Meet Holly Nicole Barto

A little about Holly Barto's experience...

Holly Nicole Barto was born in Newport Beach, California, but was raised on the Hawaiian island Maui. Having acted in summer community plays since the age of seven, Holly was exposed to the magic of makeup at a very young age. After graduating from Seabury Hall, in Makawao on Maui, Holly pursued a higher education at University of Colorado in Boulder. There she continued to perform makeovers on fellow students, faculty and for local magazines.

After her second year in Colorado, Holly received an offer from Camile Velasco, an American Idol finalist from the second season, to move to Southern California and work as a freelance makeup artist in the industry. Holly moved to Oxnard, California, attended the Lu Ross Academy in Ventura and received her Makeup Artistry Certificate.  She learned every aspect of makeup; basic every day looks, wedding and special occasion techniques, airbrushing, high fashion/high drama looks, theatre and high definition film and even special effects and prosthetics. After working in Los Angeles doing everything from student films, to photo shoots, to music videos and runways, Holly decided to move to Billings, Montana to finish her college education, and explore makeup possibilities nationwide. In Montana Holly worked as a beauty advisor for Estee Lauder, and expanded her knowledge of beauty products and skincare.  Estee Lauder educated Holly through different seminars about the importance of skincare, and how to make woman of every age, and every style, feel beautiful and confident everyday.  After two years at Estee Lauder, Holly decided to work for the number one Spa and Salon in Billings, The Sanctuary, as a beauty consultant. She remained as a regional makeup artist for Estee Lauder, continuing to do special events.  At the Sanctuary, Holly learned extensive knowledge about the Aveda line, as well as additional skincare wisdom and beauty advice.  Holly was taught the entire Estee Lauder and Aveda line, and has acquired many experiences that sculpted her into the magnificent makeup artist she is today.


Holly has now brought these skills back to Maui... 

Since her move, she has chosen to use the entire Chanel line as her choice of product for her kit.  She has full knowledge of the entire beauty and skincare line, and feels that Chanel has the best products for enhancing beauty in anyone.
