Hi, I'm Kaelin. Professional makeup artist and licensed esthetician residing in beautiful Bend, OR


I am happy you're here, I can't wait to share my passion with you.  I realized early on I had an interest in makeup, and was fascinated by the power it had to enhance and transform.  I made the decision to pursue a career in the beauty industry and became a licensed Esthetician in 2004.  I began working for Mac Cosmetics shortly after, and have been a freelance artist ever since.  I've worked in many facets of the industry including commercial, film, editorial, bridal, special event and studio.  Each client presents a unique canvas with endless possibilities.  I received training in the AMAZING hair removal technique of Body Sugaring in 2007 and it changed my life.  If you haven't heard of it, please check out my Sugaring page for more information, you wont be sorry.  I haven't touched wax since and the results I've seen over the past seven years have been incredible.  You should know that I have a love affair with brows, fresh glowing skin and lashes.  As a makeup artist I generally prefer to use individual false lashes so I can create a custom look to complement each client.  After years of using this technique to apply false lashes I finally took the lash extension plunge and I couldn't be more excited about the opportunity to create luxury, custom lashes to flatter each one of my beautifully unique clients.


Today I see beauty everywhere I go, in every face I see, in every single soul.

When I'm not working, or collaborating with other creatives you can usually find me adventuring as a pirate or ninja, or arrow head hunting with my four year old (son), or chasing after my wild two year old (daughter).  Enjoying some local music and eats with my husband, hiking, or by the water.  You can't take the island out of this girl.
