Hey! I'm Kim Elba
A makeup artist, entrepreneur, philanthropist, a girlie girl that loves everything sparkly.
First I would like to say thank you very much for shopping on my site. I'm truly grateful and I hope you will find it a happy and joyful experience.
My career in the makeup artistry field started many moons ago:-) I graduated with highest honors from the acclaimed "International Makeup Academy" in Europe. Shortly after graduating, I was extremely fortunate to get a smooth start into the industry and landed jobs with prestigious companies such as BBC and Columbia Tristar. I gained an incredible amount of knowledge, not only about makeup but the industry as a whole. No amount of thanks could ever be enough for the ones that gave me a chance and took me under their wings.
Later on I went back to further educate myself and received a Diploma with highest honors in continued education of makeup artistry and in addition to that also studied cosmetology and esthetics.
The question that I get the most,
is which celebrities have I
I have been truly blessed with working with some of the worlds most talented actors and musicians. Such as....Hugh Laurie, Geena Davis, Jenna Redgrave, TLC's Chilli, Lyfe Jennings, Nigel Havers, Idris Elba and the late Robin Williams to name just a few.
What do I enjoy the most
about doing makeup
Makeup is a very powerful tool! Most woman do not like to be seen without it, or will apply the basics such as mascara or lipstick/gloss before leaving home. I remember one time in particular, I was going to an event and when I got there, I realized that I had left my lipstick at home. It ruined my whole evening as I kept thinking it would come off while eating and drinking and there was no way I would be able to reapply. That's how much makeup means to a lot of us.
Having spent so many years in the industry, it still never ceases to amaze me what can be achieved with makeup.
Applying it on someone as cliche as it might sound, is like a painter starting with a new canvas. Anything is possible.
What made me start
my own makeup line
After years in the industry people began to ask me questions such as...do you have your own makeup line or when will you be launching a makeup line? The subject kept popping up and it made me decide, that since I had actively started to scale back on doing makeup, it was perfect timing. My goal is to make every woman feel beautiful and if I can achieve that with my makeup line, then I have achieved what I set out to do.
I have never applied makeup to a face
that I didn't see beauty in. Every face possess it's own unique beauty
