BY MAKEUP ARTIST KENDRESS HUGHES
“Beauty is more than skin deep.”
This may be a cliché’, but it’s the motto that I’ve grown to live by. My name is Kendress Hughes. A Mississippi born fashionista who has been given the gifts of makeup artistry, fashion stylist and personal shopper and mentor, just to name a few. All of these talents go hand in hand when it comes to my businesses. I am the owner of “Gifted and Thrifted,” a styling and personal shopping service that offers “one of a kind” clothing to women at incredible prices. I have been told that I have the eye for great fashion finds when it comes to thrifting. By way of thrifting, I am able to help women build awesome wardrobes at unbelievable prices. I mean “Why shop when you have someone else to do it for you?” I also am the owner/makeup artist of “Beautifully Painted by Kendress,” a full-service makeup company. I have worked with many beautiful women while operating within my God-given gifts. Each encounter I consider to be special and rewarding. Whether they know it or not, every client pours something special into my life, allowing my business to grow in ways unimaginable. I am truly thankful for each person that I am able to help. This is why I consider my businesses ministries. Whether they receive a great outfit or make up for their special day, far more is received.
