Originally from Canada, Kela’s makeup artistry has taken her around the world multiple times.
Best known for her collaboration on highly provocative projects and advertising campaigns, including Ciroc Vodka, the Cosmopolitan Hotel of Las Vegas, Neiman Marcus, Jean de Merry, and Victoria’s Secret, Kela’s trademark of ultra luminous skin, which exudes raw sensuality makes her “the make-up artist of choice” with photographers such as Tony Duran, James White, Tony Kelly and notable directors including Anthony Mandler, Jonas Ackerlund, and Michael Bay.
Kela’s work has graced the covers and editorials in magazines such as Vanity Fair, ELLE, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Nylon, People, Rolling Stone, GQ and Photo.
Her roster of A-list celebrities include Rene Russo, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Sandra Bullock, Rachel Bilson, Salma Hayek, Paris Hilton, Brooke Shields, and many more.
Known amongst celebrities and body conscious clients as the “Spray Tan Guru”, Kela can add a glistening warm glow to ivory milky skin, or take it up a couple of notches and have you looking like you’ve been vacationing in St. Tropez.
Kela is currently bi-coastal (Los Angeles and New York) and is excited to be working for her Canada clients in New York and LA and of course happy to be back
in the Canadian market!
