About Shanelle

"I’ve been passionate about beauty, art, and people for as long as I can remember."

I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelors degree in Psychology and Sociology. After graduating, I combined my love for beauty and interest in people to become a professional makeup artist. I’m constantly learning and perfecting my craft by taking classes, shadowing those more experienced, and self-education..

A Virginia Lover at Heart ...

I am a northern Virginia makeup artist that's been working with people with all types of complexions and a wide variety of distinctive features for a number of years. Although I am young with modern sensibilities, my training has prepared me to be able to work with people of any age group. My familiarity with countless cosmetics brands and ability to employ a wide range of techniques enables me to highlight my client's best features. Some people call me the Stafford makeup artist because of where I grew up, but most people know me as a versatile beauty specialist because of my experience working with many different types of clients.


Ever since I was a child, art and beauty have been my passions. My mother's makeup was my favorite toys and I learned many tips and tricks that I taught to my friends growing up. I practiced on them and they learned from me what made them look good. After earning a degree in psychology and sociology, I embraced my love for makeup, beauty, and people and chose a career as a professional makeup artist. Taking advanced classes to perfect my craft, networking and collaborating with other creative people has fueled my continued growth. I love to travel, so being a mobile makeup artist is the ideal career for me.
