A lover of creams and lotions and potions, Sondra is a 10+ year veteran makeup artist and beauty expert who lives and works in the Washington, DC area. When she’s not wielding her brushes to make women look their most beautiful, you can find her scoring boutiques for those innovative beauty products or instructing a beauty novice on the virtues of the importance of eyeliner and mascara.
She is sought after by many for her honest, yet thoughtful beauty advice and she was recently featured as a beauty and fashion contributor for fashion mag, Jones Magazine!
As a highly diverse and creative individual with an uncanny knowledge of color and makeup application and sound expert skin care advice, Sondra's experiences included creating looks as national and regional makeup artist with fashion beauty brands M*A*C, Bobbi Brown, Nars, and Laura Mercier Cosmetics and face painter for L'Oreal International Designer Collection - Giorgio Armani Beauty and YSL Cosmetics.
Sondra's approach to makeup is a natural one which lends her creativity to an aesthetic that is fresh, modern, and glamorous.
With her love of all things beauty, Sondra started her beauty business as "Backstage Beauty | Makeup By Sondra" in 2001. With a need for a fresh start, she relaunched her brand as "Sondra Lewis Beauty" in 2013 as an upscale and fashionable beauty company that offers services for weddings, formal parties, and fashion events plus professional skin analysis.
Always eager to share great tips on beauty products or help a makeup novice or pro in need of a new lipstick or anti-blemish cream, Sondra's newest venture has now extended to the beauty world's "best kept secret", as a beauty consultant for prestige brand Artistry Skin Care & Cosmetics!
