Happy Wedding Wednesday and happy belated Fourth of July! Today we introduce the last artist in our CT wedding hair and makeup artist series! Bonne has been with KiSSandMaKeUp for 3 years.
Growing up, Bonne’s early years were consumed with both dance and soccer. It wasn’t until she was in 8th grade that she discovered she enjoyed playing with makeup too.
Once she was in high school, Bonne began not only doing her friends makeup but also cleaning up their eyebrows (all self-taught). While Bonne continued to practice her makeup skills, she did not plan on using her makeup artist skills as her career. After graduating high school, Bonne attended Capital Community College and obtained her Associates Degree in Science and a Certification in Radiography. Shortly after graduation, she went to work as a Cat Scan Technologist.
Bonne spent 8 years as a Cat Scan Technologist before accepting a job as a CT Technologist at Hartford Hospital. This is when she met Pam. This was just the person he needed to meet! Throughout her entire hospital career, makeup continued to be Bonne’s hobby. It gave her a break from the chaotic hospital live and she used it as a stress reliever. After meeting Pam, she decided to get certified as a makeup artist. Bonne was certified through the International Institute of Cosmetology in 2012 and shortly after she approached Pam for a shadowing opportunity. Pamela credits Bonne for pushing her to grow her business. Bonne was relentless in pursuing Pamela and requesting to work with her.
