You might be wondering where the name "Ugly Duckling" Beauty Artistry came about. Why would a makeup artist dedicated to beautification name her business after the old wives-tale of a so called "Ugly Duckling"? She wants nothing more than to see you smile when you see your finished look in the mirror. All too familiar with being the "Ugly Duckling" in younger years, her driving force became allowing others to see themselves in a new & beautiful light, just as the Ugly Duckling was able to do after blossoming into a beautiful swan. She received professional makeup services at the age of 15 & will never forget the feeling of looking in the mirror with a new found confidence; she felt like a swan & wants to pass that feeling onto you!
