The CWGIII Makeup Experience



All of my work is based on the art of making you look radiant. Makeup Artistry is truly an art form, and it took years of experience before I decided to take that leap, and start my own business. Since then, I have been transforming my clients in North West Ohio/ South East Michigan into absolutely stunning art. I am passionate about what I do, and love to share my passion for Make Up with my clients.
