About Betsy

Webster Groves, MO 1974
My life long love of makeup began when I was four. I vividly remember sitting at my picnic table in the backyard with a shoe box full of my Mom’s Merle Norman castoffs. I was grandly outfitted in my grandmother’s scratchy 1950’s era lavender tulle formal, armed with a mirror and no reservations. Oh, and one of my little neighborhood friends to
“practice” on...
For two decades, I have worked alongside industry professionals and renowned makeup artists, cultivating my skills and advancing my education. I am also fortunate enough to have learned valuable pointers on how to look your best in photos from some of the expert photographers with whom I have worked. As a result, I have developed a collaborative style that still guides and advises, but at the same time strengthens a client’s confidence in knowing that the makeup is ultimately only an enhancement of her beauty.
It does not define it.
