Hey guys, my name's Aleya! I've been a professional makeup and hair artist since 2011. My main passion for makeup is in the Bridal industry. I absolutely adore doing makeup for weddings and getting to hear all your lovely love stories.
During my time as an artist, I've had the incredible privilege to work with numerous well-known artists in the Houston area, collaborating on fashion shows for luxury brands such as Nordstrom, Tootsies, Macy’s, and Saks Fifth Avenue. My work's been featured on commercials for Mann Eye Institute (starring George Foreman), Luminess Air, Walmart, and Sonic, as well as television shows such as Rima, Fuego, and the Children on PBS and sporting events such as Super Bowl 51, Inside the NFL, the Houston Astros, and COPA America. I've worked as a hair and makeup artist on the feature film 'Good After Bad' starring Maddie Hasson and Billy Burke, and have even done some makeup for political campaigns for Houston's mayor, Sylvester Turner, as well as a Dan Patrick vs. David Dewhurst Lt. Governor Debate. One of my favorite jobs to date, though, was the time I got to meet and do makeup on Brendon Urie of 'Panic! At The Disco!' during the March Madness Music Festival.
Behind the brand:
When I was younger, I was often called 'Freckle Face' as an insult. I learned to hate my freckles and tried to cover them with makeup through all of junior high and most of high school. By the time I got to college, I stopped covering my freckles and embraced them as a part of me that made me unique. with this same sentiment, I come to my clients with an individualistic approach and by no means have a one-size-fits-all makeup technique. I would love to make your unique features stand out and celebrate your diversity. <3 Aleya Duncan
