Rhea’s Story:

My love affair with makeup began as a young child with my background in ballet, violin and acting, I found that makeup served as a visual art form; in addition I was able to help and serve others. I knew I always had an  interest in makeup but wasn’t sure how I could make a career out of it. However, in 2001 while working at Lancome I had decided that I was going to give makeup artistry a shot as my career.

 

In 2002,  I apprenticed under Corinne Williams (owner of Façade in Houston, TX) and found myself working with brides; which I love. I was airbrush certified in 2006.

Throughout the years, my career has led me across the Southwest working in every avenue of the makeup industry. I’ve had the honor to do makeup for NFL Quarterback Drew Brees, AMC Red Carpet, AZ Diamondbacks for ESPN, Dos Equis, U.S. Olympian Swimmers, Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls, Texas Representative Donna Howard, Fashion Designer/Clothing Line Isabella Taylor, and more. I also appeared on AZTV’s Monday Morning Makeover show performing live makeovers on everyday viewers.

 

In 2012, I realized my dream and opened Adore Makeup Boutique where I see my clients for makeup bar/ makeup lessons/makeup parties. We have a blast! Adore has high-quality cosmetics such as Jentry Kelley Cosmetics, The Balm, and Glo, and provides the best hair, lashes, and brows in the biz. I’m lucky enough to have an amazing team and just so very grateful!
