I began my beauty journey 20 years ago at my mother's salon while in high school, assisting with weddings, clients, and events. I then moved to Wilmington, NC for college, where I continued to work as a makeup artist with various brands and salons. After building a bridal and editorial portfolio, I was then signed to my first agency in Greensboro, NC. I’ve also worked as a freelance artist with Modelogic in Richmond, VA, and Wilhelmina Nationwide. Since then, I’ve worked backstage at New York Fashion Week, Miami Swim Week, and on set for multiple publications, commercial clients, and Television series.
I currently work as a freelance artist in Los Angeles, with a focus on sustainable and ethical fashion, red carpet, and beauty. My passion for my work is reflected in my portfolio, energy, and relationships with my clients.

“Chelsea is amazing! She did my makeup on my wedding day this last October and I was so happy with how I looked, I have never felt as beautiful as I did that day. She really listens to what you want and gives suggestions if you aren’t exactly sure. I loved how she told me what she was doing along the way and showed me how it looked during the process in case I wanted to change something. She really helped keep me calm on my wedding day and the whole process was stress free. She also did my bridesmaid’s makeup and they all looked beautiful and were so happy with their looks. And we loved our little wedding makeup kits she gave us at the end. Such a cute and thoughtful personal touch. Chelsea is such a talented artist and I would highly recommend her as your makeup artist!”
“Chelsea has done my makeup for several shoots and it’s perfect every time. She’s a master at creating glowing skin and her highlighter placement is truly magnificent. She’s also the best DJ, I highly recommend letting her choose the music for the day ;)”
“I’ve had the pleasure of working on set with Chelsea for several years now. She’s wildly talented, punctual, fun and professional always! Highly recommend!”
