Randee Strand is one of the most sought after make-up artists in Dallas for a variety of reasons. The first and most important is her mastery in her field, the second is that she doesn’t use assistants (when you book About Face Artistry, you get Randee herself), and not to be understated is her effervescent personality.
On the most important day of your life emotions will be running high and tempers short, Randee prides herself on being punctual, professional and arriving with a positive attitude. “I want the bride to have fun. It’s such an exciting time in her life and I love being a part of the process.” Randee’s smile is almost as infection as her personality.
Randee is MAC and MUD certified and has completed airbrush certifications with Diniar and Kett and continues her education constantly by studying in New York with celebrity make-up artists and designers. “No two faces are alike, each person is a new canvas for me and I LOVE to paint them. It’s my goal that a bride feels more beautiful on her wedding day, or the day of the portrait, than she’s ever felt before. I don’t want her to just look beautiful, I want her to feel beautiful,” Randee stresses the difference.
Born and raised in Dallas, Randee is a bride favorite, so much so that she is often the second call after the parents once a bride is engaged. “Since I don’t send out teams of assistants, I guess some of my clients feel some pressure to secure me once the date is set.”
With extensive experience in fashion, Randee is capable of generating soft, natural looks as well as dramatic and over the top make-up and specializes in period artistry. “I have so many brides come to me with pictures of the venue, the dress, the accessories and ask me to date their make-up to match. My job is so fun! Forties glamour, high fashion, roaring twenties, Hollywood drama- I’m thankful to be able to provide any look a bride desires,” Randee says.
