Artist Bio

Whitney Alford is currently based in Los Angeles, California. She is a Freelance Makeup Artist and Skincare Specialist working in the entertainment industry. Before taking on the world of beauty, Whitney acquired a B.S. in Accounting from the California State University, Long Beach. After some time, she realized her career didn't allow for much creativity. Growing up in a family of hair stylists allowed her to gain knowledge in the area of cosmetology, and Whitney started braiding and styling hair at the age of 12. This, in turn, led to her makeup career, which started in male grooming, working on sets of music videos. The work was fun and fulfilling, intriguing her knowledge for beauty makeup. This is when she decided to further her makeup education at Make-up Designory in Burbank, California. Following makeup school she decided to acquire her license as an Esthetician learning the ins and outs of skincare.  Since then she has worked on print sets for Reebok, Rolling Stone, Ebony, and Billboard magazines to name a few. Skincare, Special Effects Makeup, Hair and honing in on her Beauty Makeup experiences gives this artist a plethora of opportunity to indulge in her creative skill.
