Her MakeUp Story
Ashley would have never thought in a million years that she would become a Celebrity Makeup Artist. After graduating from The Fashion Institute of Technology with her Bachelor's Degree she had hopes of becoming a big Celebrity Fashion Stylist. At the time of searching for a corporate job, she was looking for a quick retail position to help cover her small bills.
Ms. Dalton's grandmother suggested the Macys makeup counter. She had no intention of really taking it seriously however over time she grew to love it. Ashley realized that makeup made women look good and feel good. Each time someone sat in her chair she instantly became a beauty therapist. She wasn't only helping them look beautiful but she was building their self-worth and confidence. It was then she knew this is where she belonged.
Past & Current Clients
After six years of doing makeup, Ashley has worked on International Campaigns (Sky Vodka), with countless networks (B.E.T, MTV, Vh1, Bravo) and publications Essence Magazine, Nylon, Elle, Paper Magazine, and Buzzfeed just to name a few. She's also worked on every B.E.T red carpet award show (Hip Hop Awards, SoulTrain Awards, Black Girls Rock, B.E.T Awards) including working along with Sir John (Beyonce’s Makeup Artist) for a Buzzfeed Series.
Ms. Dalton has worked with the industries best such as Kevin Hart, French Montana, Remy Ma, Angela Yee, Amara La Negra, Dreezy, Lynn Whitfield, Opal Tometi and more. She continues to reach millions of people all around the world through her Instagram, Tik Tok and Youtube combined.
Working around celebrities inspired Ashley to really start taking care of herself. She didn't have as much money as her rich celebrity clients for surgery or luxury beauty treatments so Ms. Dalton found a way to look her best . After signing up for a gym membership at Blink Fitness her whole life changed.
Her body started to transform and while doing makeup people started asking Ashley “How did you get so snatched?” After being asked so many times she decided to start her own fitness brand (AshleysWaistGang) to help women create the body they desire through fitness and positive self-talk.
Now the brand truly embodies mind, body, and soul. Ashley Dalton helps women from the inside out with their beauty, body, and wellness needs.
