After graduating from Chico State with a degree in Studio Art, my first job out of school was as a makeup artist for CHANEL cosmetics. While learning on the job with Chanel, I also attended makeup school to solidify my technique, learn airbrushing, and become a certified artist. I worked as a full time freelance artist in Los Angeles for over five years, and had the adventures of working on a fascinating PBS series, hectic award shows, photoshoots on beachy cliffsides, and the earliest of early KTLA morning show. Not to mention- countless weddings!!
     I now live in Santa Barbara with my fiance and two sweet cats, painting watercolors in my spare time. I’m available for on-location services including photo shoots, television/film, head shots, corporate events, bridal makeup and special events in Santa Barabra, LA, and across southern California.

“Joelle is an exceptional make-up artist with an outstanding personality to match. Her priority is always to provide the best look for her clients and to not only have you look great but also know that she cares about the quality of her work. She provides an extensive collection of make-up for all skin types and consistently delivers impressive results every time. Joelle is always on-time, professional, gets the job done and without a doubt is one of the best make-up artists I have worked with in television. ”
