Fête: noun - a festive celebration or entertainment
My mission is to celebrate life and look good doing it. I ensure my clients have a fun and relaxing experience by providing exceptional service, and when appropriate, a glass of champagne...or two. Three max. But who's counting?
As a native Southern Californian, Susie has always loved the glamour of Hollywood mixed with the laid-back cool of coastal living. She grew up playing in the dirt as a softball pitcher but would spend her time shopping at the mall in between games. After earning a full-ride scholarship to Hawai'i Pacific Universtity, she graduated with a bachelor's degree in Marketing. She has honed her business skills working for corporations such as Dave & Buster's, Nordstrom, and Cleveland Golf. Her passion for fashion and makeup, along with a desire for a flexible schedule to spend time with her husband and two kids, led her to enroll in the Napoleon Perdis Makeup Academy in Hollywood, CA. She completed their intensive Certificate Program in Fashion, Glamour & Bridal, as well as earning her Certificate in Eyelash Extension Application from Kelly Lash and now merges her skill set as the creative force behind Fashionable Fête. As a member of The Powder Group, it affords her access to a global community of professional makeup artists in all aspects of the industry (Editorial, TV/Film, Bridal, etc) and continuing education thru workshops and networking opportunities. Aside from servicing her private clients, Susie is a part of the pro artistry teams for global beauty brands, Charlotte Tilbury, Pixi by Petra, and Nudestix. When she's not painting faces, conducting makeup lessons, or throwing beauty-themed parties, you can find her whipping up gourmet desserts or acting as trip planner extraordinaire for her next great adventure. Susie strongly believes you can never have too many shoes or shades of lipstick.
