Well hello there! Thank you so much for stopping by. I am a makeup artist, beauty enthusiast, educator, skincare junkie and entrepreneur based in Richmond, VA. (I travel too!)  I would describe my artistic style as clean, fresh, and timeless. I truly believe that makeup should enhance not change your beautiful features. I focus heavily on skincare because I believe it sets the foundation for the entire makeup I application.  Some of my favorite makeup artists who I have trained with and ADORE include MaliMagic, Danessa Myricks, and Sam Fine.

I LOVE people and I strive to create a personal connection and leave a lasting positive impact with each beautiful soul that graces my makeup chair. I can't wait to meet you!

About Candice
(The Confidence Curator)

From the very first moment I spoke with Candice on the phone, to the very last moment she sent me off all glammed up as I went off to my “first look”, she was amazing!!! Candice was patient with me and all of my bridesmaids as we explained what we wanted done. She was friendly, kind, outgoing, and made every single girl feel confident and beautiful. I showed a picture to Candice of what I envisioned for my bridal makeup and the result was spot on. Candice presented me with a little surprise gift bag filled with a few full size products that she used on me throughout the day. Thank you Candice for making my wedding dreams come true!


Candice was wonderful! She made my bridesmaids and I so comfortable throughout her entire process. We met at a bridal show and instantly became friends! She is such a sweetheart. Our makeup was AMAZING! I would choose her over and over again! Thank you, Candice for making me look BOMB on our wedding day
