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. I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area and spent the last 33 years of my life there before my husband and I decided to make the move to the West Coast in 2022. I am excited to see what the future has in store for us Las Vegas, LA and beyond, but don't worry hometown, you can't get rid of me that easy!

 

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, the proud founder of the non-profit, the "815 Makeover Movement" and now, my very own podcast " The Insanely Annētta Show" created to make space for women and mothers in leadership, a safe space to talk about the challenges we face and a space to explore out faith. Being able to incorporate my love for makeup and microphones feels too good to be true, yet, here we are and I am so grateful.

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 and broadcasting means so much more than just applying makeup and talking into a microphone. It is an opportunity for God to use me to spread His word and His love. I only hope you all see Him in me and I can get out of His way.

 

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 and the joy that I feel when my client looks at them self and cannot help but to smile from ear to ear, well, it's indescribable.

 

My mission is to incorporate a modern beauty, fashion, and entertainment experience paired with a passion for giving back love to all I encounter...

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 interested in booking me for your next red carpet event, for an empowering speaking engagement at your next event, to review your products or collaborations, your wedding events, 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. and more..whatever it may be, it is an honor. 

From my family to yours...Thank you.
