Sue Stirling

I'm a Makeup Artist and Licensed Hair Stylist
in Detroit

I’m a licensed and experienced makeup artist and cosmetologist serving all of Metro Detroit.

I love working with anyone and everyone. All people possess memorable features, presence and personality. Whether you’re young or mature, a public figure or beloved by a chosen few, my job is to discover and highlight what already makes you beautiful. Give me a call:

A Girl Named Sue

Looking for perfect hair and make-up, delivered by a professional and served with a side dish of humor? With my two decades of experience at M·A·C Cosmetics, improv training from Second City Chicago, cosmetology license and Paul Mitchell education, and work with celebrities and well-known photographers, I guarantee your time in my chair will be interesting and fun. I’m hard-working, no-fuss, consistent and experienced. 

 

Bottom line: I believe everyone deserves to look and feel their best, no matter who you are or where you come from. That’s my job and I love every minute of it.

Services Offered

I specialize in natural makeup and creating a soft, glamorous look. Though I am happy to deliver any style you desire, I prefer a gentle approach that enhances the beautiful you that already exists. 

Beauty at the ready: I bring my mobile makeup and hair studio directly to you, whether you’re at home, preparing for a photo shoot or about to walk the runway. My rates are reasonable and so am I.
