My name is Ciara, but people call me Ci! I grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and was always a creative kid. I spent a lot of time drawing and writing for fun. That transferred into my young adult life, which led me to study communications and graphic design at Kent State University.
I got my start in makeup during my freshman year of college (2015/2016). It all started with me being bored in my dorm room one day. I had a thought, while watching makeup tutorials on YouTube, that maybe I could do makeup! I began to purchase makeup from the drugstore and practice on myself. It was at that time that I began to record YouTube videos and post to my channel.
By my senior year of college, I began to take clients and also became the VP of MUA Kent State, a makeup organization on campus. I had the pleasure of being the official makeup artist for one of the school's magazines as well. My passion continued to grow more than I anticipated.
Fast forward to the present day, and I have been blessed to touch the faces of hundreds of beautiful people. It brings me such joy to be able to do what I love and meet amazing souls in the process!
Love You, Ci is like my stamp. It's similar to "Sincerely, Ci" as if it's an ending to a letter, only this is to my clients and supporters. The second meaning is also special. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I want you to love what you see (Love You, Ci) looking back at you as you view yourself in the mirror.
Love You, Ci is committed to giving you an experience you won't forget. We welcome all skin tones and skin types. We love all makeup looks from natural to glitz and glam. You will leave the makeup chair feeling and looking beautiful!
I am so excited to continue to pursue my passion and share special moments with all who book with me. Welcome to Love You, Ci!
