Taylor, Co-Founder, Makeup
When asked how long I’ve been doing makeup my answer is simply, always! I have always loved and played with makeup but started getting serious about it in 2006 when I started working as a Color Expert at Sephora. Bringing out someone’s natural beauty by playing up their best features is when I am living my best life but I also love being challenged to do something out of the box. I am a self proclaimed brow master and a serious perfectionist. After over 12 years in the beauty industry I still love it just as much as when I first started and I'm so grateful that I get to do something I'm passionate about every single day. Besides makeup, my biggest passions are my 2 incredible kids and my husband of 10 years.
I was 13 years old when my aunt paid me to do my cousin’s hair for a banquet and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I ended up going to cosmetology school in high school, getting my license soon thereafter and pursued furthering my education by obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Communication from Texas A&M University. Fast forward to now and I have over 10 years of experience in the bridal hair industry and feel God knew what he was doing when he gave me the gift of crafting beautiful hair. I love making beautiful things but even more so love making someone feel beautiful. When my hands aren’t busy doing hair, they can be found interlocked with my high school sweetheart husband’s, squeezing our sweet son Lincoln’s yummy cheeks, or getting into anything creative I can. I moonlight as a lifestyle blogger over at Lots of Lovely and feel my love for creating beauty extends to the home and the heart.
Making women feel beautiful on one of the biggest days of their lives brings me the most joy in the world. After I received my cosmetology license back in 2015, it wasn't long before I opened my own mini-salon in Friendswood, TX called abbyann's. At my space I get to use my creativity to cut, color, and style with the freedom of managing my own schedule so I can work with SKMU in this crazy, beautiful wedding industry. My favorite Saturdays are spent dolling up you wonderful ladies and making you feel beautiful on your special day. When I'm not at work you can find me at home living the newlywed life with my husband!
Chelsea, Co-Founder, Makeup
After receiving my esthetic license in 2007 I started working full time at a medical spa. My experience with skincare sparked my interest in the skin and beauty industry—every face, skin type, and personality are different, which is why I love what we do. There is nothing better in this world than to make someone feel more beautiful than they have ever felt . When I’m not doing what I love I’m spending time with my husband and being a mother to our daughter and soon to be baby boy.
I started cosmetology in 2007 and right after went straight to Texas A&M University. There I gained a degree in Marketing and worked in the corporate world for a couple years. Something always felt like it was missing and I discovered what it was, being creative with hair! I love the artistry in creating effortless and romantic up-dos and making someone feel so beautiful on their big day!
DAIZY, COMMUNICATIONS & Makeup
Hi there, it’s Daizy- most people call me Daiz! I’m in charge of all our communications here at SKMU. So if you’re talking to someone through a screen, that’s me! I started going to school for Dental Assisting and then was offered this amazing opportunity to work for this amazing group of girls allowing my real passion to shine through. Doing makeup is something that makes my heart so happy, and I would have to say weddings are my favorite. The happiness & love you feel in the atmosphere is unreal and an indescribable feeling. I grew up in the Sagemont area and moved to Seabrook in 2009 just to be closer to the water. You will probably find me here for forever, because outdoor activities by the water are what makes my soul happy!
Sunkissed & Made Up has other incredibly talented artists that are hired out to help throughout the year. We carefully select these artists to ensure they produce the same quality of work and style that the full time members offer.
