Hello! I am Ashley Watts, a passionate and dedicated Makeup Artist who's been working the in-demand Cosmetic Industry since 2007. I have experience in many different areas including TV/Film, Salon/Retail Based, Editorial, Fashion, and Bridal/Boudoir.
My career in Makeup started when I met Sheri, and we bonded over the Georgia blush box from Benefit. Turns out, she was the Counter Manager of their Hanes Mall location. Shortly after our initial encounter and my 19th birthday, she offered me a freelancing position with the company. From that moment, I really dove into the cosmetic industry, finding my niche and where my talents belong. I dedicated myself to the brand, the motto, the magic of cosmetics. I was able to move into their Counter Manager position in 2011, rolling out their first Mega-Event at their location, and training my team to be successful Beauty Artists.
After working with the company for 5 years, I knew I needed to focus more on my ultimate goals. Sadly, my goals didn't include Benefit. I left my Counter Manager position and moved into a 9-5 position as an Area Manager, that allowed me to focused more on my role as a parent. I spent whatever free time, that didn't include pretending I'm a cat and pipe cleaner crafts with a 6 year old, building up my business as a reputable Makeup Artist in the area.
When I left Benefit, I knew I wanted to train, educate, and share my unique vision of this industry with every woman. Your event, your makeup, your story is an inspiration to me and reflects in my work. Empowering women to see and embrace the beauty within themselves while educating them on techniques, styles, and colors that suite them is my main business focus.
I am honored to work with many local photographers and business' in the surrounding areas, and could not be more please to represent a community who embraces my perspective, personal business, and supports my ultimate goal.
My Makeup Kit includes: MAC, Benefit, Laura Mercier, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Urban Decay, Temptu, and Juice Beauty.
