About Kayla Maree
Hello! My name is Kayla Heffington, I am a full time travelling bridal makeup artist! I also do makeup for other events such as Halloween, prom, photoshoots, etc. on the side.
I started doing makeup ever since I could remember. I basically taught myself everything! I would create makeup videos in my room all day and all night long. I started doing makeup on others for my cousins wedding! It was such an honor, I loved the feeling of making someone feel so beautiful (even though I believe everyone is beautiful with or without makeup)… it always feels nice to be glammed up once in a while!
I am 23 years old, located in Dowagiac, MI where I grew up. I did move around a little bit while growing up, to a couple different states, but Michigan is just home to me. I have a daughter, Azalea Elizabeth, who passed away shortly after being diagnosed with a heart defect. Everything I do is to honor her. I've always been the type of person to put 100% into everything I have any sort of interest in, but now (especially since I am already passionate about makeup) I feel like I have been more passionate than ever before.
Some fun facts about me: I am addicted to green tea, I like to clean...most of the time...I use to be a dance teacher, but I also am extremely clumsy which almost makes no sense, and I LOVE the fall & Christmas time :) When I am not doing makeup I love to work out, spend time with my family, my boyfriend and my animals! I also play Call of Duty Warzone a lot lol.
I take great honor when someone chooses me to do their makeup on such a special day. I try my best to give each bride an amazing experience. I prep the skin with a dermatologist approved skin care routine based on skin type, taking the extra steps ensures your makeup look to last throughout the day! I also give each bride a goodie bag that includes a touch up kit for the rest of the night!
If you have any questions about me, and what I do, please do not hesitate to message me! I'd love to chat.
