Alyssa Shanae Contreras, a Ventura County native, was inspired at a young age by makeup, hair, and all things beauty. From adolescence to adult hood, Alyssa has continued to express her creativity through her passion for art through makeup and hair.


After graduating high school, Alyssa continued her education to earn a degree in Business Management. While completing her coursework, she had the opportunity to take an Introduction to Stage Makeup & Special FX course. It was this course that allowed Alyssa to take her creative talents to new heights and focus on what she truly wanted to do, makeup. 


With the support of her family, Alyssa then enrolled in the Ruby Makeup Academy of North Hollywood and became a Certified Professional Makeup Artist in August of 2013. Since then, Alyssa has taught herself how to do all natural Henna tattoos and was again certified by the Ruby Makeup Academy of North Hollywood in Hair Design & Styling in August of 2016.

Alyssa currently divides her time between a full-time work schedule, the love for her craft and all the other blessings life brings her.
