Today we’d like to introduce you to Stephanie Neiheisel.
Stephanie, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
After having terrible skin growing up I found myself intrigued with skincare and makeup. I mostly just wanted to feel good about myself and I wanted to take care of my skin. 10 years ago, I applied at Bare Minerals in Salt Lake City Utah and the rest is history!
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I’m a makeup artist by trade but I also dabble in photography. I became a makeup artist because of my own experience growing up with terrible skin. I remember the overwhelming feeling of happiness and relief when I finally found the right lifestyle, skincare, and makeup that worked for me; for the first time ever, I felt naturally healthy and beautiful. I thought to myself, “everyone should feel like this.”
My journey in makeup didn’t blossom because I was jazzed on creating graphic-liner on someone. I wanted to make a difference in someone’s life even if it was something as “small” as makeup. 90% of my interactions the first two years of being a MUA was working at a Bare Minerals counter at a Nordstrom where the clients all had mild to severe skin conditions and our line was one of the only things they could wear. It has always been about WAY more than make up for me; it’s about the people and helping them feel like the best version of themselves.
What responsibility, if any, do you think artists have to use their art to help alleviate problems faced by others? Has your art been affected by issues you’ve concerned about?
The world right now is absolutely changing and pushing the mental and emotional threshold of all of us. We have seen times like this before and unfortunately, we will probably see them again. Artists have always had a tremendous impact on connecting us when the world seems to be falling apart. We have a voice and I’m so proud of artists who use that voice to stand up for those who need it.
