Hey everyone!! My name is Virginia McConnell. I am a professionally trained MUA Graduated with honors from Hollywood Expression makeup school (HEX) www.hexmakeupartist.com
! I absolutely love it!! I have also been a professional model since 03'.
I love working as a team and know that a single image is the team work of many professionals.
I have trained under celebrity artist, Angie G. Ford. She has worked with J Lo, Jessica Simpson, Lindsay Lohan, Pam Anderson... and lots more, so I feel I have learned from the best!
THE MAKEUP I USE: I use media makeup, that means it is specifically made for cameras and film. It lasts a long time and it is flash proof from a camera. The line is actually my instructors own professional cosmetic line. Her name is Angie G. Ford and she reserves all of the makeup for her students to boost the success of the school. Its awesome makeup! Also I heart Urban Decay, Smashbox, Makeup Forever, Bobbu Brown and some MAC.

LOVE this wardrobe!
Still my favorite of Skyes :D
A few words from my clients:
"Virginia,It was a pleasure to work with you yesterday. Your professionalism, charm, organization and most of all cleaniless is a model's ideal make up artist. I have experienced the ups and downs in this industry. One of the main downs is having a make up artist of a different ethinicity do my make up. In most cases they have been reluctant because it's challenging for them to match the colors. As a result, I have used the same make up artist consistantly for the longest time. Unfortunately for me all good things must come to an end. She moved and now I have to start all over again. lol However, you proved that it is possible to embace the challenge and for that I am grateful. You did an excellent job!
I highly recommend your services to anyone and will call on you in the future.
Again thank you for your time and services!"
"I can't recommend Virginia highly enough! She's a great makeup artist (and model!), she takes her work seriously, she's reliable, thorough and fun. She always goes in with the attitude that she has a personal stake in making the model look great. The most important thing to me though is that she's super cool, funny and down to earth, which helps everyone get into the groove and have a great shoot. Also, she has an instinctive sense for posing and she's happy to give new models/photographers direction."
-Photographer, Jacob M
"You can be confident in Virginia's makeup. It will bring out the best of your model. Two things set her apart from other competent mua's: her model experience and her enthusiasm for the creative process of photography. Her model experience makes her a contributor to the image making process and her enthusiasm nurtures the whole creative process."
- Photographer, Jerry Brown
"I loved working with Virginia as my MUA! She is dedicated, responsible, and amazing at what she does. She has the power to transform faces (with her make-up), bodies (with her posing tips), and minds (with her awesome enthusiasm about everything! Especially the industry). She is very artistic, creative and detailed with her make-up, does her research beforehand to make sure everything looks right, and isn't afraid to go the extra mile to make things perfect. I highly recommend her!"
"I am writing in regards to Virginia Mcconnell. She has been pursuing a career in the entertainment industry for some years now. I highly regard her as a makeup artist. Recently, she did make up for me at my photo shoot in Houston. She used the colors well and made me gorgeous. Virginia was great help. I loved the job. Her personality is lovable, fun, and she makes sure her clients are happy. It is a great decision to take her own as an employee or more."
-Model, Kristin Jeanes
I had a great experience working with Virginia for a shoot. Virginia is a passionate make up artist. She works hard, takes her time and knows exactly what her passion is. She is professional and a blast to work with. She values your opinions and is always willing to helpful. She's fun, her make up techniques are awesome. Very clean and artistic with her make-up. I would love to work with her again.
-Model, Tabitha Davila
"Virginia is a gem -- incredibly innovative and creative, she shows up on-time and ready to work and does a great job. She can adapt to almost any situation and has pulled my butt out of a sling more times than I can remember."
-Photographer, Dave Mundy
"Virginia is the best!! She does an outstanding job and is completely professional. I would and will recommend her to anyone."
-Model, Megan Danielle
"I highly recommend Jenya McConnell. I had the pleasure to work with Jenya on many occasions and I have been extremely pleased with her work. Jenya has shown her dedication to her profession and has strong desire to succeed in her career as a make-up artist. Jenya is always seeking new challenges and she is not afraid to try out new ideas. She is extremely excited and energized about her work. She is very punctual, always prepared for the assignments and always shown a positive attitude towards her collegues and clients. She has gained trusts from many local photographers and models, she is also highly recommended by several of my collegues. She is one of the most desired makeup artist to work with here in Houston."
-Photographer, Michael Chang Photography
"Virginia is a wonderful professional. On time, ready to go, and works to make the look work. The makeup looks great - but she also builds a solid rapport with the model. She makes the shoot work smoothly."
-Photographer, Bob Warren
