Make your special day beautiful. Achieve the look you want with make up by an experianced makeup artist.

My name is Mikayla Anderson. I have worked in the makeup industry for five years professionally and am also a certified Skincare Expert through Sephora Inc. I love everything about makeup and the idea that I can help bring forward ones favorite features and help draw attention away from a feature someone may not be in love with. Makeup for me is fun and a way to help bring out ones character and personality. I enjoy using makeup with different levels of coverage for a natural day look all the way to the other end of the spectrum for a fantasy look.

I have worked with just about every type of makeup from airbrush to cream and powder. I use makeup that will not clog the pores but can still provide a flawless finish. My two personal favorite foundation brands to work with are Cover FX and Temptu because of their many different consistency’s and their skincare benefits. I have had the opportunity to work with brands such as: Make Up For Ever, Stila, Sephora, Benefit, Temptu, Bare Minerals, Lorac, Lancome, Dior, Smashbox, Laura Mercier, Ben-Nye, Cover FX, Clinique , Anastasia, Fresh, NARS, Tarte, Too Faced and Yves Saint Laurent. I have had the opportunity to receive training from brand representatives as well throughout the years both at the Sephora Inc headquarter in San Francisco and in Los Angeles.


I offer day of services for proms, photo shoots, theatre, and special events. Same day services generally take 1-2 hours depending on how simple or creative the look. I am always open to making and changes to a look to achieve the perfect look. I also offer wedding services and wedding packages for bridal and groom parties with consultations. During consultations we take a look at themes, time of day, location, and the bridal dress to make sure the brides look goes perfectly with the wedding. I also ask for pictures of the bridal party to make sure the bridesmaid’s makeup is cohesive with the brides wedding theme. I can also offer a touch of coverage for the men even if it just powder to keep the groom from getting a shiny face, after all the pictures and memories last forever! I also offer tutorials for those who want to learn to create a look for themselves. I can do tutorials for individuals or groups of friends that what to learn to create a few looks. I travel the Central Coast and San Luis Obispo County, if I am traveling less than thirty miles I do not charge a traveling fee.


Recently, Mikayla did the makeup for my niece and my sister for niece Kristin's wedding. They both looked stunning, perfect for the time of day and the occasion! My sister looked 10 years younger, and I know Kristen was thrilled with the results of her makeup session as well. I would highly recommend Mikayla to anyone who needs the perfect makeup treatment for their special occasion.... Donna

I wanted to let you know that I absolutely LOVED LOVED LOVED my makeup for the wedding. I know that my bridesmaids did as well. Thank you for taking so much time to make sure we all looked our best. Also, my mom received so many compliments on how she looked...and I think that was due, in large part, to the great job you did on her makeup. I will certainly recommend you to anyone I know looking for a makeup artist. Thanks again for everything! We really appreciated your flexibility and willingness to help out to make everything run smoothly! I was very impressed with you and your amazing makeup talent!
