Featured Make Up Artist of September 2014:
Courtney Hagen's love for the world of beauty started very early on when she first discovered Kevyn Aucoin's book, The Art of Makeup. He inspired her to make over anyone who would sit in front of her and she quickly fell in love with the power that makeup had to transform people both physically and emotionally. Eager to turn her passion into a career, she left her Midwest roots and made the move to California, where she attended the Empire Academy of Makeup to hone her skills as a professional makeup artist.
Courtney began her career in Los Angeles working for Urban Decay cosmetics, but it wasn't until she began to freelance on numerous editorial shoots, corporate videos, indie films, runway shows, and red carpet events, that she developed her own signature style as an artist. Her clean, understated beauty aesthetic combined with her down to earth attitude has clients coming back time and time again. Courtney's love and excitement for the beauty world is infectious and is instantly apparent to anyone who steps into her chair.
