  • About Lindy

    I'm a professional makeup artist based in Chicago, Illinois. I received my education at Makeup First, School of Makeup Artistry- a nationally recognized school that is also approved under the Illinois Board of Higher Education. I am trained in a variety of areas in makeup including: Media, Editorial/Runway, High Definition, Bridal, Theatrical/Special FX, Clinical Makeup and Airbrush. In addition, I have a BA in Graphic Design from The University of Illinois at Chicago where I also studied art history, painting, drawing, industrial design and sculpture. I enjoy helping clients feel beautiful and confident because I believe people are only able to contribute their absolute best selves to the world when they feel their absolute best.
  • Beauty Philosophy

    I want each person that sits down for a makeup application to feel beautiful, empowered, comfortable and most importantly- that they can trust me to listen and execute their vision to their standards and help them to feel even more confident.
  • Tips & Tricks

    Whatever style you prefer, whatever look that excites you and makes you feel like YOU is always the right look! There are no rules in makeup. Also, never apologize for your unique and beautiful features! Embrace yourself and love yourself just as you are. That is what makes you the most gorgeous!

    Hands down, my Temptu airbrush. It makes everyone’s skin look completely flawless, it is super lightweight and feels like nothing on the skin, it photographs beautifully, and it can last up to 24 hours. Nothing beats having gorgeous skin!

    Lindy is my go to stylist. She did dramatic rocker eye makeup and hair for my event. This is not my normal look at all, but somehow she made it look appropriate and like me. It was one of my favorite outcomes. And she always prompt with arrival and time spent on services. I highly recommend Lindy!

    1st timer and had such a wonderful experience with Lindy! Her relaxed yet professional demeanor instantly put me right at ease and it immediately felt like I was just getting ready for a night out and chatting away with a girlfriend. My hair & make-up looked fantastic and held up all night! I will definitely be using her services again and highly recommend her to anyone considering this for the first time!

    Lindy arrived at my house very early (5:30am) to do my hair & make-up for a dance event. Once again, she interpreted my inspiration photos for hair & make-up perfectly. She is extremely prompt and usually needs 45 minutes for hair and 45 minutes for makeup. She is a total pro and great to work with. I highly recommend Lindy!

    The day of was even better than the trial. Lindy was punctual and efficient with time. She was flexible when I completely changed the bridal makeup. I was able to really relax.

    I had a fantastic experience with Lindy! My hair and makeup turned out exactly as I had hoped since she interpreted my inspiration photos perfectly. It was my first experience with airbrush makeup, and I loved the natural look and feel of it. She also showed up on time, was extremely prompt when providing her services (less than 45 minutes each), and we had a lovely conversation. I will be booking with Lindy again, and I highly recommend her.
