I don’t believe in rules when it comes to makeup. I believe in looking timeless, powerful, and beautiful–in whatever way those words speak to you. I believe beauty comes in all ages, races, genders, and walks of life. I believe in the transformative power of makeup–not only the physical transformation, but the inner as well. Every person has something uniquely beautiful about them, and it is a privilege to help tap into that beauty and make it shine.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 15 years and we’ve been together for over 19! I am a proud military spouse (my husband plays Tuba in the Navy Band) and Mom to two wonderful, smart, and sassy kids, Stella & Henry. I am an avid runner, half marathoner, home baker (I will literally find any excuse to bake), and lover of all things chocolate. My family and I reside in Mundelein, Illinois.
PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE AND EDUCATION
I have been in the professional cosmetics industry for over 14 years and a freelance artist for 10 years. After wearing many hats working for Sephora, LUSH, and Nordstrom, in 2015 Rosie Hunter Artistry was launched after my family and I relocated with the Navy to Japan for 2.5 years. Upon relocating to Chicagoland in 2018, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Kate Johnson of Kate Johnson Artistry where I was made a lead artist on her award winning bridal team. Since then I have helped over 100 brides on their magical day, as well as countless bridesmaids and family members. Another area of styling I specialize in is boudoir hair & makeup, and I am incredibly lucky to work regularly a couple of local boudoir artists. Some of the images here are of me and my session with Sarah Jane Boudoir!
Enjoy these examples of my makeup looks. I'm confident in all makeup aesthetics from bridal to boudoir! Looking forward to working with you!
