Britt Garrison is a self-taught makeup artist from Detroit, Michigan. As a competitive figure skater throughout her youth and teenaged years, Britt's passion for makeup developed early on when she was given her first blush, mascara and lipstick for competitions. Playing in makeup quickly became more than an asset to her bedazzled skate dress but a gift she wanted to share with the world.
After graduating from Michigan State University in 2010, she relocated to Los Angeles, California to pursue her dreams of becoming a renowned creative professional in the Fashion & Entertainment industry. Not long after her big move, she met celebrity makeup artist (and fellow Detroiter) AJ CRIMSON. After seeing her potential she was given the opportunity to hone her skills and begin assisting him with his celebrity clientele as well as work hands on with his luxury cosmetic lines (Kissable Couture & AJ CRIMSON Cosmetics).
Since then, Britt has continued to perfect her craft, and work with well respected individuals in the Fashion & Entertainment industry including Shaun Ross, Masika Kalysha, Aminah Abdul Jillil, Sharon Carpenter, Karen Civil, La'Britney, Ashley Everett, Olori Swank, Tammy Townsend, April Daniels, Mary Mary, Trevor Jackson, Mindless Behavior, Kevin McCall, Bridget Kelly, Dawn Richard, Lance Gross, and Reagan Gomez to name a few. In addition, Britt also worked with EDGE Magazine where she not only applied makeup for features, but wrote beauty tips and trends for their issues & website as well.
Determined to succeed, Britt's main goal is to create effortless beauty and to help others maximize their potential. Highly innovative and versatile, Britt knows just when to turn it up to set a look over the top. She pays close attention to detail, and intuitively plays up unique features on each client's face.
Britt is currently based in Chicago, and open to travel.
