TAGLINE: Accentuating Your Natural Beauty
BLOGGING SINCE: 2015
FOCUS & NICHE: I have a passion for supporting independent small businesses and researching non-toxic, one-of-a kind specially curated beauty products. I enjoy educating preteen and young women on natural beauty routines and love utilizing products in beauty & skincare routines that accentuate women’s natural beauty. I strive to use naturally formulated, non-toxic, products that are overall safer for the body and our environment. At this time I only use products and work with brands who are paraben-free, sulfate-free, sulfite-free, synthetic fragrance-free, latex-free lash glue, mainly vegan, phthalate free, and free of retinol and retin-a. I also prefer make-up that has a 4 or less rating on EWG.
BLOG READERSHIP: My readers include previous clients–brides and wedding parties, and make-up lesson clients who are either pre-teens, college graduates, working women, and moms. My audience is a mix of young and mature women who are familiar or curious about learning more about natural beauty routines and natural products.
When I was a young girl, I told my family that I was going to be a makeup artist when I grew up. Putting my dream on the back burner, I went to college and became an educator. I enjoyed teaching, but longed to express my artistic creativity outside of the classroom and work for myself. I started out applying makeup on friends and then applying makeup for special events, and soon after, I branched out into the wedding world and got my professional start as a bridal makeup artist with one of the D.C.'s premier bridal teams of multi-ethnic on-site makeup and hair artists. In 2009, I founded The Natural Makeup Chic, an on-site boutique makeup service and as my business grew and in 2015 I started The Natural Makeup Chic Blog. I continue to serve as owner, manager, and head artist.
What I enjoy most about makeup is being able to look at someone’s face and see how it could be enhanced with makeup. It’s extremely satisfying when a client loves her makeup, or when, because of a makeup enhancement, she presents as the best version of herself and radiates confidence. I have a passion for supporting small businesses and researching non-toxic, one-of-a kind specially curated beauty products, and helping clients find beauty products that fit their lifestyle and needs.
More about my experience…I’ve done makeup with top production companies and photographers for corporate advertising photo and video shoots. My makeup work can be seen on billboards and print ads in D.C. and Virginia, as well as TV and online. I’ve also had the pleasure of coordinating and overseeing hundreds of weddings, and contracting with countless talented professional hair artists and assistants, assembling the best teams for my clients. In 2017, I co-founded Clean Beauty Artists, a small hand-selected team of makeup and hair artists who only use natural and health-focused products.
When I am not applying makeup, you can find me cooking or planning an adventure with my musician husband, spending time with our adorable son, Erik, and going to dinner with friends.

"Suzanne, This is incredible! Thank you so much and your photos are beautiful!" - Marketing Director
“Hi! Goodmorning! I love your Instagram feed:) I bought the eyelid balm from Whole Foods that you recommended... life changing!” - Engaged Consumer
“I love this! I'd never shopped in Whole Foods for beauty products and picked up the Seaweed Bath Co. Detox Body Wash and tried Dr. Hauschka's line for the first time. LOVE THEM BOTH. The body wash smells AMAZING. It's overwhelming to start to 'clean' up your beauty routine and make-up bag and your post was super informative and helpful. Thanks!!” - Engaged Consumer
“This is a great post. I get so overwhelmed with all the choices and it gets expensive when you go in blind and experiment with different brands and products. It's nice to have some guidance in this department. I'm super excited to try all these products, but most excited about the eye balm. I've been searching for a good eye cream, that's natural, for years!. Going to pick these up tomorrow. Thanks!” - Engaged Consumer
