From her earliest memories, Brianna has always been drawn to beauty and glamour, enjoying playing dress up and trying on mom’s makeup and clothes to play with different beautiful looks in the mirror!
Graduating with a BA from Columbia College in Broadcast Journalism, Brianna started her career on radio as a weather announcer, followed by production and on air work at Louisville’s FOX affiliate WDRB- TV, then working in production for Harpo Studios, aka The Oprah Winfrey Show, in Chicago. She has also been cast as lead in local and national TV commercials showcasing her natural ability to connect with people thru the camera lens.
Brianna left broadcasting to pursue her passion for glamour and beauty in the colorful world of makeup artistry. She has worked for nationally recognized beauty brands such as Chanel, Stila Cosmetics and the eco-friendly, Aveda Cosmetics to educate and share with clients that “you too can find your personal style through makeup!” She has worked with celebrities and an exclusive clientele at the diamond award winning hotel and spa in Chicago, styling her clients with her unique, makeup artistry with Becca Cosmetics. She has also showcased her makeup skills at various fashion shows such as Betsy Johnson and most recently for Christian Siriano, Project Runway’s Season 4 Winner, at a charity event for the Humane Society.
Brianna enjoys keeping herself on the leading edge of all the latest excitement in makeup trends. Currently, she is taking a new approach to beauty and style with her website, MAKEUPMINUTES.COM. “It’s my special place where I can share my excitement and ideas about beauty, confidence and the celebrity aspects of makeup.”
Being a victim of bullying at a young age, and overcoming a weight problem, Brianna hopes to show thru education and empowerment for all women, that beauty truly comes from having confidence within.
Her website consists of video tutorials, product reviews, education and interacting with her visitors. ”By sharing my personal experiences, and my knowledge in the beauty industry, I hope to offer value, excitement and confidence to women of all ages by bridging the gap from makeup artist to client.”
“Brianna’s passion for beauty and fashion is infectious”, said a friend, “Her inner beauty comes alive when you see her…you cannot fail, but to fall in love with her. “
