My Story:

After witnessing firsthand the struggles and frustrations of many women attempting to effectively use the cosmetic products they already own, I decided to launch SHAPE UP YOUR MAKEUP --- a company who firmly believes in the tangible and intangible benefits of educating women on how to best apply their own makeup each and everyday.  I give women the hands on instruction they need to simplify their makeup routine and beautify their lives!

My Services:

  • In-home makeup application training
  • On-site special event makeup application (weddings, proms, etc.)
  • Photoshoot makeup application

A trained Bobbi Brown makeup artist and educator, it is my lifelong love of color, artistic eye, addiction to all things fashion and passion for helping others that have led me to a career in the makeup industry --- and I love every minute of it!

"Aleah is not only a gifted makeup artist but she is a true sweetheart.  She give great skincare/makeup advice but still listens to your needs as well. My makeup was flawless for my wedding, not too much (as I am not a makeup person) but not bland or boring either. My makeup complimented my skin, dress and the overall spring theme of my wedding." - Jamine Jackson, Bride (Married 4/19/13 in Balitmore, MD)

"Aleah is a very talented, goal-oriented, and dependable artist. Working with her makes my job behind the camera that much easier. Her creativity with makeup and style is hard to come by. Not only is she talented, but she also has an excellent business and professional acumen that comes across from your first interaction with are. She is definitely a valueable asset in the fashion and style arena!" - Doug Ramsey, Photographer (

"It was a pleasure working with Aleah. She’s a true professional who pampered my portrait client making her look and feel especially glamorous. I appreciated her paying attention to the smallest details, which greatly improved the images delivered to a very satisfied client. I whole-heartedly recommend Aleah for her outstanding make up skills and look forward to collaborating with her again soon." - Ronnie James, Photographer

"Aleah is a class act! Not only is she an extremely talented makeup artist, she's personable and a true professional.  When I went to see Aleah, I had experienced some bad results with the smokey eye look.  Every time I had it done, I looked tired. Aleah gave me the smokey eye look and eliminated my natural under eye bags.  The best part about the whole experience is the she made me hold up a mirror as she was applying the makeup to show me how to go home and do it myself. I will definitely be using Aleah again and recommending her to others." - Atlas Eftekhari, Client
