"Creating beauty and connecting with people are what I live for. For me, being a makeup artist is more than just enhancing someone’s exterior…It’s uncovering someone’s true beauty and helping to reveal that person’s inner confidence. Makeup can feel very empowering for people, and I love to be a part of one’s self-discovery. Beauty is defined in many ways, and we all see it differently. It’s really about self-expression and self-acceptance. We are all uniquely beautiful, and that should be celebrated".

My name is Shanie Crosbie, and I’m a professional freelance makeup artist. I’ve been in the beauty industry for well over a decade. My makeup artistry experience is broad and consists of beautifying brides and bridal parties, boudoir sessions, fine-tuning makeup for head-shots, creating timeless looks for special occasions, film and editorial work, and teaching makeup lessons. I’m passionate about skincare and the health of the skin; that’s why I’ve obtained my aesthetics license as well. I have learned the best makeup techniques and skincare practices. I pride myself on educating my clients and I feel that this is very important for reaching an individual’s beauty success. I work on location, primarily in Santa Barbara, Ventura and California’s central coast, but I am open to travel. Please contact me for availability and pricing information, so I may answer any questions you have.
Shanie is also the co-owner of r.s.hairandmakeup. A hair and makeup styling team for weddings, special events and photo shoots. Click here to learn more.
Raves and Reviews:
Shanie is hands-down the best makeup artist to ever get a hold of my face! I was over the moon when I saw the finished product of her work and will exclusively work with her moving forward. I have sensitive skin so she carefully chose the products she used on me which I really appreciated-- not a trace of irritation after I took my makeup off. Shanie is thoughtful and knowledgable and 100% on trend with colors, techniques, etc. Added bonus? She's an absolute doll and joy to be around! I was able to pick her brain a bit about the latest and greatest products which was quite fun. Shanie is a perfectionist, really takes her time, uses amazingly high quality products and will make you look absolutely flawless!
I was thrilled with my makeup! Shanie did an amazing job. I was getting married, my timeline was short, I was in a pinch and Shanie came highly recommended. She arrived on time, listened to what I wanted, and talked me through the process. She was personable and professional. At the ceremony and reception, I received so many compliments on how great I looked. It was all due to Shanie's work. I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed the process. I'd hire her again in a second.
