a bit about bashful

Christly Taylor Ellison
Bashful Beauty Boss


Hey beautiful, I'm Christly, makeup artist and hairstylist with ten years experience in event makeup. My journey began in theatre school - true story - where I developed a love for beauty behind the scenes. After graduating from the University of Houston with my BFA in Acting, I began working for cosmetic brands while playing on movie sets in New Orleans. Deciding the film actor's life just wasn't for me, I moved on to the corporate world here in Houston and continued to work for makeup clients on the weekends. After years of office burn-out, I decided to dedicate my 100% of time to what I adore most; making magic with makeup and hair for weddings, lifestyle shoots, and beyond.


I am a proud Lead Artist at Butter Artistry in addition to working for my wonderful Bashful babes. Also! I obtained my Cosmetology license in 2020! I truly believe education is life-long and I'm having so much fun at this stage in my learning life.


When I'm not playing with hair and makeupyou may find me catching a show downtown or even performing in one as an improviser. My beloved pup, Tinsley, and husband, Sean, get my heart.

Now enough about me, I can't wait to meet YOU. Drop a line and let's have a beauty bash!
