About Me

My name is Rikena and I am a makeup artist/educator. My company is Uptown Beauty, I offer make-up  styling. Beauty and Special effects. I'm intrested in meeting new models, wordrobe stylists and photographers to work on new projects. Please contact me if you're interested. 
(Please note: I do not do hair, but can try to accomodate you with someone who can if needed)

During the past 12 years as a make up artist, I have learned to be resourceful and preserving. At age 8, I gained an interest in the exciting possibilities of the beauty industry. I acquired a scholarship to the world famous Make up Designory (MUD). It was there that my talents flourished. I did all phases of make-up  for private clients, fashion, film and print. As I felt the need to advance, I begin to freelance and assist for an agency, becoming a busy make-up artist for film, fashion and print. When assisting work at the agency dissolved, I focused on freelancing full-time. I began doing my own P.R. and management. As an artist , I have been requested and privately hired for print, fashion and film. I have an eye for classic beauty and am an innovative make-up artist. I specialize in clean, natural and glamor make-up. I am based out of New York and San Francisco.
