Meet the Team


U’ilani is a born and raised Hawaii girl. Her passion for makeup and hair began on the stage as a professional entertainer for many years. She has since taken her love of makeup off stage and into her daily life. I am U’i, meaning I am beautiful, is about having women feel as beautiful as they look.

I am inspired by the beautiful women around me and this beautiful place that I call home. I believe that makeup shouldn’t mask a woman, but reflect her own beauty and surroundings.
I pride myself in creating connections and friendships with my clients. I feel that getting your makeup and hair done should be a relaxing and fun experience. My clients can rest assured that I use only the highest quality products, making cleanliness and attention to detail paramount. “The love is in the details”-Oprah. And I love what I do.
