Annabel is a traveling Lawrence/Kansas City-based professional makeup artist.
Born and raised in Hong Kong and having spent half her life in the US, Annabel keeps with the latest beauty and makeup trends and techniques in both Western and Asian cultures.
Her philosophy for makeup artistry is significantly influenced by her training in vocal performance and the piano at an early age.
At age 15, she spent time in Canterbury and London, England for a small production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Cats as Grizabella.
She believes in harmony in her works of beauty; and harmony does not equal to dull and motionless. Harmony, to Annabel, can be loud, colorful and exciting, as long as the art piece does not become a sore to our senses.
While she specializes in clean beauty makeup artistry, she does not limit herself from vibrant colors. She is a certified airbrush makeup artist and was a beauty consultant for Motives Cosmetics. Her work has been featured in local fashion shows, magazines and in a four-day concert at the Hong Kong Coliseum.
She has assisted Celebrity Makeup Artist, Ms. Candace Corey, in an HGTV Christmas Commercial in 2011 and a beauty TV segment “Mirror, Mirror” in Texas.
