though she loved being on stage, her real passion was behind the scenes. At university, she trained in makeup artistry for beauty, bridal, stage, film, and TV.​

After graduation, Kiley started working professionally in the Shenandoah Valley. While there she worked with many destination brides, clients, and photographers from around the world.

Kiley's background in so many artistry mediums sets her apart. She learned the importance of layering and building a character's look from scratch while doing theatrical makeup, the beauty of less is more with editorial, and the importance of detail with TV/Movies. With her education and years of experience, she is able to sit with clients, photographers, and companies to create looks built on their exact needs.

As a makeup artist, Kiley specializes in radiant, romantic makeup looks which allow the beauty of the client to be center stage. She believes that makeup should enhance clients' features, not conceal them. Her favorite looks to create are classic ones, as they withstand the test of time.

Kiley has worked with many amazing photographers including Bee Two Sweet Photography, Beauty of the Soul Studio, Lisa Sheldon Photography, Julie Rivera Photography, David Schwartz Photography, and many more.

Kiley loves to learn and develop her craft, so she is continually learning from other artists by taking classes virtually and when possible in person. She's 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 her spare time, she loves spending time with her husband (a professional actor), their two incredible children, and miniature poodle.​
