My Career

Ky Washington

It all started when I was a little girl. My mom would take me to the beauty salon and I was fascinated by the amazing creations I saw there.

I also noticed the “pep” in the step, the confidence, and the glamour women felt leaving the salon and I wanted to be part of that magic.

So off I went to study at the Aveda Institute (specializing in makeup for the mature client) and The Artistry Beauty Institute. I also decided to further my training and work with a master hairstylist.
Then I was trained and mentored by celebrity makeup artist Jeanine Lobell (founder of Stila Cosmetics and makeup artist of Michelle Williams, Cate Blanchett, and Natalie Portman).

And then what? Well, I literally dabbled in every genre of the makeup and hair world until I realized my passion, Big Moments. I could get someone ready for a huge TV interview or show them how to finally apply their eyeliner correctly. Either way, it’s a big moment. This is what I want to share with you.

My clients range from TV stations and On-Air talent, to world leaders, and Corporate Giants, a bride on her big day, and a woman taking my makeup class for the first time. All Big Moments and equally important to me. Over a decade into my career I hope to make all your Big Moments exactly as you envisioned. Thanks for stopping by.
