The CM Experience


TEAm Portfolios




Position : Makeup Artist

Language : English

Beauty Background : I’ve been in the industry for 19 years! I started working in salons and department stores at cosmetic counters before makeup was “cool”. I started at MAC Cosmetics in 2008, where I worked with brilliant trainers/artists from whom I gained great knowledge. I went on to become the Field Sales and Education Executive for the Mid-Atlantic for Anastasia Beverly Hills, and later Charlotte Tilbury. I now manage operations for the CM Pro team and am loving being a full-time freelance artist and having more time to spend with my family. Freelancing has always been my creative outlet, and nothing gives me more joy & satisfaction than prepping someone for their special day. Whether it’s a wedding or any other occasion, I love making each person in my chair feel amazing. I want them walking away looking like themselves & feeling confident, beautiful and empowered!

Highlight of my career : I would say the highlight of my career is that I’m able to be apart of so many peoples most important moments of their lives! I love seeing everything come together and giving a memorable experience.

Current favorite bridal trends : Fluffy brows, hydrated glowing skin, flirty lashes, intensified neutral colors.​

Top three products/tools I can’t live without : Brow product, eyeliner, and lashes!​

Guilty pleasures : I’m obsessed with my 5 year old son! I love being a mommy. I also love binge watching every Real housewife franchise...


I believe that my strength is making it all about you.


Whether you need a cheerleader, a champion, or a calming presence,
my goal is to ensure you to leave my chair feeling powerful, confident,
and, most of all, like a more elevated version of yourself!

aka Tay

She is ALWAYS on time, always prepared and always pleasant. She is also very fun and keeps everyone comfortable and relaxed while they are being serviced.

You’ll feel like you're having your makeup done by one of your good girlfriends, but when she finishes, you’ll be runway ready.

“Kiaté is the consummate professional.”

but she is the best at giving you a glamorous look that will last all day — without fail. 

She’s undoubtedly the best, and I can’t wait to use her again.

“ Tay not only has amazing customer service in regards to being timely, clean, professional and efficient...”

Not only was she early, but the spirit that came with her was so peaceful. She literally kept a smile on my face the entire time. Honestly, she was more than a makeup artist that day she was my peace, and her creativity and professionalism is unmatched.

“Tay did both me and my wife's makeup for our wedding.”

She was very easy to work with, very attentive to their needs which varied and was very accommodating when my sister asked for specific touch ups etc. They all looked so beautiful and their makeup lasted all night! 

“Tay did an excellent job with my bridesmaids and my mother-in-law’s makeup.”
