Profile and About Kirsten Sylvester Makeup Artist

About me...

I have been doing makeup for over 17 years. Having loved art fashion and makeup my entire life, I eventually used my love of art to pursue the study of Fine Arts. I truly believe that in my line of work that the face is a canvas, the only difference is the "paint" washes off.

My experience in the industry ranges from editorial, runway, film, television, commercial and corporate work. Though being a part of creating a complete beautiful image no matter what the job, editorial and runway are my truest passions.

I have a very "artistic" approach to my makeup application, using the best in brushes and other makeup applicators. I believe in making the "model" camera ready to diminish work in post. I use predominantly MAC Cosmetics and have an extensively supplied makeup kit.

I truly have a passion for what I do, and believe in giving my clients the look they want to achieve, whether it be simple and clean to the most creative and avant-garde.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work, and I look forward to hearing from you.
