“When a woman feels beautiful, it is the most empowering feeling in the world, confidence allows you to take on adventures you never thought you could or would. And I knew I wanted to pass that on to others,” Pradas says.

Today, Pradas is available for on and offsite spray-tanning and offsite makeup services – catering to each and every client’s needs.

Kristyn Pradas was introduced to the world of beauty by her mother at a very young age. As Pradas remembers, her mother was always buying the best skin care and makeup – and visiting the best salons to get her hair “permed”. It was then that Pradas began playing dress up with her mother’s clothes and makeup. When Pradas entered her adolescence years and developed terrible skin, she too knew where to go – back to raiding her mother’s makeup drawers all over again! All she wanted to do was hide her skin – which then led to trying new shades of eye shadows, new styles of applications, products and more. That’s when her world and love of makeup really took off!

Pradas always loved how she felt when her makeup was done – giving her that boost of confidence needed during the most awkward times in a woman’s life, adolescence in particular. Knowing how great she felt after experiencing it herself, Pradas knew she wanted to help other people feel just as good about themselves. Not only did Pradas become passionate about doing makeup – more importantly, she wanted to teach women how to apply their own makeup, so that they too could learn some simple techniques to use at home.
