A little bit about me…
Having an artist for a mother and a lawyer for a father, pretty much destined me to create a career for myself that would combine art and business. I began my love affair with makeup in 2011 when I graduated from the Master Artistry Program at Makeup Designory in New York City. I started working as a Freelance Makeup and FX Artist on everything from documentaries, to Indie horror films, to music videos to even heading up the makeup departments for various Haunted Houses! I was a sponge, absorbing everything I could! I learned a lot about myself and thought I would never leave the Big Apple. New York had so much to offer and always kept me creatively fulfilled but as life tends to do, it threw me a curveball. So, I packed up my prosthetics, my brushes and my fake blood and shipped off to Phoenix all in the name of a pretty amazing guy I now call my Husband. I didn’t know that it would end up being the best decision I’d make in life and in business!
I have been named one of the Top Makeup Artists in the Valley by Scottsdale Modern Luxury Magazine, (Best of the City July/August 2014 Issue). A featured makeup artist on ABC15’s Sonoran Living and my work has been on Comcast SportsNet, College Humor, Nickelodeon, ABC15 Sonoran Living and ABC15 News. My clients include Designer Label Rae Francis, Olympic Gold Medalist, Aly Raisman, Actors Charles Esten, and Jaime Ray Newman. I am also a certified Eyelash Extension Technician with Luscious Lashes (based in Orange County, California).
For the past 11 seasons, I have had the pleasure of working alongside some brilliant creatives at New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Week. Fashion week is absolutely a passion of mine, and it allows me to travel to some of the most beautiful places for work!
Bryanna Casey Makeup has grown into a full blown Bridal Service company and we are nationwide! Offering Hair styling, Makeup Application and Eyelash Extensions to Brides all over Arizona and all over the US (we travel!). My ever growing list of Bridal clients have become my life. It is such an honor and reward to be welcomed into their most important moments! I absolutely love what I do, I smile every day and I never consider it work. I’d like to think this feeling is mutual for all Bryanna Casey Makeup clients!
I am Co-Founder of the ‘Phoenix Makeup Collective‘, an independent agency representing top Makeup Artists and Hair Stylists in Phoenix, Arizona that specialize in Bridal, Editorial, Commercial and Esthetics.
I believe in forever learning, always changing and sharing my knowledge with fellow artists! My hope is to elevate and contribute to this growing collective of amazing individuals that make up the beauty industry.
