About Me

Bethany's career as a make-up artist has spanned two decades but it must have taken its nascent inspiration from the paintbrushes, colored pencils and pastels she always had in her hand as a child. With a strong art background, make-up was just another natural incarnation of her self-expression through a visual medium. But this time it was even more fun and challenging. Canvas weren't all flat, square and white... The art of make-up was to be expressed on vastly different and distinctive canvases, each one with a unique personality and flair that the artistry had to accentuate and celebrate.

Fashion photography and film offered another exhilarating dimension. Make-up, along with the model, the costume and hair styling and the art direction, became a character in the image-makers' ultimate vision. Collaborating with photographers and directors to conceive a desired effect, a creative composition and a lasting message become Bethany's passion and creative motivation.

Bethany was 16 when she completed her first short as the key make-up artist. M.A.C. Cosmetics hired her before she graduated high school and was quickly promoted through the ranks to Creative Artist. Even as M.A.C.'s youngest artist, she was again promoted. As a Trainer, Bethany traveled across North America to conduct training seminars for both staff and customers. After 5 wonderful and inspiring years, Bethany chose to pursue a freelance artistry career. She has since done commercials, editorials, music videos, celebrity special events, runway and advertisements.

Bethany attended the American University of Paris and graduated cum laude with a bachelor degree in International Communications and a minor in French Studies. She has an insatiable curiosity and believes a well rounded and balanced life only bolsters creative energy. She spends many hours happily indulging in her other interests, such as music, film, photography, architecture, dance, yoga, martial arts, mediation, cooking, traveling, reading, studying foreign languages, learning.... and of course, laughing!

Bethany calls Los Angeles home although she has also lived abroad in Florence, Italy and Paris, France.

She is always looking for like-minded artists for shared collaboration.
