Keisha Kerr Make-up Artist
My name is Keisha Kerr. I am a makeup artist for film, TV, bridal and corporate businesses. I am currently expanding my brand into beauty products this 2020.I originally started out as a business administrator and while working in that industry I felt the life being sucked out of me each day. As stable as it was for my two children, and I, I had a strong sense that there was something else meant for me.I started out by gathering a couple friends and doing makeup on them (which took me 2 hours) then got a friend of mine who was into photography at the time to take pictures of them. I posted these images to a popular website for photographers, makeup artists, models and hairstylist hoping to get a call back. I crossed my fingers and said a prayer! I wanted this to be my career SO bad I just needed to get my foot in the door.Shortly after, I received a message from a makeup artist who needed some assistance with an upcoming wedding. She asked me if I would be interested in joining her team. I was SO EXCITED to get a paying gig (I honestly love doing it so much I would’ve done my first one for free!)
The first booking was fast paced, nerve-wracking, scary and exciting all at once. I took my time doing their make-up because I wanted them to look perfect!
