i'm Kiley.

Hello!

My makeup mantra has always been "less is more."

As a musical theatre performer in the NYC/NJ area, I loved makeup – the cakey, heavy stage looks, not as much.
Then, at my own wedding, I found myself in a similar predicament: heavily made up to the point of not looking entirely like myself.

I dedicated myself to honing my passion for natural makeup artistry for beauty, bridal, film and TV, perfecting my craft and learning from industry experts James Vincent, Kristina Gasperas, Terri Tomlinson, Danessa Myricks, Ashley Fierro,
and Rachel Lusk, among others.

I launched my professional career in the Shenandoah Valley. My work has been featured in respected platforms such as
Washington Family Magazine, the Emmy Awards (Capital Region), The 700 Club on CBN, DCW50 (Washington DC's
CW Network), and Everyday Wealth, a nationally syndicated video broadcast of the podcast/radio show hosted by Soledad O'Brien and Jean Chatzky.

Now, I create timeless, skin-forward makeup looks that put my clients’ natural beauty center stage. When I'm not sanitizing brushes, I indulge in reading, baking, practicing calligraphy, and cherishing moments with my family and miniature poodle.
