The world of fashion is alluring, exciting and runs on a tight regimen.
After Kassaundra completed her training with Shu Uemura at the Atelier Boutique in Newport Beach, California, the jobs for runway fashion makeup came pouring in. She would receive pictures of stunning designer outfits, and would then create face charts to compliment the total look.
As a fashion makeup artist and hair stylist, she was able to step into the world of high fashion, excited and curious, partaking in highly orchestrated shows.
Having 5 to 10 minutes with each model taught her early on to create exquisite work in a very short amount of time. She learned from the start to highly value these opportunities. She used these gained learning experiences in her ongoing work– when there is not always an ample amount of time to get a client ready for an event.
Working in the fast paced fashion show environment will always be preserved and implemented.
Kassaundra's makeup and hair looks have appeared on the runway and in magazines with some of the following designers, Armani, Dior, Chanel, Tom Ford, Cartier and Galia Lahav.
