• Announcement: Availability For 2017 & 2018 | Chasing the Dream

    11 Sep 2017

  • So I rarely ever blog about personal matters here on the Makeup by Keria Beauty Blog!

    Most of my past and some future clients know that I have been a full-time social worker. A few weeks ago I gave my resignation with the foster care agency I have been working with for the past five years, and this past Friday was my last day. I hate goodbyes and letting go of something that I was so passionate about. I never saw myself leaving honestly but at the same time not leaving only prevents growth. I have met a lot of amazing people along my five years working in foster care. Some of them to have come and gone. My life is more than working 50-60 hours a week in a system that I couldn’t change by myself.  A good friend of my husband and I always encouraged me to jump into makeup full-time, and after his passing, I started to feel the fire of pursuing more than the stressful environment that I was in. This choice was not an easy one as I waited a year before I decided to take this jump. I’m going to miss the families and co-workers that turned into friends and honestly family. At the same time, I will now be able to give my business the full attention that it and my clients deserve. I can’t wait to jump in and have the free time to attend more makeup workshops and bridal shows!

    So here is the next chapter of my life.
    Full-time makeup artist, adventurer, and dreamer.

  • About the Artist

    I'm the makeup artist and owner of Makeup by Keria.
    I started doing makeup in 2010 in fashion and modeling. I moved into the wedding makeup in 2013 and fell in love. I'm a sucker for wedding days and all the emotional moments around it. I love helping the bride fulfill her dream wedding and making her look flawless for her big day! I've been married to my husband Westley for over 10 years and he happens to be a wedding photographer. We enjoy working with one another but when we have separate weddings we also enjoy telling the bride's big day over dinner.


    I'm great under the pressures of the big day's timeline and make the bride my focus. I have a degree in social work that I have used to help some brides ease their anxieties while also relaxing them while they are in my chair getting their makeup completed.
    I'm an easy going person and put others forward and I can't wait to talk to you about your big day! <3
