Color matters and makeovers
I work for Mac Cosmetics at Park Meadows. It is a phenomenal brand and I basically get to play all day. I get to transform people. I get to bring out the beauty of the person from the inside and put it on the outside. It all depends on the client. I kind of find myself either going very natural and bringing out what people already have or doing a high-fashion, intense look. I am inspired by the ‘80s era; I love color.
I haven’t told too many people, but I just started making YouTube videos. I do makeup tutorials and reviews. I am investing in professional lighting, editing, sound and imaging gear. It is a saturated industry right now and there are a lot of people who do what I am trying to do. I have a competitive edge and will bring something new that is not already there. I want to start up an empire. What makes the cosmetic industry what it is today is having so many individuals. My style is very laid-back. I really want to connect with people. I don’t want to be seen as somebody untouchable. I want to relate on a personal level to my viewers. I am really goofy and make mistakes, so I will put that in my videos. My YouTube channel is the same as my Instragram. It is Chelly Artistry on YouTube and ChellyArtistry on Instagram. I’ll have something up in the next month.
Music and lyrics
Music is my life. I started singing when I was two years old. I would stand on the back of my family’s pickup truck in parking lots and sing to people who walked by. I started writing my own music and recently got a ukulele. I’m in love with the fact that I can encourage and inspire people with what I write and what I play. I am actually working with a producer in Los Angeles to get some of my work recorded.
