MK Makeup Artistry is proud to provide hair and makeup to pageant contestants all over the United States, and Globally. MK Makeup Artistry was started by owner Makenna Henning
(formerly Barnes) when I was just 16 years old. At the age of 16 I did my first wedding hair and makeup clients, and from then it blossomed. I have a HUGE passion for the pageant community. I started in pageants at the age of 9, when I could no longer do competitive cheerleading due to a disability. Pageants became my world and I never looked back.

Starting MK Makeup Artistry has been SO rewarding. I absolutely love the girls I get to work with each pageant, photoshoot, appearance, etc. Something I really pride my company on is how we operate. When booking MK Makeup Artistry, you are always going to work with head artist, Makenna Henning. Yes we do have other artists who help curl hair or do foundation bases, but your completed look will be done by Makenna. This is a big deal for me knowing you get who you are paying for. Our number one goal for our clients isn't just to have them leaving the hair and makeup room looking beautiful, but also feeling excited, happy, confident, and ready to take on the stage. All of the MK Makeup Artistry team is here to encourage and uplift all of our clients to feel their best.

I have been so lucky enough to work with some of the most prestigious title holders in pageantry. From Miss USA's and Miss USA State title holders, to NAM National Title holders, Miss High School America National title holders, IJM international title holders, IUM International title holders, and so many more.

I absolutely love working with girls of all ages and seeing their face when they look in the mirror after being glamed. It truly gets me every time knowing they not only look beautiful but they truly feel beautiful inside and out. I wouldn't be where I am today with out the love and support from my clients.

I absolutely loved working with Makenna this year. Makenna defiantly goes above and beyond for her clients. All of the looks she created for me were absolutely perfect. For interview I was fresh and clean, and for stage I was glamorous! Makenna truly knows what looks will highlight your features. Not only did I look great, but I felt amazing. Her and her team go above and beyond to encourage and support the entire time you are with them. I will always recommend Makenna to everyone. What I loved most was booking Makenna I actually worked with Makenna.

I had the wonderful experience of working within McKenna this past summer. She was very personable and was incredible. Her style is natural but glam. I didn't look like a drag queen, makeup wasn't caked on at all. I highly recommend her!

MK Makeup Artistry did my makeup and hair for the 2019 IUM international finales. Not only did they leave me looking absolutely flawless; which gave me added confidence throughout pageant week, but they were also so professional and friendly which made me feel comfortable and took away any stress I had. I would highly recommend Makenna and her team for anyone needing hair and makeup.

Makenna is absolutely amazing! We used her this past summer at IJM Internationals and the whole experience with Makenna could not be faulted. Her team was great and her hair and makeup services were second to none. We will definitely be using MK Makeup Artistry again at our next pageant!
