The Makeup Story LLC. is owned & operated by Kayla Rae Combs.
She has been in the makeup industry for 16+ years, but ever since she was in elementary school she has had an enthusiasm about playing in makeup. She blames her love of makeup on her mom, and how she would use eyeshadow from her giant, multi-color eyeshadow palette to match Kayla’s windbreaker outfits or those color coordinating Hanes sweatpants & sweatshirts. Kayla worked and held many positions with MAC cosmetics for 13 years. She was fortunate enough to speak on behalf of the MAC for all of Texas, sharing her knowledge about the brand, makeup products, and makeup tips & techniques.
Her favorite services to offer clients include: teaching makeup lessons, makeup applications for photoshoots, events, special occasions, and makeup for all things wedding related. She has received THE KNOT’S “The Best Of” award 4 years running. Makeup lessons are her #1 favorite thing because she feels strongly about encouraging others to love makeup.
Kayla says, “If makeup feels like a chore, then you won’t want to do it. Something has to change, either your perspective, techniques, products, or maybe all 3”
She believes that we should always be learning and expanding on our skills, hence why she is on the path to receiving her Esthetics license early 2021. With such a long history in makeup, it only makes sense for her to add this elevated experience to her list of services.

“Building a client’s makeup look from the foundation of healthy perfected skin is where it must start. You can put all the trendy or high-end makeup in the world on top of your face, but feeling good in your own bare-faced skin will always be in trend.”
