ashton doner

OWNER & MAKEUP ARTIST

Makeup has been a lifetime passion for Ashton. As a little girl, you could often find her brightly painting the faces of her mother and grandmother with the iconic shades of the 80s and early 90s. Today, that love of beauty has blossomed into a successful career!

 

Following her dreams, Ashton pursed her love for makeup and graduated from the Cosmetic Techniques & Management Program at Sheridan College. Throughout her 10 year career, Ashton's worked with Benefit Canada as a Brow Ambassador, developed looks for a national John Frieda ad campaign and volunteered with Look Good Feel Better. Recently Ashton was a mentor at the 2018 Young Women's Conference in Niagara Falls where she got to share her story of becoming a female

entrepreneur. Ashton worked as the Head Makeup Artist with Beyoutiful Brides before becoming the Owner in September 2017. 

 

Her greatest achievement is her part in each and every one of her bride's special day. Ashton knows how important it is to feel beyoutiful on your wedding day and works closely with each bride to ensure her vision is fully realized, so she looks and feels her most beyoutiful self! 

 

Ashton lives in Niagara Falls with her husband and pup penny. She enjoys travelling the world when she's not glamming brides for their big day!
