Behind the Brush

Sara Boyd is a Maryland/Washington, DC based makeup artist with over 6 years of experience specializing in special occasion, bridal, and photo studio makeup. With her brushes, palettes, and expertise, she is invariably eager to bring your natural beauty to life.

Sara began as a self-taught artist during her undergraduate years at Florida Memorial University, always the one glamming up the ladies before special events or the night life South Beach had to offer. She’d light up at the smiling faces of her clients upon seeing their beautifully polished looks after being transformed by Sara.

With a growing passion to better her craft, Sara made a commitment to cosmetics and enrolled in Cosmix School of Makeup Artistry in Ft. Lauderdale after receiving her undergraduate degree. She received a hands-on experience at Cosmix, learning a variety of makeup application techniques and products.

Sara further improved her skills while gaining professional experience working at MAC Cosmetics and Anastasia Beverly Hills over two years. Her makeup process creates a blossoming and beautiful appearance while also maintaining care for the health and cleanliness of the skin. While recently, Sara branched out to Photography to capture all of her beautiful work. 

Sara now freelances and is available for flawless face appointments, weddings, special events, and makeup workshops in the greater Washington, D.C area. Traveling is also available.
