Mariah Coleman

Lead Makeup Artist

Mariah is a Makeup Artist whose love for all things art and beauty related started at a young age. When her husband and friends pointed out her natural talent for makeup, she realized her latest creative outlet could turn into a career. After leaving the medical field, working as a Phlebotomist, she became a freelance Makeup Artist in Columbus, Ohio.
When Mariah married her husband Uriah in 2017, the makeup artist for her wedding provided her with a beautiful and memorable experience. This memory of her wedding has moved her to "pay it forward" and provide the same type of care and client focused experience that she received on her wedding day.


Lexie Shumaker

Lexie is a self-taught Makeup Artist who started doing bridal makeup professionally in 2020. Her love for makeup began in 2018 while watching beauty influencers on YouTube and after getting her makeup done for her own wedding, where she married her high school sweetheart who she has been with for 9 years! Together they have 2 pups, Koda & Sadie. You can catch her listening to early 2000’s R&B or watching Harry Potter on repeat and never getting tired of it.
From 2017-2021 she went to Ohio State to get a bachelors of science in Agricultural Communications with a minor in Society & Environmental Issues. She currently has a flexible work-from-home position during the week & does makeup on weekends.
In the future, Lexie hopes to own her own all-inclusive wedding venue with a huge bridal suite that includes hair & makeup services! She LOVES love and being included on someone’s wedding day is so special to her!

McKenzee is so excited to be a member of JRice MUA. She sparked an interest in the beauty industry in middle school, and her love for this industry has grown tremendously since.

She falls in love with her craft again & again being that she is able to put her creative abilities into someone else’s hair, and thus empowering them.
