Makeup Artist Alessandra Andrade

“I’m passionate about art, technique, and preciseness”, says Alessandra of her work. A Venezuelan native, she has been in the makeup industry for two years. She has an Associates of Arts Degree and is currently finishing up a Fashion Merchandising Degree. She also juggled a job as a makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics during her studies. This is where she gained most of her knowledge and training in hands on makeup application. Working with MAC Cosmetics presented ample opportunities to showcase her talents, and since then she has done makeup for photo shoots, runway/fashion shows, wedding makeup (of eastern and western background), film, bodypainting, and editorial makeup.

Alessandra jump started her career working with Krista Ketsanam from Ketsanam Designs at a fashion show. Since then she has had clients such as: Noureen Dewulf, who is an actress on MTV's "The Hard Times of RJ Berger"and 2012 Miss Texas.

Alessandra specializes in everything from nude to loud, or classic to eccentric. She can also apply editorial, fashion, glamour, performance, promotional, runway, and bridal makeup. She has received extensive training & experience on the field and behind the counter for weddings, various events, and photo shoots with all ages, races, and genders.

Makeup Artist Briana Dai

Briana Dai has nine years of experience in the beauty and entertainment industry. She began as a freelance makeup artist helping newly signed models build their portfolio, doing makeup for weddings, proms, and other special events. At the age of 20, she moved to Los Angeles to work in the film industry and was able to work on numerous films with such stars as Vivica A. Fox, Michael Clark Duncan, and Janine Morris. She has also worked on many television commercials including two worldwide Nestle commercials. She has done makeup for the Emmy Awards and multiple premier events.

After about a year in the Hollywood scene, Briana began to miss the educational aspect of teaching women tricks to make them look red carpet ready. She loves making women look and feel fabulous by teaching them how to recreate their new look at home. Shortly thereafter, Briana fell in love with educating women through YouTube by featuring some of her favorite makeup looks and beauty tips. Briana thinks there is nothing more fulfilling than sharing with another woman a valuable trick that can make her feel like a million bucks, which she is now able to implement at home and feel like a million bucks every day.

She is not the type of makeup artist that “transforms” faces, but one that enhances the natural beauty that is already there. Briana now lives in Dallas, Texas where she continues to use her talent for makeup application for special occasions, instructional beauty lessons, brow shaping, film/television, photography, and other beauty needs.
