Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, Roxie Icon discovered her passion for makeup while pursuing a career in music. Her first encounter with makeup was on the set of a photoshoot where she was having promo shots done for a music project she’d just finished. The entire process of being made over from start to finish with brushes, powder and paint intrigued Roxie’s creative persona. Whenever she sat in an artists’ chair she subconsciously took notes.

“I’d always close my eyes and pay attention to the way the brushes moved over my face. Thats how I learned to do my own makeup”

In true Aries form Roxie made the impulsive decision to step out of her role as a musician and into the role of a beauty expert. To hone her new found craft Roxie became a skincare/makeup consultant at Origins Cosmetics. Soon enough, Roxie would be getting request from close friends and relatives for makeup. Her passion fueled her natural talent for enhancing the beauty of women of all ages and different ethnicities. The positive reactions of women when seeing the “AFTER” results of their makeup application gave Roxie the confidence to become a Pro Makeup Artist.

​In the pursuit of becoming the best she sought out to work with the best. Roxie has studied under pro artists Nicky Posley and Marcus MAE Miller. Over time she has mastered long-established skills and techniques that have shaped her artistry. Roxie has worked along with international makeup brands such as REVLON and is a certified regional makeup artist for M.A.C cosmetics.

Motivated to learn and acquire more skill, Roxie applied and was accepted into the nationally accredited “Steiner Institute” where she studied skincare and became a licensed esthetician.

“My goal with esthetics is to have clients look in the mirror at their skin and feel the same excitement as when they see themselves made up”

As an Esthetician, Roxie offers an array of services including facials, Custom MINK eyelash extensions, Eyebrow Microblading, Waxing, Airbrush Makeup, Lash/Brow tinting, and much more. Her belief that a real professional never stops learning keeps Roxie knowledgable and up to date on new beauty trends and techniques.

Roxie’s future goals include releasing her own line of cosmetics under her brand “Beauty By ICON”, a brand that focuses on creating beauty that is classic, timeless and effortless, as Roxie would say “THAT’S ICON!”
