Shane : Makeup Artist

Shane Doucet is a native Las Vegan, whos love for make up started when she was a little girl watching her aunt getting ready to go out for the evening. From there, she began practicing on every doll and stuffed animal she could get her hands on( much to the dismay of her mother). As a teenager, she made up all her friends for their school dances, events, and slumber parties. Shane became serious about becoming a Make Up Artist while living overseas, in China, and honed her skills there for five years. After returning to the United States, she joined team Making Up Las Vegas and has been joyfully making up faces ever since. Shane’s motto for life, “Everything’s better with glitter!”

Jolene : Makeup Artist and Body Painter

I started doing makeup for the Theatre Department of my High School as a Freshman . That is where my love for the art was born . I spent endless hours applying and removing my make up trying to mimic the looks that were found in fashion magazines. It became a passion for me . I relocated to Los Angeles right after High School and attended Makeup Designory in Burbank. I graduated with a Master’s Certification in Beauty, Airbrush, and Character/Special Fx Application. It was such an amazing time and I learned so much I would love to repeat it.

I have been working in the Wedding, High Fashion, Film/TV, Adult Film, and Print Industries ever since strictly on word of mouth advertising. In 2004 I took on a career as a Flight Attendant so that I could have access to the travel benefits that would allow me to travel domestically and internationally so that I could expand out of Los Angeles. I have travelled the world for some stunning events, made amazing connections and had many extraordinary adventures.
