I am a Houston based photographer/cinematographer with 4 years experience. I'm always striving to improve. If I'm not shooting, editing, or watching The Big Bang Theory, I'm usually watching YouTube, Phlearn, or other photography videos. I've been fortunate enough to work on some bigger projects that include: MTV's Catfish: The TV Show and History Channel's Big Rig Bounty Hunters.
In April 2011, makeup artist Jentry Kelley boarded a plane from Texas to NYC to attend her first open house for a makeup manufacturer. It was after a simple comment in passing from a friend who said, "Why don't you have your OWN line of cosmetics?". In August 2011, after 5 short months, Jentry Kelley Cosmetics was born. Her point of difference was educating women on an application, helping them to achieve a flawless yet simple routine that can make them look 5-10 years younger. Every woman would want to have their own makeup artist. We just give you the tools and training to look as if you really do have one on the payroll!
Cori Aston was born and raised in Los Angeles, California and has always had a love affair with beauty & visual imagery! I knew from an early age that this would be my passion. At the age of 18, I began my journey into the beauty and skin care industry and for the next 25+ years, I've dedicated myself into developing a creative body of work in photo, editorial, runway, pageant, bridal, fantasy, professional headshots, brow specialist, educational seminars and private sessions. You can also see my craft in magazines, TV episodes, newscast segments and video.
I am a consummate professional whose personal goal is that every client is confident in my skills, my attention to detail and leaves feeling pampered, educated and glamorous!
As an artist, my passion never ceases... I continue to grow, learn, experience and educate myself about the latest in all areas of make-up & skin care products and techniques.
I have 2 beautiful sons & 4 dogs. I belong to several charities but I am most devoted to prevention of animal cruelty and I am a foster parent to rescued dogs.
Andrea has been in the cosmetics field with 15 years experience working with makeup lines such as BeneFit Cosmetics, Chanel, Fusion Beauty, and Jentry Kelley Cosmetics. Her passion for makeup began when she had her first makeup lesson at the Benefit counter in Houston, TX.
At the age of 16, Andrea was hired by Benefit to work special events as a freelancer. She continued to grow with the company for 6 years, becoming a Business Manager & Trainer, but decided to focus more on Bridal/special occasion makeup and in 2007, FaceForward Makeup & Tanning began.
Although we specialize in makeup application and skin care, FaceForward Makeup & Tanning also offers on-location or in-studio makeup application lessons and customized Organic sunless tanning.
During consultations, we create a customized look for each client and provide instruction on how to keep makeup in place, looking clean and fresh for the duration of your special event.
Hi there! Thank you for taking interest in me as your preferred artist for your special event. Here are a few things you should know about me and my make up history.
In 2006 I attended Royal Beauty Careers, gained a lot of knowledge of aesthetics, but not much on real-world makeup application. I was able to experiment with different looks and styles as a model. Family and friends added to my practice but it wasn't until I worked with other artists that my talent really started to grow, and still does.
Photographers I worked with began hiring me to do makeup and simple hairstyles on their models. Shortly after I met another artist who introduced me to the bridal industry. Since 2010 I've had the pleasure of working with brides all over Houston and surrounding areas. After many years of working for others, I took a leap and started my own company in 2016 and have several helping hands for big jobs!
My biggest accomplishments are in other projects outside of weddings such as, commercials for The Men's Warehouse, Converse, working as a makeup artist on TV show The Little Couple, Francesca's Online, YMCA, The Houston Chronicle, Labrada Nutrition, Ally Bank, Cameron INTL, FCCU and Brian Cushing of the Houston Texans, Simone Biles for Mattress Firm, and a number of local and national magazines.
