I'm Ilona Kobylinsky, a hair and makeup enthusiast and a graduate of Portland Beauty School. Fresh out of college I started in the medical field for job security but quickly realized that my heart was always in making women beautiful. I loved getting pampered and always dreamed of making women feel as beautiful and confident about themselves as I felt. After a some time of helping friends and family with makeup and hair styles, I finally decided to go to beauty school.I am grateful for the support of my family during this process. Most of all, I am thankful to God who gave me this talent and helped me on this journey.

I believe that true beauty is found on the inside. My goal is to help bring that beauty to the outside.  I am devoted to making women feel confided about themselves. Having the passion, education, and skills helps me make that happen.

I've struggled with acne since I was a teen, so the health of clients skin is very important to me. From my experience, I have learned how to apply makeup strategically, without overwhelming the skin. I've taken additional workshops from Portland's most talented makeup artist including Austie Eckley and Nicole Wagner and Mac Cosmetics instructors.
