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 had a lifelong passion for hair and makeup and the creativity that comes with it. This God-given passion fueled me to open my own studio, Your Makeup Expert, in 2005. However, before my career as a professional makeup artist, I was a wife and stay-at-home mother to three awesome children. They are now all grown up and don’t tell them, but I’m kind of looking forward to the grandma years!

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. We have grown up together, endured together, and fought for the wonderful relationship we now have.

I love empowering ladies to be their own kind of beautiful. I would love to be at your next event to share some wisdom, love, life, and beauty.
