Vail, Colorado Makeup Artist

When you look beautiful you feel beautiful and that’s the kind of happiness I try to give to women everyday.

4 years ago I was diagnosed with Invasive Melanoma and with this tragic news, I decided to take a break from my Design Consulting business and spend time with my husband and littles. During this time and after much contemplation I decided to follow another passion of mine, beauty and skincare. I started working at Cos Bar in Vail, CO - a luxury multi-brand beauty retailer of excellence. During my time at Cos Bar, I had training with Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani, Chantecaille, Clinique, La Prairie, Cle De Peau, La Mer and Sisely. Wow, so many talented and inspirational makeup artist I had the pleasure to learn from and hone in my expertise.

My passion is to make women feel beautiful in their own skin, and that comes from confidence. I love this quote from Bobbie Brown, “I believe all women are pretty without makeup, and can be pretty powerful with the right makeup.” I love people and I am passionate about teaching women how to apply their makeup correctly so that they can feel confident and beautiful each and every day. I look forward to meeting you and can’t wait to enhance your beauty! When you look good, you feel good.

  • "Brook is the best... No, But really! She was a key member in what made my wedding day so stinkin' special. One week before our big day, I received a call that the original hairstylist and makeup artist would not be available for mine and my momma's services. We were bummed, but had to get into gear Quick to find someone to get us dolled up for that day. Luckily, Brook was available and having never met her (we live in Texas, but flew to Vail for the wedding), it could have been a nerve wracking experience. She was so pleasant over the phone and went into great detail for our consultation. We were comforted by her confidence and sweet nature. When the wedding day finally arrived, she not only did an amazing job with our makeup, but she was an absolute doll to be around. I would 100% recommend Brook for her makeup talents as well as the personable experience she provides to her clients. "

  • "My daughter and I had our makeup done by Brook Richards for her wedding. I can’t tell you how pleased where were and how beautiful we looked and felt. Brook is so sweet and talented. She took the time to get to know us and we are forever grateful."

  • "I met with Brook at the CosBar as I needed help updating my look. I do love makeup but Brook walked me through the proper way to apply it, and it was so interesting to see how applying what I had differently changed my looked and made my skin glow! Best tips… Take care of your skin, hydrate, put lotion on then wait a bit before applying foundation, apply liner across the entire upper lid and use eyeshadow under the eye for a softer look. I especially loved learning how to apply bronzer correctly! Loved working with Brook and highly recommend her."
