Wendy Brown

Professional Makeup Artist

With nearly 20 yrs professional makeup and hair design experience, I always strive for perfection using the latest information on skin and hair care and product integrity. I specialize in the “no makeup” makeup look for a clean natural-beauty look. It is important to me that you look and feel your best self. Our makeup sessions are not about my aesthetic, though, it is about creating your signature look.

About Me

I started getting interested makeup when my husband and I opened a theatrical attraction in 2000…then and there I fell in love with special effects makeup and costume design.

I began to study and practice various specialty makeup techniques including those for airbrush application, HD production and character art.

Eventually, my reputation as an accomplished makeup artist pulled me into the world of film and television, and as they say in the business, “I got the bug.”

With a passion for learning, I continued my study of makeup at High Definition Makeup University and Stan Winston School of Character Design.

I have done both makeup and costuming for television shows such as MSNBC, American Titans, Nightmare Next Door, Saved, Farm Story, Time Machine Guitar, Riggo on the Range, Machinery of Dreams and Ted Talks and for non-broadcast television such as Wells Fargo Corporation, Lowe’s Home Improvement, CFA Institute, Hilton Hotels, WeddingWire, The Knot, Square, and National Gypsum.

I have had the pleasure of doing makeup for celebrities such as Chris Cooper, Adrian Pasdar, Ruth Connell, Alice Coulthard, Boris McGiver, Zepher Benson, Alex Wolfe, Stefania Owen, Eric Nelsen, Mark Singer, Art LaFluer, Haley Dumond, Paul McGill, John Riggins, and Ralph Covert.

I love working on news broadcast and documentaries, as well and have worked with Jeff Flake, Ted Cruz, Hallie Jackson, Joy Reid, Kelly Ann Conway, Tim Kaine, and Andrea Mitchell.

As an accomplished special effects makeup artist, prosthetic and mask creator, my work has been featured in several horror films such as Machinery of Dreams, House Hunting, Josephine, Danger*Zombie*Run, Lullaby, In the Book, and Coming Through the Rye.

I love playing with my family and friends. I’m a people person! I am into gardening, forest foraging, political activism, yoga, meditation, dancing, live music and renovating old houses. I’m also a hoop dancing enthusiast!
