I used to be the Fashion & Beauty Editor of a local magazine. One of my duties was to plan photo shoots, which involves a lot of moving parts and very hard work. I needed a makeup artist, and a friend referred me to Kelli.
We worked together on a couple of shoots, and Kelli really had the expertise to bring my visions to life on our models’ faces. Whether it was a modern shoot or a 1950s-inspired look, Kelli had the artistry and skill to make it happen. She’s professional beyond measure, and a calming presence to be around.
Kelli is a licensed aesthetician, specializes in eyelash extensions, works on commercials, and also teaches makeup classes. Most exciting, Kelli recently announced her new cosmetics line, Forever Adored. She’s an innovator and doesn’t stop until she achieves her goals – a worthy quality to inspire her two young daughters.
Please meet my friend, Kelli.
1) Please tell me a little about YOU.
I am Fresno born. Married with two girls. I have one younger sister and our parents have been married for 31 years!
2) Please tell me about your work/ministry.
I work as a professional makeup artist and licensed aesthetician. Makeup has been a love of mine since I was VERY young. I currently do makeup for tv commercials, corporate videos, weddings, special events, and have recently started offering makeup workshops!
3) Why are you passionate about what you do?
Why am I passionate about makeup? I guess because it’s ever-changing and always interesting. Makeup has been around through the ages and will stick around until the BIG guy calls us all home! Plus it’s a small way that I can help other women feel good about themselves.
4) Why is it important to help others?
Because life is so much more than one person. If all you have to show for your life is what you’ve done for yourself, what does that really say about the precious gift God has blessed you with?
5) How can readers contribute/participate/come alongside you?

6) What makes a woman truly beautiful?
Her heart. How she treats those around her. Her faith. The love and respect she has for herself.
7) What do you like to do in your free time?
Free time? What’s that? Haha!!
8) Since you’re getting on my shoebox, what’s your favorite kind of shoe?
My favorite kind of shoe would have to be a wedge!
OK, I’m getting off my shoebox now.
