25-year-old Stephenville resident Rebecca Sanders is a successful businesswoman, and she’s making a name for herself in the community. Sanders works as both a hairdresser and makeup artists at her family-owned salon, but her hope is to expand her airbrush makeup services in Stephenville and beyond. It sounds like Rebecca is getting her wish. Ali Dee, CMT reality star from the TV show “Texas Women” has asked Rebecca to do her makeup for an upcoming photo shoot. She is understandably beside herself with excitement!
When asked about the experience, she said, “I had always been a makeup nerd. It just fascinates me—I bought books and read about it. I’d watch YouTube videos. I was always obsessed with makeup. And I wanted to learn to do professional make up. My friend was getting married, and she had a lady do professional makeup on her and all of us. I got to talking with the lady, and she told me that I could study under her. Little by little, I got my kit together and bought my airbrush machine. She took me on a couple of jobs and showed me how to use everything. I apprenticed under her for a little bit in the Dallas and Fort Worth area. Then she sent me on my own jobs.”
Airbrush makeup is growing in popularity around the country, and Sanders is hoping to capitalize on the marketplace. She says she has worked a fashion show in Dallas with her mentor, and has been afforded a lot of opportunities as a result of their relationship.
Sanders also has a unique hobby. She’s a Cowboy Capital Rollergirl as part of roller derby. She’s known in the rink as “Dollay Wanna Machete.” Sanders says she saw a flyer for it, and has long been a fan of the alternative sport. So she tried out and she made the team.
It’s clear that when Sanders puts her mind to something, she experiences results. She will be working hard to make her makeup business just as big of a success.
