My name is Marlee and welcome to my Lavish Lashes page. At an early age, I recognized how simply painted fingernails or a glossy lip made females around me walk and speak with confidence. That visual shaped my interest in makeup and my path to becoming a professional makeup artist. I studied cosmetology during high school and after graduation obtained a license in cosmetology from Altoona Beauty School.
Turning my career toward beauty makeup, I was accepted to the Douglas Education Center in the Tom Savini Special Effects Makeup Program and in 2013 received an Associate Degree in Specialized Business. In this program I learned the art of theatrical makeup, sculpting, life casting, and body and face painting. These skills helped to form my basis for beauty and fashion makeup. Since 2012, I have worked in the salon/spa settings gaining valuable experience in Hair Cutting, Coloring, Styling, manicures, nails, pedicures, facials, eyebrow threading and eyelash extensions. Also during this time, I began my dream career as a Freelance Makeup Artist working with several talented photographers to provide beauty and fashion makeup and hair for weddings, senior photos and fashion photo shoots.
Since becoming certified to perform eyelash extensions through Lavish Lashes, I have offered this service to my clientele. I am now working with the Somatic Wellness Massage Therapy and Salt Spa to offer eyelash extensions, facials and beauty and fashion consulting to their menu of services. I am now available to book appointments online at massagewv.com. I proudly use the Lavish Lashes products and offer a private and relaxing atmosphere for your beauty experience.
“There is nothing better than the feeling I get when watching a woman look into the mirror and smile at her transformation.” That feeling is what drives me to pay close attention to the specific needs of each client.
