Kecia littman 

Kecia Littman is a creator of beauty. Whether in song, dance or makeup artistry, she wills her
way to the heart of the matter. Manifesting inner beauty into reality as a professional Makeup
Artist, for the past 17 years Kecia has drawn inspiration from the serene island spirit of Oahu.
Kecia began her journey as a makeup artist with MAC Cosmetics. Soon after, she evolved to
lead her team in a managing position at the MAC Cosmetics store in Ala Moana, Hawaii. Her
desire for success led her to pursue her license as an Esthetician and eventually rose to become a licensed Esthetics Instructor in the state of Hawaii.
Kecia rapidly applied her expertise by joining forces with accredited professional school,
Makeup Designory (MUD), to produce one of the most comprehensive makeup curriculums
Honolulu has ever seen. While maintaining a freelance career, Kecia never swayed from her
primary intention to support beauty enthusiasts through example. Fixated on trending fashion,
cosmetics, and high definition technology, Kecia began to train alongside Roque Cozzette,
airbrush makeup aficionado and creator of internationally known Cozzette’s vegan brush and
makeup line. This training enabled her to become proficient in airbrush artistry, and elevated her
skills to accommodate the growing needs of her multi-faceted clientele. This wave of ambition
has expanded her horizons from Hawaii, where she currently resides, to the runways of New
York fashion week, where she assisted creative design director of Proctor&Gamble, Pat McGrath.
Motivated by haute couture, fashion trends, art, and beauty, she endlessly aspires to lift the
vibration of Hawaii by producing gorgeous images for publications such as Honolulu Magazine,
Martha Stewart Weddings, and Four Seasons Magazine, to name a few. Some of her celebrity
clients include Mariska Hargitay, Kimora Lee Simmons, Pierce Brosnan, and Taryn Manning.
Kecia has recently acquired a motivational coaching certification from Global NLP Institute and
is fusing this with her makeup career in order to educate and guide others towards reaching inner and outer beauty. Kecia’s generous spirit, consummate enthusiasm and appreciation for life are evident as she exemplifies creativity, using makeup as her muse.
