Andrea has been in the cosmetics field with over 17 years experience working with makeup lines such as, BeneFit Cosmetics, Chanel, and Fusion Beauty. Her passion for makeup began when she had her first makeup lesson at the Benefit counter in Houston, TX.


At the age of 16, Andrea was hired by Benefit to work special events as a freelancer. She continued to grow with the company for 6 years, becoming a Business Manager & Trainer, but decided to focus more on Bridal/special occasion makeup and in 2007, FACEFORWARD Makeup & Tanning began.

Although we specialize in makeup application and skin care, FACEFORWARD Makeup & Tanning also offers on-location or in-studio makeup application lessons and customized Organic sunless tanning.


During consultations, we create a customized look for each client and provide instruction on how to keep makeup in place, looking clean and fresh for the duration of your special event.
