“I am an artist, and the human face is my canvas.”
My name is Kim Wijangco, I am a Certified Freelance Hair and Makeup Artist based in Los Angeles. I am very passionate with beauty and I aim to help people look the best version of themselves. My goal is not to mask, but to enhance beauty.
I’ve always been obsessed with the art of makeup, spending my free time watching youtube tutorials, practicing makeup looks on myself and doing makeovers on friends and being their go-to “beauty consultant.” I decided I wanted makeup artistry as a career in 2017, and enrolled in the Beauty Artistry and Hair Artistry course in Michael Vincent Academy in Los Angeles.
Ever since then, I’ve been doing freelance work on photoshoots, special events (weddings, birthday parties, red carpet events), Fashion Shows, Commercials, Short Films and Video Production Shoots. A little bit of everything.
I love being a makeup artist because of the emotional fulfillment it gives me. I love helping someone feel beautiful (don’t get me wrong, I think everyone is beautiful, and beauty comes in all shapes and forms, but in case they don’t realize their own beauty, I hope to help them realize it).
To me, there is more to makeup artistry than being “superficial.” When a woman feels beautiful, they’re in a better mood, they’re more confident and they project that confidence to the world. It’s having the ability to make someone feel good about themselves which I find so amazing. It’s a unique art form, where your canvas is the human face, there are different colors, face shapes, skin textures and skin types.
I feel grateful to work with amazing people so far, and I hope to work with you soon. Thanks for reading! 🙂
