Today we wanted to get a little personal and have you meet one of our esteemed Artists behind the scenes here at Team Image. Her Artist Page is Beauti by Ashley. May we introduce **round of applause** Ashley!
Hello I’m Ashley, SO nice to meet you!
I’m so excited that you have stopped by to be apart of our makeup adventures! I have such a heart for women to know how beautiful they are and desire to awaken and bring to life beauty from the inside out. As you view the awesome makeovers and photos realize that it’s so much more than just makeup application and glitz n glam!
I grew up in the industry with a mom who was a professional makeup artist and who worked for a Glamour Shots company. (anyone who grew up in the 90′s knows what Glamour shots are right – big hair, big boas, cowboy hats… the whole shebang). She had about 5 minutes per person for each full faced makeover and had to have the ladies foundation matched before they even sat in her chair. I watched her do this and many other events like; makeup for hair runway shows, wedding and photo shoots and began to pick up the skill since I was about 6 years old.
I didn’t realize it then, but hanging out with models and all this cool fashion was a pretty cool thing to be around and since my mom was a single mom, I got to experience so much and watch her on most of her on location makeup jobs. Also, after a life of being asked by friends to do their hair and makeup for special events (starting as young as middle school) I began to let the love of beauty and makeup artistry flourish in me and accept it as my love and calling.
By 14 when I was a freshman in highschool when mom founded a performance makeup company that I began working with and started applying makeup at live events. The company is called “Team Image Makeup Made Easy” – a specialty Performance Makeup company. I started working and doing administrative work during the week and then on the weekends would do shows that involved setting up booths to do makeovers at cheer and dance competitions. I had to be quick on my feet and able to create custom eye designs for each client.
After highschool I attended Florida College of Natural Health and earned my A.S. Degree in Paramedical Skin Care and State of FL Facial Specialist License. After pursuing a career as an Esthetician that then turned into a few years later into a love for Makeup Artistry and what I grew up with came around full circle and now am loving what I do more than anything. To prepare the Bride for her wedding day is such an honor and dream to do!
Makeup Artistry and Skin Care is a constantly changing field and definitely keeps me on my toes. I love what I do and I hope to encourage all those I meet along the way!
After moving away for a few years after college I found myself back in FL again and started to pursue a serious career with Team Image. My heart and soul goes into this business and love seeing it flourish among all the many things this business is capable of doing! On top of that this year is our 10th year in business, woo hoo! So amazing now that I’m older having the respect I do for what my Mom has done to start such an mazing company from the ground up!
At the heart and core of this business, We Are Family and we will always keep it that way!
Happy Glitz n Glam to you!
