Shannon Sharpe is a proud mother, a zealous entrepreneur, and a committed educator. Her amazing skills and talents are not just within the artistry of makeup but, she is also the founder of the YoungMiss mentoring program (Conversionz4Girlz) that caters to girls ages 11-18 which allows young ladies to better direct their futures. She’s also the president of the Aglow International, in Fuquay Varina lighthouse (www.aglow.org).
With over 10 years experience in makeup, Shannon Sharpe is one of North Carolina’s Triangle Area premier freelance makeup artists. She’s worked on shoots for Carolina Style Magazine among other publications. Shannon’s byline: “The Art of Seeing the Invisible“, describes her artistic ability to visualize and manifest a “look” that reveals and enhances the natural beauty that is already present.
I started with a strong desire to help others embrace who they were and never to feel less than amazing. Back during my days in college, that desire manifested itself in encouraging words, accessorizing my friends clothing, hair-styling, nail-art as well as selling cosmetics and beauty potions. Those experiences lead me to who I am today instilling the art of beauty to my clients through Makeup Artistry and Beauty Coaching.
My desire to help others continues to grow and I have intentionally allowed that desire to be evident in every area of my life.
It is easy to dress up the outside and can be done in a matter of minutes but I thank God for the ability and opportunity to beautify the “insides & the outsides” of my clients. I am grateful to create beauty that remains!
I love Shannon Sharpe and the studio. Professional and clean atmosphere with friendly service. I also love the fact that she cares for my skin by using pure, safe and beneficial products from Arbonne. My skin can breath with this makeup and it looks flawless because of the skin care. Shannon is the best!
I would not allow anyone other than Shannon to do my daughter's or my makeup ... she's incredibly awesome!!
Shannon did my wedding makeup. I looked so awesome! I'm so glad we did a run through for my bridal portraits (Which turned out beautifully). It made me more confident for my wedding day. Knowing how beautiful the makeup looked on film, I still looked myself, but a naturally glammed up version. Thanks!
Shannon is an amazing artist, she brings forth a positive attitude and is highly motivated and committed to making one feel and look beautiful from the inside out. Shannon's recommendations allow you to understand how investing in yourself is vitally important to your self-esteem. Shannon is creative and is able to give you, your perfect look. I highly recommend Shannon as your Beauty Coach
Shannon provided makeup services for myself (bride) and two of my bridesmaids for my recent wedding. The results for all three of us were absolutely amazing and Shannon was more than willing to do what it took to make sure each of us was comfortable with the end result and throughout the entire process. Shannon is extremely talented, professional, flexible and a warm, kind-hearted person. If you're looking for stunning makeup at a reasonable price, look no further. I'm so thankful to have found you Shannon, you made my special day even more perfect. Thanks again for everything!
We LOVE LOVE LOVE Shannon. She did my daughter's make up for prom and it turned out EXACTLY like the pictures she gave her. She is so talented and easy to talk to. She kept my daughter at ease and gave her great advice on how to keep up the look. I would highly recommend her for any occasion.
"Shannon is such a gifted professional! Back when I had a new baby, I needed a new look. Shannon gave me exactly what I needed, she was patient with me and made me feel and look better than the woman my husband married 5 years ago. I love the expertise and professionalism that she exhibits and she always nails it! I can't recommend a better makeup artist, Shannon is the BEST!"
