About Radiant Makeup Artistry
It all started 20 years ago when two little blonde haired, blue eyed sisters went over to a friend’s house to play.
The three little girls took turns doing each other’s makeup (which consisted of blue eye shadow and a mound of red lipstick). The two sisters made their friend look even more radiant than she already was (although it may be argued that such a thing is not difficult to do on a 5-year-old). In exchange, the friend attempted to make up the younger sister in the same fashion; however, what she produced was a circus show short of a clown. The little sister looked ridiculous with big red lipstick circles on her cheeks and blue eye shadow all over her face. As the friend laughed hysterically at what she had done to the little sister, the big sister took her younger sisters hand, told the friend off, and marched home to wipe away her little sister's make up and tears. The sisters did not know it then, but certainly understand it now: make up application is an art and that art has the power to transform and bring out the natural radiance that has been within all along.
The little girls in the story are of course the founders of Radiant Makeup Artistry, Rachel Smith and Rebecca (Smith) Twomey. They formed Radiant Makeup Artistry with one simple mission: to bring out your natural radiance through the art of makeup.
