"I am not one who likes to read about things in books, necessarily.
I want to live it."
Kayce Young has been in the makeup and skincare industry for 10 years. She doesn’t play around with makeup (well, she does actually, at times), because she knows what she’s doing. As a member of ASCP - Associate Skin Care Professionals - and a licensed aesthetician, she is both a pro in international commercial settings, as a production assistant, at weddings with brides who want a specific look and one-on-one as a personal VIP consultant. She has her certification in airbrushing and custom color blending, has experience transforming women in print & television, for the runway, in retail settings and across media.
She has also traveled extensively, been a trainer and freelancer, and even launched her own makeup line after noticing the striking difference that makeup made not just in appearance, but in a person’s sense of self and attitude. “There is a turnaround, a transformation, that occurs when you change the way you look through makeup. Based on that evolution, I named my company - About the Face.”
Most important to both commercial and personal clients is that Kayce doesn’t use a one technique fits all approach. Instead, she takes in the whole person, teases out what is distinctive about them, and highlights those features.
"I have worked with Kayce Young throughout the eight years that I've owned a women's clothing boutique. We began working together hosting makeup events. After that we relied on her to be the exclusive makeup artist and hair stylist for all of our photoshoots for print ads, social media and all other media advertisements.
Kayce's professionalism is top notch and her work is impeccable. She quickly understands her subject, the look we're going for in the shoot and how to bring it all to life. It's always a pleasure working with such a talented and kind professional.
I have never been more consistently pleased with any other makeup artist's work...ever. I always feel like the best version of myself. Kayce has the ability to create various looks that always remain polished and sophisticated. She listens to your ideas but will also have a fresh perspective of her own to give. My advice: take it...let her work her magic and you won't be disappointed. Whether it's a perfectly modified smokey eye for an evening out with friends or, most recently, my bridal makeup, I always feel comfortable, confident and beautiful with my look."
