Im Montique...a professional freelance makeup artist who specializes in creating flawless skin with neutral tones that enhances one's natural beauty. Based in Baltimore, Maryland, I am a traveling artist who loves to travel throughout the DMV area and beyond to service my clients. Unlike many other beauty enthusiasts, I didn't grow up playing in my mother’s makeup. It was my love of fashion that propelled me into the industry. After participating in many high school and college fashion shows, my passion for makeup artistry was ignited after my first time stepping into a MAC store; a brand that remains a staple in my kit today.
Professionally trained and licensed, I have over 12 years of experience in the beauty industry. My makeup artistry career began at the Von Lee School of Aesthetics in Baltimore where I became a licensed makeup artist in 2008. I continued my professional training in skincare and makeup application with Lancôme, and Estée Lauder subsidiaries Clinique and MAC and have worked personally with hundreds of women, men, skin tones, skin types, and facial shapes. These experiences have developed my talent for creating looks that photograph beautifully AND look natural in person. While I love creating unique looks for photo shoots and ad-hoc events of every kind, I have developed a true love and passion for elegant, classic, bridal makeup.
While makeup artistry began as a hobby, Jaded Beauty was birthed after the untimely loss of my mother and best friend, who in 2010 lost her battle to liver cancer. Overwhelmed with unexpected emotions, anger and disbelief, I found peace through pursuing my passion of making others look and feel more beautiful than they already are. The look on my clients faces when they see themselves in the mirror completely fills my heart and adds purpose to why I do what I do.
