Annie Lam

Owner, Senior Bridal Makeup & Hair Artist, Certified Makeup/Hair Instructor & Licensed Cosmetologist

As a makeup enthusiast turned premiere beauty professional, I am a self-acclaimed "perfectionist." Being self-taught to begin my career, it's this self-starter attitude and drive that I believe has made my clients identify with my unique and detailed service experience. After graduating with a Master's of Science in Immunology, I knew in my heart that I was destined for a more fulfilling career in the beauty industry to feed my creative side, although, I still have a love for science. With my knowledge of science and internal human mechanisms, I knew that I had a unique angle towards presenting all things beauty and skincare "inside and out." The mission of my company is my core belief, and my sincerest desire is to help every client that sits in my chair identify with their own personal beauty and be able to teach them to emanate that to the world around them.

Annie has traveled to places like Taiwan, Hong Kong, New York, Los Angeles, Miami and Texas to increase her beauty education and keep her skill sets current. She has studied with various makeup artists in the stage, wedding, and movie industries on a one-on-one basis, so that she could bring that knowledge and application technique to her clients.

Nakia Hope

Professional Makeup Artist & Licensed Esthetician

Makeup is my passion! I have been doing makeup since high school. I took my passion forward with different makeup and skin care classes to improve my skills. I am a licensed esthetician. I have been part of The Makeup Movement team since 2014. To me, makeup empowers women, makes them feel beautiful and confident. I love to see my client's face after I’ve done her makeup and how amazed she looks when she sees how beautiful the makeup enhanced her features. I specialize in the eye area, perfecting eyebrows, and precisely blended eye shadows. My goal today as a makeup artist is to show people simple techniques with makeup that can bring out their inner beauty.
