Hair & Makeup

image2.jpeg

Hi, I’m Andrea with Makeup by Drai. I was born and raised in Tucson, AZ and began my career in Bridal Makeup in 2005 after falling in love with the art of beauty through out my youth years. Working very casually in the industry, I decided to receive my Aesthetic License in 2013 at Pure Aesthetics to further my career as an Artist and to receive certifications as a Lash Artist as an added beauty enhancement.

I worked for MAC cosmetics receiving extensive training as an Artist on the team. I decided to resign from my position after having my 4th child so I can devote a year of my life to her as well as my family. After missing the Art of Makeup and working on others, I crossed paths with the very talented Krista Manus with Unleashed Boudoir and l am honored to be on her team. I pride myself in my work and no job is complete until executed as my clients request.  Makeup is my absolute passion. Nothing gives me more joy than making people feel beautiful about themselves and recreating their vision and making it come to life. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and has always been a part of my life for what it means to me. Makeup is an artistry and I love creating beauty to the naked eye, its just an enhancement to your natural, beautiful features. Faces are my canvas, I muse by the work of my hands and makeup is my masterpiece.


Life is about Dance
