Hi! I'm Kierra Lanice.

I am a freelance makeup artist currently based in Houston, TX.

Born and raised in Lansing, MI, after graduating from the Douglas J Aveda Institute in 2012, I went on to pursue my love for makeup as a career. My first job in the beauty industry was with Estee Lauder Companies where I learned to work with a diverse clientele and the art building relationships.  Since then, my work has been found in esteemed magazines such as Vogue Online, on red carpets for The Grammy's and The BET Awards, and campaigns for The Colored Girl Inc. x MAKE UP FOR EVER, City Girl Curlz and Aj Crimson Beauty.

I consider myself a makeup maven that strives to deliver excellence, authenticity and care for those who I am honored with serving. My knowledge and skills in makeup artistry have been known to work hand in hand with my keen ability to inspire others to look, feel and be their very best. Whether it be for commercial work, a private event or for a bride’s big day, I pride myself on my professional approach and ability to enhance each person’s individual beauty.

In addition to makeup artistry, I’m the Client Concierge for The Couture Agency where I liaise daily with top-tier publications on behalf of independent fashion, beauty, and lifestyle brands.
