Meet My Bridal Beauty Team

I am so proud for you to meet and work with my incredibly talented team of artists! It has taken me 5+ years to cultivate a team of artists who are not only experienced in the hair & makeup industry but licensed cosmetologists, estheticians and college graduates but also super fun to be around. 

We can't wait to primp you on your big day!


Jenny Cole


Jenny is an Austin native and no, Jenny isn't short for Jennifer. She first discovered the world of makeup when she received Kevyn Aucoin's book, "Making Faces", and a makeup playset for her 8th birthday.  Seeing the power makeup had to uplift and empower women is what drove her to build a career in this field. Her favorite thing about working with Kara Sánchez Beauty is the opportunity to be a part of the most important day of our clients' lives. Seeing her client's face light up when she looks in the mirror is why Jenny loves coming to work every single day.


Bess DePriest


I did not go to beauty school simply to cater to the vanity of women. It goes much deeper than that. I love to discover the beauty in her heart and match her outward appearance with that discovery.  
have fallen in love with doing weddings because of the sheer happiness that surrounds that day. I am humbled and honored to be a part of Kara Sánchez Beauty. Kara maintains a level of calm professionalism that one hopes to lean on that seems rare in the wedding industry.

My style of hair and makeup is an enhanced version of you with a timeless, classic, lived in look. I've been fortunate to work on the faces of high profile clients including Scarlett Johansson, Amal Clooney, the Kardashians, Faith Hill... each client that gets in my chair is a celebrity to me because very woman deserves to feel stunning.

Diarelys Isla


My name is Dairelys but everyone calls me Dee. If you had asked me as a kid what I thought I’d be when I grew up I would have said psychologist, flight attendant or carpenter, never in a million years did I think I would become a makeup artist. I graduated from Gina’s College of Medical Aesthetics (Ottawa, CA) in 2006 and up until then my makeup looks consisted of a little mascara and lip balm. Aesthetics school opened up my eyes to a whole new world and I’ve never looked back. My favorite part about being a makeup artist is making someone feel beautiful. I love seeing the before and afters and knowing I made a difference in someone’s day
