Annie Presley is an L.A.-based artist specializing in airbrushing and print makeup. She trained under makeup guru Donna Mee at Empire Academy, gaining experience in print, runway, bridal, and corrective makeup, in addition to color theory, the science of cosmetics, and skin care. She was born and raised in Seattle, where she played music and sketched constantly growing up. In 2009, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue fashion and makeup opportunities, and in the middle of that year relocated to her current home in Orange County. Having been raised in a house of strong, fabulous women, Annie has dedicated her craft to ensuring that every woman she works with leaves her chair feeling beautiful and powerful. Currently her collaborations are being featured on Italian Vogue, DisFunkshion, Buzznet, and C-Head magazine blogs, and are generating buzz in the Los Angeles art photography and high fashion spheres. Annie is also working for the most successful bridal businesses in Orange County, where she is honing her bridal skills and building a loyal clientele base. In the future, she hopes to take her skills to Maui, where Annie spent part of her childhood, and set up her own bridal makeup business. In addition to her work in print and bridal, Annie has been chosen to work on several feature-length film projects, as well as internationally-renowned music videos. Her professionalism, excellent training, and flawless eye for color and design are making her one of Southern California’s MUAs to watch, today and in the future.

The Raw community has introduced me to some of the hardest working and (in my opinion) the most talented individuals in our field. Thank you Raw for building such an unstoppable family of artists <3
