My name is Marykate Plante 

I am a professional makeup artist still navigating this industry one face at a time. I have had a passion for makeup since I was in seventh grade. It became an outlet for my inner peace and confidence. It was a form of therapy for me then. Being a professional makeup artist has always been a dream of mine, yet I never thought it was realistic. So, instead of attending cosmetology school right after high school, I attended St. Bonaventure University. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in English and was planning to get my masters in higher ed. While I am so grateful for my college experience and the wonderful friends I made, I am so glad I opted out of my original plan to follow my passion. Now, 12 years later, I have made that passion my job, and I could not be more grateful. I am still working on growing my career, so, in the meantime, I am working in higher education. 

My goal for this blog is to provide a place where those new to makeup or those wanting to explore more avenues of makeup will be able to learn something. My blog will be a place for future brides to get some information, and if you like my work, hopefully, you'll want to book with me! Furthermore, I hope to put a smile on someone's face and make them feel good, beautiful, and confident. 

If you took the time to check out my blog, I am happy, grateful, and humbled to have you. I hope you enjoy your time :)
