My name is Annētta. (pronounced like Anita...long story..thanks mom)
I am a mother to three incredible little boys who have me completely wrapped around their tiny fingers. I am married to their father, Jordan, the love of my life. My career in makeup didn't happen by chance, it was fate. I studied journalism and broadcasting in collage and shortly after, I worked in Radio as an on air talent personality as well as Emceed my towns local sports. It wasn't until I suffered from adult acne in my twenties that my passion for skin and beauty truly came. I decided to leave my fun, celebrity filed and highly lucrative career in radio to pursue my passion for the bridal and beauty industry... I am happy to say that giving it over to God and taking the leap of faith was one of the greatest decisions of my life.
I am now a licensed Esthetician, professional celebrity and special event traveling makeup artist, the owner and founder of "Haute Bridal Official" Couture Bridal Gown Boutique,"Haute The Luxe Beauty House" luxury salon, "Beauty On The Terrace at Haute Bridal Official", "the collection" cosmetics clean beauty and tool line, and the proud founder of the non-profit, the "815 Makeover Movement".
Giving back and making a difference in the world is a major part of who I am. It is important to me to use any platform that I am given to give back to the world in anyway I can. To me, my career in makeup artistry means so much more than just applying makeup. It is an opportunity for God to use me to spread His love. I believe that true beauty comes from within and that God doesn't make mistakes. That being said, I do not use makeup as a mask. It is simply a way to accentuate the features that He has given us. It is a way to show our creativity. The joy that I feel when my client looks at them self and cannot help but to smile from ear to ear is indescribable. My goal is to not only help my clients feel beautiful after the makeup application, but more importantly... before it.
It is an honor to be considered to be a part of so many special moments and events in so many lives.
Whether you are booking with my team from bridal, attending one of my makeup and/or leadership events, visiting one of my salons, saying YES to your dream dress with me, purchasing my products...whatever it may be, it is an honor.
From my family to yours...Thank you.
