AD Contributing editor - BEAUTY COACH
Kecia Littman is a creator of beauty. Whether in song, dance or makeup artistry, she wills her way to the heart of the matter. Manifesting inner beauty into reality as a professional Makeup Artist, for the past 16 years, Kecia has drawn inspiration from the serene island spirit of Hawai’i.
Kecia began her journey as a makeup artist with MAC Cosmetics. Soon after, she evolved to lead her team in a managing position at the MAC Cosmetics store in Ala Moana, Hawaii. Her desire for success led her to pursue a license as an Esthetician and eventually she rose to become a licensed Esthetics Instructor in the state of Hawaii.
Kecia rapidly applied her expertise by joining forces with accredited professional school, Makeup Designory (MUD), to produce one of the most comprehensive makeup curriculums Honolulu has ever seen. While maintaining a freelance career, Kecia never swayed from her primary intention to support beauty enthusiasts through example. Fixated on trending fashion, cosmetics, and high definition technology, Kecia began to train alongside Roque Cozzette, airbrush makeup aficionado and creator of internationally known Cozzette’s vegan brush and makeup line. This training enabled her to become proficient in airbrush artistry, and elevated her skills to accommodate the growing needs of her multi-faceted clientele. This wave of ambition has expanded her horizons from Hawaii, where she currently resides, to the runways of New York fashion week, where she assisted creative design director of Proctor & Gamble, Pat McGrath.
Motivated by haute couture, fashion trends, art, and beauty, she endlessly aspires to lift the vibration of Hawaii by producing gorgeous images for publications such as HI Luxury magazine, Honolulu Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, and Four Seasons Magazine, to name a few. Some of her celebrity clients include Mariska Hargitay, Kimora Lee Simmons, Pierce Brosnan, and Taryn Manning.
Kecia has recently acquired a Life/ motivational coaching certification from Global NLP Institute and is fusing this with her makeup career in order to educate and guide others towards reaching inner and outer beauty. Kecia’s generous spirit, consummate enthusiasm and appreciation for life are evident as she exemplifies creativity, using makeup as her muse.
“You have the ultimate freedom and control of every thought, action and feeling that you manifest. Thank you for honoring yourself today. For believing in yourself. For loving yourself. For co-creating with me today and allowing peace, love, respect and harmony to align with your true self on this journey and spiritual “path2beauty.” - Kecia Littman, Beauty Coach
