Celebrity Makeup Artist / Speaker / Educator / Consultant

Empowering, Encouraging, and Uplifting

Life is hard… but you don’t have to do it alone. We are here to overcome obstacles in life, strengthen our weaknesses, face our fears, and live a life of intentionality together! I want to challenge your thought process, encourage your growth, and empower your purpose so you can step out and live life beyond your comfort zone.


What Do You Do Exactly?

I’m  glad  you  asked!


I love teaching to understand easy pro makeup techniques, the importance of focused branding and visual content, polishing your professional and personal image, all while gaining valuable insights for your business, ministry, and digital marketing content.

I’m excited to share the knowledge and expertise I’ve acquired over more than two decades in the production and media industry as a celebrity makeup artist with you.

Makeup & Media

Being a celebrity makeup artist, image consultant, and hairstylist, I’m here to help you create or polish your personal/professional look easily and simply. Don’t get frustrated with getting older; it’s a blessing. However, as we age, the “rules of beauty” we once lived by have been shattered. Let me show you how easy it is to polish the new, wiser, and more confident you. With over 20 years in the production industry, my clients have included presidents, sports stars, A-listers, and yes, you too. Let’s work together to customize a look that is polished and uniquely you!


Hey there, I’m all about making things fun and friendly, but still keeping it professional. Need a hand with your personal, ministry, or business’s visual content?

That covers everything from your brand to social media, videos, and websites – all the stuff your customers and clients will see. If you do, I’ve got your back!

I can check out where you’re at, figure out what you need, and help you navigate the ever-changing world of media


I absolutely adore chatting with ladies of all kinds – teens, mothers, business professionals, speakers, and leaders – well, basically women of all ages.

Whether we’re starting with the basics ‘Worst Cooks Style’ or going all-out ‘Properly Polished’ in makeup and branding, I’m here to spread the love.

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 any amazing, super-hero kind of man for 30 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 of all ages, speakers, and business leaders to be their own kind of beautiful. I would love to consult, coach, educate, or be at your next event to share about personal and business growth tactics, marketing and media strategies, nuggets of life lessons, unconventional wisdom, and/or beauty tips and tricks.

The truth piece to Peace

I woke up this morning with this phrase ringing in my head, “If it costs you your peace, it’s too expensive” Ya’ll I’ve SAID THIS! 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.
