What Does It Take to Become a Successful Knoxville Makeup Artist?

When looking to do your wedding makeup in Knoxville, TN, look for Shante YuSlay, a Knoxville makeup artist who uses the client's face as the canvas. Shante uses makeup to transform and improve faces by correcting issues and imperfections and highlighting the positive attributes. Whether it entails applying prosthetics for theatrical production, perfecting the smoky eyes for that film or commercial shoot, or highlighting the cheekbones for that high-end cocktail event, this talented artist will be able to easily pull this off.

I made it to the top of Knoxville makeup artist for good reasons. Offering wedding makeup in the Knoxville TN area requires one with an eye for detail and a steady hand, the attitude of a perfectionist with application precision, and well-developed appreciation of color and blending. The tools that each artist uses may differ depending on the industry they work in, but either way, a cosmetic palette, and professional makeup brush set are a must for either.

My success as a successful Knoxville makeup artist can be credited to:


  • A deep passion for beautifying people

  • Being keen on the use of colors with an understanding of which colors look best for which individual.

  • A deep understanding of skin types and colors, and also the makeup ingredients.

  • Mastery of the makeup application techniques as per the setting, location, or event.

  • Patience and the ability to work under pressure with tact.

  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills.

Wedding makeup is different from regular makeup. Considering the fact that you will wear it and get photographed the entire day, choosing the right products and the perfect artist is very important. And since you should be ready one hour before the wedding ceremony, it is essential that the makeup artist is time-conscious and plans well ahead in time to avoid rushing through to get it done.
