Kimberly G. Brown was introduced to the makeup industry in the turn of the century. She was once told “If you love what you do, consider yourself a success.” That stuck with her forever, so much that she lives by the quote in everything she does.

After working in several different companies in retail management and leadership. She wanted to feel that fire burning inside again. One day in the cold winter months she was getting ready for work. As she looked in the mirror, she thought...

What is my purpose, what is my passion?

Kim began putting on her lip-gloss…. She stopped mid lip and said that’s it!

“ I am passionate about something I have done everyday since the age of 13…the beauty of transformation.”

Desiring more, she attended Inner Beauty Academy where she received her professional certification in the art of makeup in January 2007.

There she trained and worked hand in hand with her instructor while she learned cutting edge techniques. Focusing on airbrush technology,glamour,fantasy, period makeup, black and white verses color photography, and bridal makeup. Later she decided to further her services offered and attended Francis Tuttle Technology Center in Oklahoma City to become a licensed esthetician in 2013. Currently Kimberly has a registered business Vortex Esthetics L.L.C with the state of Oklahoma and is working for herself as a freelance artist and esthetician. She has set up shop in Norman Oklahoma to practice her craft and love on her clients daily.

A week before my bridal shoot/bridal make-up trial Artistic Glam had cancelled on me and that was chaos for me! They did me the biggest favor because I hadn't seen their reviews and ratings! My mom looked online and found Kimberly to do my hair and Amy to do my make-up. I could never be happier with my choice! Kimberly was amazing and so helpful, she asked my ideas of what I wanted my make-up to look like and she went above and beyond to make me look exactly how I wanted to look for my big day! Kimberly was very kind to me when we met for my make-up trial. I am usually a bit questioning of people at first, but Kimberly and I talked as if we had been friends forever, she truly cared to know about me and my fiancé. Kimberly uses only the best products, I was concerned at first because I have very sensitive skin and when I expressed that concern she showed me everything she had used on my face and told me how it all worked. I got my make-up airbrushed and she told me it would last 12 hours, when I did my make-up trial for my bridal photo shoot I got my make-up done at 10am and after I finished sweating and running around by 9pm my make-up was still flawless! I am at a loss for words as to how to express how wonderful Kimberly really is, but every bride needs to experience it and I recommend her to each and every bride I know! Kimberly was such a big part of my special day and she made me so beautiful. Thank you so much!

Kimberly came to our rescue just a few days before the wedding. She did an amazing job on my makeup(mother of the bride) and my daughters. (bride) I was pretty stressed that day and after she was finished I was so relaxed. I recommend her to any mother of the bride. I received several comments on how I looked that evening. Some folks even thought I looked 5 years younger! Wow!!! Great stuff. My daughter has trouble with oily skin and was concerned about her face becoming shiny as the evening went on. That wasn't the case at all. Her makeup looked flawless all evening. Thanks again Kimberly we appreciated your help!

Kimberly did a wonderful job on my makeup for my bridal portraits and for the wedding and my bridal party's makeup. Both times the makeup looked beautiful and stayed the whole day. She picked just the right colors for me and applied it just the way I wanted. Around the wedding time I was very tired and wasn't getting a lot of sleep because life and work was crazy but she applied the makeup in a way that helped me shine and not look tired not all. I was very impressed and happy I chose Kimberly to do my makeup. I would definitely recommend her to any future bride looking for someone to do their makeup for their wedding.

I have cosmetic retail and application experience myself. So when it comes to someone else doing my makeup for me, I can be very critical. But Kim made me feel more beautiful then I ever have without overdoing it and listening to the overall look I wanted to achieve. It made the day of my wedding so much more relaxing to know I was in good hands and didn't have to stress about doing it myself.

I am so happy that I chose Ministry of Makeup to do my makeup for my wedding! Kimberly Brown is fun to work with and is very skilled and passionate about what she does. She did an amazing job on my makeup, my mom's, and sister's. We all looked and felt beautiful and the pictures turned out great. After attending a friend's wedding where Kimberly had done their makeup and seeing how gorgeous they looked, it was an easy choice for me to have her do mine.

Kimberly Brown was very nice and helpful. I called and asked for her services with a 6 day notice. She was very accommodating. I am not the kind of person to chit chat with someone I don't know, but Kimberly was very easy to talk to. I happened to get a spray tan the day before the wedding and it was way too dark. Kimberly made my makeup look amazing, and she fixed the mess ups from the spray tan on my chest. Everyone complemented me on my makeup. She took the time to ask what my everyday look is, and she made me look great while keeping the natural look. At first it felt like she was layering on the makeup, however when you use great makeup it felt like I was wearing nothing. I will recommend her to everyone! I was on a tight budget so felt the price was a little high but at the last minute I had no choice. I am glad that I chose her. She and her associate did the makeup for the bridal party and for the moms and grandmother. All were wonderful.
