Makeup By Kiley Smith

Kiley Smith specializes in natural radiant makeup for discerning clientele. It was during these years that I discovered my true passion – the art of makeup.

I'm a professional makeup artist based in Fairfax, Virginia, with over 18 years of experience. My journey in the creative arts began on the stage, performing in musical theatre productions in the NYC/NJ area from a young age. My university years from 2001 to 2005 were dedicated to honing my makeup artistry skills for beauty, bridal, stage, film, and TV. In 2005, I embarked on my professional caree

Thank you for entrusting me with your wonderful client, Katie, a new mom to the prettiest baby girl. I thoroughly enjoyed pampering her and preparing her for her photoshoot.

Hello there! It's been a little while since my last "get to know me" post, so I figured it's time for a reintroduction.

I'm Kiley, and I've been a makeup artist for over 18 years. I specialize in natural radiant artistry. You can find me in the DMV area (DC/MD/VA), where I offer makeup services for various occasions, including weddings, events, film, television, and editorial shoots. I also love teaching makeup lessons and offering personalized shopping sessions.

But there's more to the artist behind the brushes. I'm a proud mother of two amazing children, aged 17 and 12. My miniature poodle, Hermes, is another member of our lively household, and I've been happily married to my wonderful husband for 20 years.

Now, let me share some fun tidbits you might not know about me:

-I grew up along the picturesque shores of New Jersey.

-I've raised funds for the American Foundation for Su***de Prevention in loving memory of my mother. Mental health and su***de awareness are causes very close to my heart.

-Antique hunting was a part of my upbringing as I traveled with my grandparents, helping them find treasures for my grandmother's store in New Jersey. This experience instilled in me a love for all things romantic, timeless, and classic.

-Lifelong learning is a passion of mine, both as a person and as a makeup artist.

-I started small; I was only 2 lbs. when I was born.

-Being the oldest of four siblings has given me a wealth of experiences.

-I'm an enthusiastic admirer of the Danish Royal Family.

-Back in the day, I trod the boards as a musical theater actress.

Stay tuned for more insights and makeup magic as we journey together!

In that new world which is the old.

One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is witnessing the moment when my clients see themselves in a new light after a lesson or application with me. What I love most about these experiences is having heart-to-heart conversations with them, discussing the unique qualities that make each of us beautiful. While makeup can certainly enhance our outer beauty, it's the inner beauty that truly radiates and makes our outer beauty shine.
