Ash Mathews


Born and raised in the Midwest, Ashley’s eye for perfection and intrigue with cosmetics began at an early age. A love for all things beautiful and fashionable led her to cosmetology school in 2002. It was there that Ashley found her true calling, makeup artistry.

In 2003 Ashley began working at a salon and it was there that she specialized in advanced color theory and color training. Ashley credits her knowledge of color with her success as a makeup artist.

In 2010 Ash relocated to Southern California and is now working as a freelance makeup artist for commercial, advertising, editorial, special events, and fashion and beauty projects.

Publications include Shape Magazine, San Diego Bride Suite, Quatro Magazine, Atomica Magazine, The G.O.O.D.S Magazine and more.
