Chaya: Feminine name of Hebrew origin meaning life. The root of the name is chai which means alive/living being/living.

I have a long relationship with chai. In fact, I felt connected to the word and its symbol the first time I saw it. After a little investigation, I also learned that it is the root of my family name. So, you could say that the love of life and all things living was instilled in me from birth. Chaya Beauty is born of that very love for living beings, beauty, the arts, and a deep respect for the roots and wings God and my family have given me.

Makeup by Chaya Beauty

“I have worked along side Heather as a peer artist for several years and can with out a doubt in my soul verify her skill level to be nothing short of incredible. She puts love into her art and dedicates herself to finish a job to the best of her ability 100% of the time. With a delicate hand and a kind heart, I recommend her services to my closest friends and family!”
Doug Christy Dove, Advanced Certified MUA
“Heather is a master at her craft as a makeup artist and shines while making people look and feel their best.  She has a wealth of knowledge, is a leader in the makeup artistry world and has been a wonderful mentor to me as a makeup artist through the years,  Heather is phenomenal and working with her makes you feel pampered, loved and beautiful!”
Amy Stroud Contreras, Owner/MUA of Amy Rene Makeup Artistry

“For the most part I know how to do my makeup and feel confident in it, but I also felt like I needed a tune-up! Let’s get real, makeup has changed a lot since I was a teenager. I reached out to Heather and asked her for a one-on-one session to discuss my skincare and makeup habits. She was extremely helpful, fun and showed me new tips and tricks of the trade and it has increased my confidence on how to apply my own makeup to fit any occasion! We had a fun time while doing it! She was very knowledgeable and didn’t make me look like a clown like many makeup places I’ve tried in the past have. I’m so glad I booked a session with Heather! ”

Kira Gonzales, Realtor
“Heather was highly recommended to us and we couldn’t have asked for a better make up artist for my daughter’s senior portraits. It was a great experience from start to finish. She took the time to get to know my daughter’s everyday make up style so she could keep it similar and her pictures would represent her style. She also incorporated the color of the outfits and location of photo shoot to make sure everything blended and worked well together. She gave us great tips and is a wealth of knowledge in make up and skin care! She is great to work with and made us feel comfortable. We are so happy to have met Heather and are grateful of her sharing her k nowledge and talent with us! We highly recommend her and will definitely be seeing her again in the future!! Thank you Heather for this unforgettable and amazing experience!”
Adrianna Melo

“I have had the pleasure of working side by side with Heather for many years as a professional MUA. As a colleague, she is an inspiration for next level artistry, and she pushes everyone around her to be better. I’ve had the pleasure also of having her as a client, which is also equally wonderful. I am so excited to get PMUA work done myself by Heather in the future, as she is one of the only professionals who I would trust for an equal match of beautiful artistry, professionalism and absolute quality with universal precautions and sanitation.”

Leigh Wick, LE/MUA/Owner of Vanity Makeup and Skin
“Heather is not just a makeup and hair stylist, but an artist with a brush. She knows perfectly well, the types of colors to put on different models and what would suit them instead of slapping a face of makeup on them. I am proud and honored to have her part of my team, and also a true friend. She goes above and beyond the call of duty with clients and makes sure, their vision is met.
Heather is a sweet, kind, genuine soul that should be the face of the makeup industry with her talent and personality.
I am always amazed with her ideas. She is a visionary with the art of makeup.”
Cassidy Andryana Walker, Owner/Artist of Cassidy Walker Photography
“Excellence is an understatement. Heather is knowledgeable, professional and has many years of experience in the skincare industry. She is extremely patient with all of your questions and answers them with such knowledge. She will not push anything on you but will make sure you are well educated and understand the benefits of what she is offering to you. Heather only uses top of the line equipment and materials from the front of her business to the back. She is exceptionally clean and will always create a beautiful atmosphere. I highly recommend that if you are searching for the best, call Heather.”
Christina Kliphardt, Owner/Artist of Christina Kliphardt Photography

“Heather introduced me to what a real makeup artist is about. She is so talented in the artistry of makeup application, I trusted her with my wedding day and have used her more than once for photo shoots. I will continue to seek out Heather for all my future makeup needs, she is irreplaceable to me.”

Judy Pasco, Owner of Red Roote Salon & Boutique
“Working with Heather for years I have never ceased to be amazed by her exemplary attention to detail and her skill level. Her ability to connect with her clients allows her to see them as who they truly are and highlight their best features to create a look that is true to them. She is a true artist that sees and communicates beauty and her gifts truly make the world a better and prettier place to be.”
Faith Hovde, Owner/Artist/Entrepreneur of Emerald Studios
“My daughter chose Heather to do makeup for her and her bridesmaids for her wedding.  I was able to join the group.  The finished product  looked so good, I hired Heather to do my makeup for our 50th anniversary  party six months later.  Thanks Heather!”
Claudine Mulvihill

“Heather provided her bridal makeup services for our wedding and I cannot recommend her enough! She was able to come onsite for both my trial run and the day of wedding. All of my bridesmaids and my mother loved their makeup. She made my skin look flawless and my makeup stayed on all day. She is prompt, courteous, super friendly and very knowledgeable. We have also used her services for other events and we are thrilled every time she does our makeup. I wish she could do my makeup for me everyday. Thank you for making us look and feel beautiful!!”

Taylor Evans

“We had Heather do my 17 year old daughter’s make-up for her senior pictures.  We had to reschedule due to the photographer changing dates due to weather and Heather was so flexible and accommodating.  She came to the house totally prepared with everything my daughter could have possibly wanted.  Heather carefully listened to what my daughter envisioned for her make-up, she asked my daughter about what she would be wearing and where they would be shooting the pictures.  She made my daughter feel very comfortable and talked with her and engaged her in conversation.  In the end, the make-up was so beautifully done and exactly what we had hoped for.  I would highly recommend Heather!  She was fabulous!”

Gina Burt

“Heather has done hair and makeup for two of my girls. One was for senior pictures and the other for a dance. I have never been happier with the way their makeup was done. Heather took the time to ask, and truly listen, to what their usual look was, then what they wanted.  The girls loved the finished look, as did I. We will be booking her for all of our makeup for events from now on!!  Heather also has a heart of gold. My mother loved to get her nails done. When my mom’s health failed and she was bed-ridden, Heather took the time to go to her house to still do her nails. I am very thankful that I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Heather, and I look forward to getting to know her more!”

Maria Townsend

“Heather did such an amazing job at teaching me how to do my own makeup for my wedding. I explained to her that I was super nervous and really had no clue what I was doing, but because my wedding was a destination one I didn’t have time to procure a makeup artist. She came to my house, went through all of my makeup that I so carefully picked out at Sephora and she taught me how to use brushes and how to put on all of my makeup. She let me take videos so that I didn’t have any issues when I was trialing on my own. And she gave me tips on face care products and what to do before the wedding. I am so happy I was able to meet her and message her when I was trialing on my own. She was an absolute wonder to work with!”
