Photos from Charleston On-Site Makeup: Kelly Campbell's post 09/23/2019

I’m the first to admit, my social media game is not that strong. I haven’t updated my website in forever, and I don’t often do shoots for myself, kinda unusual for a working makeup artist in this field, but life is just BUSY!! My dear friend Juliet asked me in July, “when is the last time you had headshots done?” And I said, “probably like 10 years ago when you last took them!” 🤪 So she came out to my house and we did these together. People, Juliet is THE BEST at this... I’m just so comfortable with her, as everyone always is- she is so funny, so *really real, and I’m so happy to call her the best kind of friend you could ever hope to have. She loves and supports me as a friend just as I do for her. And she is a talented creative whose vision goes far beyond photography. We just get each other, and it shows in the photos she took.

Happy 2018! 🎉
Each January, I like to spend some time organizing business from the previous year to get ready for taxes. This includes calculating mileage.
One thing that is really fun to see is how many actual miles I drove to work. In 2017, I drove two thousand, five hundred and twenty seven miles to make people pretty. 2,527! That's a LOT of car time. 🚘 Looking on the map, that would be like driving to California.
It's important to review where you've been, but I'm also looking forward to what 2018 has in store.

Best wishes to everyone as you dream big dreams, and plan for a future where you do what you love 🙌


Honored to meet and do makeup for Dr. Bernice King, daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King, as well as CEO of The King Center. Dr. King had an interview with the BBC with journalist Zeinab Badawi, who was also lovely to work with. Look for it to air in about a week!


Inspiration today courtesy of 86 year old grandmother of the bride 👰🏼👵🏼 She was mostly a quiet woman during much of the day, and had not requested makeup so I never had a chance to really interact with her. As I packed up to leave and all of the young ladies were in the other room, she came over to ask my opinion of the lipstick she was wearing. At her request we chose a new color for her to go with her dress :) She began telling me about her life. When an elderly person wants to tell you their life story, by the way, you listen!
She said she went straight from her father's house to her husband Fred's house at the age of 18. Fred was a few years older than her and was a WWII vet. Had 3 children, and was done having babies by age 24. Married 61 years! Her husband died a few years back, but before he did, he showed her how to do things around the house she would need to know. He told her he thought she would want to stay inside the house after he was gone.
This petite little lady is at the gym most weekdays, and uses weights as well as the treadmill and elliptical. She is also an editor for a magazine publication of 14,000 readers. She has to be home when the lawn man is there working, otherwise he doesn't cut her yard the way she likes it :) :) So cute! She was mentally sharp and physically able to move around quite easily. Her secret to longevity is keeping it moving, both mentally and physically. I want to be like her when I'm 86 years young!! We should all :)

Having a great time on my second set this week!


3 day photo shoot wrapped up for First Reliance Bank in three different areas of our beautiful state! The last shoot day took place in a rustic old grain farm barn, turned into a photographer's dream studio, on the photographer's grandparents' land in old tobacco farming country. The floors were original and oozing with character. Man I love seeing these unique places!! 😍


Happy Wedding Day to the beautiful and sassy Courtney, my final bride of 2016 ❤️


Pretty Kate 😍 She is a petite little firecracker who reminds me so much of Ariana Grande.

Romantic Coastal Elopement in Charleston

Super beautiful, Cottage Hill Magazine spotlight- I had the pleasure of contributing makeup for this gorgeous bride 😍😍 I'll never forget when my newlywed husband and I visited Charleston together for the first time. We spent some time in Savannah first, then drove to Palmetto Bluff to stay for a few days before exploring the city. It was February in the South, so early morning bike rides were crisp, but by the time…


Charleston On-Site Makeup is 10 years old this month! That makes 19 years of makeup artistry. All of the years- thousands of faces- hundreds and hundreds of weddings, and then the commercial gigs- really overwhelming to think of all of the experiences connecting with people as my clients, and also my professional peers. Thinking back to my early childhood, drawing all of those pretty princesses 💖 The Lord truly put a desire for creating beauty deep in my soul.
Bridal portrait today for Kathleen, and Kendra's wedding tomorrow 🎉 🎉🎉


Happy Wedding Day, Emily! Sweet schoolteacher, Clemson grad bride with a funny Southern family 😄


Special effects "sunburn" makeup for an upcoming dermatology commercial. Katie

Had a great time reuniting with the cast and crew of the film production I did makeup for... The Final Adventure of John and Eleanor Greene. Beautiful film. This is Ann, lead actor, 85 years young and just the sweetest!! The handsome fella in the photo is my husband of 17 1/2 years ❤️


Happy Wedding Day, Ms. Bet! So elegant…

To borrow from the post office... Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays this makeup artist from the swift completion of her appointed rounds. 6am fitness bikini competition makeup- check! (Go Crystal!) Next up- using 526 the long way around from Mt. P to bypass downtown, to get to my Folly Beach wedding party by 10:30. Everyone stay safe and dry today!


Happy Wedding Day to this sweetheart bridal beauty, Bonnie! She reminds me of Anne Hathaway 💄💍

Happy Wedding Day, Caitlin!


Had the wonderful privilege of meeting and doing makeup for civil rights hero Mrs. Charlayne Hunter-Gault today in our beautiful city. She was here to interview our Mayor Joe Riley for PBS Newshour. Mrs. Gault was the first black woman to desegregate the University of Georgia in 1961, after challenging the segregation policies of the school with the help of the NAACP. She and another black student, Hamilton Holmes, were true pioneers and incredibly courageous as they walked on the UGA campus on that first day of school amidst riots, with no police escort, during a dark period of our nation's history. They both graduated from the UGA and went on to have very successful careers- he as a doctor and she as an award winning journalist. I told her I admired her bravery and courage to be able to do what she did at such a young age- how that must have made her feel like she could do ANYthing after conquering that spirit of fear. What a lovely person to meet. I am incredibly blessed to have my job. 06/06/2015
