Meet the Artist

Where It All Began

Professional makeup artist, Leanne Johnson began her MUA journey at the age of 20 when she was hired at Bare Escentuals. Here, her desire to learn as much as possible about artistry technique and color theory only grew stronger. Leanne soon realized that the passion she had for beauty and makeup would help shape the foundation of her career.

“Your dream job does not exist, you must create it.” This is a quote that Leanne lived by after she began working at Bare Escentuals. She knew instantly that to be successful, she needed to be knowledgeable and versatile. Leanne developed her skill set at Bare Escentuals by allowing every client interaction to teach her something new. She began researching various beauty brands and products; learning how they worked, why they worked, and who they worked for. She spent hours pouring over textbooks and watching youtube tutorials.

After her time at Bare Escentuals, Leanne began her next position at Chanel. In her first year, she was nominated for the prestigious title of Makeup Specialiste. After being flown to Boston to audition, Leanne was overjoyed to learn she made the cut! With her new title, she advanced to makeup artistry trainings at Chanel headquarters in NYC. Leanne honed her craft and continued with Chanel for two more years until she was ready to begin her freelance career. She has now been successfully owning and operating her own freelance MUA business for the past six years.

Leanne wants to share her passion for makeup and empowering women by giving you the ultimate beauty experience! Utilizing her professional expertise, creative inspiration and artistic skills, the result is always chic and seamless. Leanne would love to hear about how she can create a fun and glamorous look for your special occasion!

"I found Leanne on the Bride-to-Bride West MI Facebook page after I had a negative experience with my
original makeup artist. Though I had to fire my original make-up artist and find a new one last minute,
that stressful situation was probably one of the best things to happen to me during my entire wedding
planning process!!! She was flexible, and had open availability for a make-up trial, and she was
professional and quick to respond to all of my messages and questions. Leanne provided make-up for
myself, my 8 bridesmaids, and my mother/mother-in-law. I couldn’t have been happier with the results,
and I know everyone else was equally satisfied with her work, too. Leanne is incredibly experienced and
talented, she respectfully listens to your requests and opinions, and she carried herself throughout the
the day with a calm, collected, and stress-free manner. She is fun, easy to talk to, and makes you feel
comfortable during the entire makeup process. I would highly recommend her – she’s worth every
