Kaelin was born and raised on a small island in Southeast Alaska, and now resides in beautiful Bend, Oregon with her husband and two little ones. She is passionate about the art of makeup , and believes we all possess an incredible, unique natural beauty; her job is to compliment what is already there. Kaelin takes pride in her work and feels she has done her job well if each client walks away feeling confident, beautiful and pampered.
Kaelin began experimenting with her own stage makeup in junior high while dancing with the ballet school. Her talent and creativity were immediately evident, and It wasn't long before other dancers requested her services. It was when she was gifted Kevin Aucoin's books, Face Forward and Making Faces that she understood the magic of makeup's ability to enhance and transform...she was hooked.
She received her Esthetician license in 2004, moved to Philadelphia shortly after, and began working for MAC Cosmetics. Kaelin received professional training from seasoned artists in the MAC world during her employment. She has worked as a freelance makeup artist for weddings, special events and commercial/editorial for over eleven years. Kaelin owned and operated an Esthetician business in Anchorage, Alaska before moving to Oregon. She is excited to bring her talent, experience, and love for the art to Bend!
