Breanna Leigh, born and raised slightly north of Boston, received her first taste of working as a makeup artist while attending the University of Massachusetts. With working three jobs, she came in contact with many diverse people, some of which requested she do their makeup because they liked the way Breanna did her own. Having a demand for services, but lacking knowledge, Breanna took time away from UMASS and attended Elizabeth Grady School of Esthetics for their makeup artistry program. Never leaving her ambitions for a degree behind, she went back to UMASS and soon obtained her Bachelors of Science in Marketing and Entrepreneurship.
Breanna continued to refine her makeup artist skills with taking advanced artistry classes in New York under the Makeup Forever Academy and from top artists like James Vincent and Senior Artists from MAC Cosmetics.
Her training has been heavily focused on film/TV, editorial, and runway. She has worked with Olivia Culpo and models found on America’s Next Top Model. As well, she has worked for actresses attending the Red Carpet event for the Tribeca Film Festive, local fashion shows for Boston designers, and jewelry lines.
With her experience in the industry, she’s been able to bring those skills to her bridal and traditional beauty clientele. She specialized in skin that is red carpet ready and accentuating the client’s version of their perfect self.
Currently residing in Atlanta, Breanna is working on a pilot TV show, focused on combining editorial makeup with fantasy and low budget SAG films. She can also be found doing editorial work for models signed to agencies such as Ursula Wiedmann Models, Click, Ultimate Model, and Salt.
