I mentor and coach makeup artists with the steps and strategies to grow their businesses for success!
Hi, I'm so happy you stopped by, if you're a makeup artist or aspiring to be one, you're in the right place!
In a few short years I went from booking just 6 weddings a year to 50 weddings a year, owning a beautiful makeup studio, creating a makeup line, growing a team and becoming one of the most sought after makeup artists in Coastal Virginia. It is my passion to help makeup artists start and grow their businesses for success.

I first met Kim Porter back in June 2015 when I was doing hair for a styled shoot. I was so excited when I found out she was the makeup artist for the shoot. I have always admired her work and had a total fan girl moment when I finally met her. It was fate that I met her, because she was looking for a hairstylist to work with her brides. I was so honored she was even considering me. She later found out that I also did makeup, and I had the opportunity to assist her in many weddings. To work under one of the best in the Hampton Roads Wedding Industry was a dream come true!
Kim is humble and kind, a go-getter, and a wonderful mentor. I know there are other artists that are not always willing to share their knowledge or give advice, but Kim is willing to share. In my time with her, I’ve learned so much about what it takes to run a business and little makeup techniques here and there.
I’ve been fortunate enough to get to know Kim on a professional and personal level. I love Kim and her works so much that I made sure she was my makeup artist for my wedding. Best decision ever! Thank you Kim for all the opportunities you’ve given me. You’re simply the best and I’ll forever be grateful!
