Professional makeup artist and host Kendall Swenson is based in Los Angeles and Kansas City, but is available for bookings worldwide. Kendall was inspired at an early age to explore the world of makeup and fashion and has since applied makeup to thousands of people.
As a makeup artist, Kendall has applied makeup for countless weddings, fashion shows, photoshoots, film and commercials. A partial list of clients include CGC Daily, Blush Group, Kathryn Dean, Stacey Gualandi, Cat Viger Apparel, Audrey Magazine, The Art or Die Show, the ASCAP Awards, Puga Fashion, Gianin Shop and Crystal Cruises.
Kendall has worked with various cosmetic companies, where she developed educational seminars for different groups such as the Kansas City Knights Cheerleaders and the University of Kansas Spirit Squads. Kendall was also asked by Crystal Cruises to be a Special Guest Host aboard their “Fashion and Style” cruise, where she presented a lecture on the evolution of makeup and taught current makeup trends in fashion.
Whether through hosting group makeup parties or giving private makeup lessons, Kendall is passionate about teaching others the art of cosmetic application. Kendall partnered with Ehow to create a series of makeup tutorial videos, hosted a pilot for a makeover show, and was featured in “Trailblazer Series” in VoyageLA.
Sensing there was an information void in the beauty industry, Kendall created The Guide to Getting Glam, where she shares easy, practical makeup tips for modern women. She also created and online makeup class called Glam Bootcamp, which teaches women basic makeup skills and techniques.
Kendall is also proud to have lent her talents to many professional and charitable events, including Fashion for the Cure, Cancer Support Community, Macy’s Passport, The Look for Success, and Dancing with the KC Stars.
