Hi, I'm Kim Porter, I'm a business coach, educator, speaker and professional makeup artist. I have over 17 years working in the makeup industry, my business Makeup by Kim Porter, has been featured in the top wedding magazines and blogs, I have worked with hundreds of brides, as well as politicians and celebrities. I created my Kim Porter Beauty line in 2012 and own a makeup studio in Virginia Beach, VA.
