ABOUT BRANDIE

Brandie Monae is not your standard Makeup Artist (MUA) as her gifted hands encompass the artistry of ministry. This passion for makeup began while watching her grandmother and mother powder their noses during her childhood. Soon she began experimenting with looks on her and her little sister, choosing various shades of blush and eye shadows. After perfecting various looks, Brandie Monae’s friends began to take notice and often requested her services for special events. With the desire to stay close to cosmetics, she worked as a Mary Kay consultant while pursuing her undergraduate degree at Texas Woman’s University (Denton, TX). 

Transitioning into the corporate world after graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Public Health, Brandie Monae knew something was missing. Even after obtaining an MBA, she knew her gift was not being cultivated. After working in corporate America for over ten years, Brandie Monae stepped out on faith, under the tutelage of celebrity MUA and founder of Glamour Rx, Brigette L. Washington, and birthed B.Monae Makeup Artistry! 

Not forgetting her humble beginnings, Brandie Monae has graced cosmetic counters including Clinique, Christian Dior, Tom Ford and Becca Cosmetics, where she also served as Business Manager. At these counters Brandie Monae realized supplying makeup services was more than providing a pretty face and producing a sale, it was about giving a client experience and the ministry of purpose. Formally trained by the TV and Film Makeup Academy in Atlanta, Georgia, Brandie Monae’s work has been featured on various red carpets, world-renowned conference stages, and in global publications. She has also had the opportunity to work for celebrity clients such as April Ryan, Bishop T.D. Jakes, Stacey Abrams, Jennifer Holiday, and gospel legend Dorinda Clark Cole, to name a few.  

Today, you can find Brandie Monae advancing her skills in television and film. If you would like an honest, professional results driven artist; Brandie Monae is the MUA for you. When she is not working, Brandie Monae enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, traveling and being a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
