How you can help us achieve the bridal glam of your dreams






Hello Gorgeous!

I‘m Shannel, professional makeup artist and CEO of West Coast Makeup + Hair.
Currently based in Santa Barbara, CA while still booking and managing my team of artists in Portland, Oregon. I started West Coast Makeup and Hair in hopes of helping other creative and passionate women do the work they love and escape the 9-5 like I did. I also hoped to create a team that would provide brides with the absolute best possible bridal glam service, from booking to wedding day. Our goal is to always exceed your expectations and leave you feeling confidently yourself.

heres how it all started

Welcome to West Coast 

My glam style is soft yet elevated, full face without the 🎂

My brides may not wear makeup every day, but they're not scared of makeup either...

I have spent the last 4 years of my bridal makeup journey perfecting my craft. My brides love the way I can do a full face of glam without it looking or feeling heavy. I love to keep my bridal looks simple and neutral with a little bit of sparkle ✨ in all the right places. Revealing the final look is always the highlight of my day and most brides will say "I look just like me but with a filter!" And you can bet it will last all day 😉

I personally LOVE to travel for elopement & destination weddings, as well as teach and mentor other artists in the industry. When I'm not working I love spending time at the beach with my baby girl Ellie.

As a licensed esthetician of 8 years, I recognized my love for glam at a very young age. I remember as a little girl being obsessed with my Granny’s huge vanity, it’s mesmerizing drawers full of lipsticks and blushes. I would sit there for hours on end either doing my own make up or admiring and studying how she did hers. Growing up a dancer I was also the go to girl for hair or make up and always putting on everybody’s lashes.   

I am such a hopeless romantic and I can honestly say I found my true passion for make up and hair in the wedding industry. I love everything about weddings, the energy, the love, and the magic. There’s truly nothing more fulfilling than being chosen and trusted to make a bride feel her most beautiful on such an intimate and special day. I can’t wait to meet you!
