Shasta Hankins Studio Downtown Spokane

My Spokane Makeup Studio

My makeup studio is located in beautiful downtown Spokane, Washington on Browne
and Riverside. Services and sessions are by appointment. This is where I work, play, paint, laugh, and be creative. I enjoy keeping busy by spending my days with people who inspire me. My vision as a makeup artist is to allow your inner beauty to shine through.

I love being able to talk to my clients and build long-term working  relationships and friendships with them. I am careful to take my time with each individual so they have a positive experience every session. Helping clients feel fabulous by applying their makeup is very rewarding. I am inspired and love the arts, history, fashion, design, Asian culture, lighting, photography, crafts, and all things glamorous! This helps me to be a very creative and effective makeup artist. I welcome opportunities to apply your wedding makeup, one-on-one makeup lessons, commercial  and fashion shoots, or participate in your events or projects!
