Julie Spoonhunter (Northern Arapaho) “I’m a small-town makeup enthusiast whose passion happens to be makeup. The feelings of joy and confidence it brings are uplifting. And personally speaking for myself, it also serves as a small escape and is even like therapy. In 2013, my interest in makeup just began, and like anyone else starting something new, I didn’t know a lot. I’m self-taught with the help of YouTube videos. Throughout the years, I’ve always learned new things and my techniques slowly got better and better. From 2018 to now, I have provided my makeup services for a few weddings (brides & bridesmaids), prom, and anyone in general who has wanted their makeup done. It’s an amazing and humble feeling to know that I can help women feel beautiful, confident, and accentuate their beauty. The makeup world is huge and to just be in the smallest midst of it makes me feel ecstatic.”

About the looks: “The inspiration for this super intense cat eye with a gold cut crease and a pop of turquoise for the bottom lash was channeling my inner drama queen. For someone to take one look and have the thought of, “Wow, that’s dramatic!” I feel like I achieved that with this look. My insight for the halo eye look was to be more on the softer side of things but still come through with the glam. The dark yellow, orange, red, and deep purple colors came together and created almost like a sunset type of look. I later added the red line across my face to signify the bloodline of being Native American.”
