Hi! My name is Sarah Cormier and I am the proud owner of Moxxie Makeup! I am originally from Southern California and moved to the Cincinnati area in 2001. Since then, I've been working hard to perfect my craft in makeup artistry, you can see some samples of my work in my portfolio. I have been beautifying Cincinnati brides for over 8 years and it's been an absolute dream come true! Bridal is where my heart is, but I've worked plenty of photo shoots, film, theater, and as an artist for MAC Cosmetics - my favorite line! My favorite projects have been assisting on the set of the independent film "A Strange Brand of Happy" (2013) for which I earned an IMDB credit, a Borcherding Buick GMC Commercial, a recent photo shoot for Kroger.com (view published work here and here), and a PBS "Planned Giving" spot featuring a Cincinnati resident. Aside from makeup, I have 14 years of corporate experience from working in procurement, customer service, and operations for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. Inc. I earned my MBA from Thomas More College, with a 4.0 GPA, in 2007. I have an extensive customer service and corporate business background, and I always knew I wanted to own and run my own business. I always knew I wanted to work in makeup, but still had that burning entrepreneurial desire, so starting a makeup company was a match made in heaven!
Jenn Simpson will tell you she started her professional makeup career by accident. Makeup was always something she loved, had a "knack" for, and was passionate about. So much so that she was eventually asked to do wedding makeup for family and friends. From the moment she applied lashes to her first client, she knew she'd found her calling. Her business grew quickly and in 2012, she joined a local bridal makeup company. Since then, Jenn has worked with countless Cincinnati brides and lent her skills to several clients for boudoir, senior, editorial, corporate, and family photo shoots, and she has an impressive portfolio to prove it! Her biggest project to date has been her editorial work for Polly, the Cincinnati-based arts & culture magazine. If you work with Jenn, know her goal is not only for her clients to love their makeup, but also to feel like the most beautiful and confident versions of themselves. Jenn is thrilled to be a founding member of the Moxxie team and can't wait to meet you.
Jenny's passion for makeup began when she was just six years old. After her oldest sister would leave for school in the morning, she would sneak in her room, hide in her closet, and put on her makeup. Jenny has an innate understanding of color theory and for nearly 20 years, has perfected her skills by working with many different cosmetic lines and makeup artists. She has spent the last 6 years working exclusively with brides, many of which have graced her portfolio.
Jenny is a top notch artist that loves beautifying brides. An absolute joy to be around, we love her and know you will too!

Ranee is a long time friend of the Moxxie team and we're so happy she decided to make the leap and join us! She is a self proclaimed beauty enthusiast, mother of 2, and a marketing director by day. Ranee's grandmother worked as a model for Vogue Magazine and also trained other models. Inspired by her and the other women in her family, Ranee followed suit, pursing an education in art and photography and even doing some modeling herself. It was during her modeling years that she discovered makeup as she had to learn it for her shoots. After countless hours practicing on other models and educating herself, Ranee began working in bridal makeup with another Cincinnati based bridal beauty company. She was with them for 5 years and experienced tremendous growth. It was there that she came into her own and blossomed into the outstanding artist her clients and peers know her as today. Ranee adores working with brides and also loves to teach classes! Educating women on how to save time and money with their beauty routine, and showing them her favorite techniques with products from both drug stores and high end lines is one of her favorite things to do. Just like the rest of the Moxxie team, Ranee loves helping people look and feel beautiful on the inside and out. Check out some samples of her stunning work in her portfolio HERE!
