Despite years of naysayers claiming the impossibility to maintain a thriving career based in Atlanta, GA., Yolonda Frederick-Thompson has broken all the rules! Her work keeps her globe-hopping all over the U.S., Europe, South America, Asia, Africa, Australia and the Caribbean. She remains a creative force in entertainment since launching Yolonda’s Face Value, Inc., a make-up and beauty imaging business in 1998.
Yolonda first fell in love with makeup while attending Central Methodist University where she earned her BA in Communications and Theater. She went on to refine her craft through on-going education with industry giant, Aveda while working as a Senior Master Make-up Artist and Show Team member with the highly celebrated Van Michael Salons for more than 7 years. She set the tone for her burgeoning freelance career by breaking onto the scene as the Key Makeup Artist for Grammy Award winning trio TLC!
Yolonda's passion for makeup and the need for convenience while working with her A-list clients inspired her revolutionary invention, Glam.Or.Ring™. "Always having to carry around so many products while working the red carpet or on set, you need everything to be easy access in order to be efficient". This clever and aesthetically appealing product will change the way we carry our necessities. Glam.Or.Ring™ houses a full multi-use makeup palette that's compatible with a range of skin-tones and 3 brushes neatly inside an iPhone cover. What's more it sizes down to several iPhone models and has a credit card/ID holder, wrist strap and a lighted mirror!
