Hi there, I’m Dorothy

Dorothy and Jimmie - DorothyStrouhal.com

aka “Pinky” … I am an open book, no-frills-but-way-glam, straight-forward kind of girl! I try not to beat around the bush too much. It just confuses me!

I have owned my own studio, Your Makeup Expert, since 2004.

However, before my career as a celebrity makeup artist, I was a wife and stay-at-home mother to three awesome children. 

I have been married to the same awesome man for over 28 years! WOO-HOO! I wish I could say it has always been a fairytale, but there were days it was a nightmare and other days a fantasy.

I love empowering women business leaders to be their own kind of beautiful. I would love to be at your next event to share about business growth tactics, marketing and media strategies, nuggets of life lessons, unconventional wisdom, and/or beauty tips and tricks.

I’ve liked the post, shared it to my stories, … I’ve cheered this phrase on! But is it Biblical? I mean it sounds good, but is grounded in Truth? A lot of times we exchange the definition of peace for comfort.

Peace isn’t something you strive or work for, it’s given and grown.
