what I do:

I Do Makeup to Make You Photo-Ready

I push hard to bring my high standards and a fresh perspective to the makeup industry. After living in Paris, I realized how much I love simplistic, airy and chic style. My signature look is a soft glam that never feels like too much, but always looks amazing in photos.

When I’m not in front of the makeup chair, you’ll find me modeling, styling, or creative directing shoots. I'm always working on my next big WOW project.

At Megan Bertsch Beauty, I’m passionate about helping you to feel authentically at your best by enhancing your natural radiance through makeup. After spending nearly a decade in the makeup industry working for others, I launched MB Beauty to celebrate what it feels like to embrace your authentic self and the beauty that makes every person unique.

Whether you’re obsessed with all things beauty (like me!) and feel a connection with my art and style, or you’re simply seeking a glamorous and clean look for photos or a special day in your life, I’m so excited that you’re here.

Excellence, connection
 & Inclusivity

Hi! I’m Megan and you're like... really pretty.

I’m a self-described art nerd who’s always been into makeup. After a year in fine arts college, I felt like something was missing. So I left to pursue my career as a media makeup artist in Minneapolis at Faces Etc. of Minnesota. I loved the big-city life (and the work in the film and fashion industries that came along with my metropolitan zip code). I traveled everywhere from Los Angeles to Paris before returning to South Dakota, where I earned my esthetics license, as well as a business degree. I sought out to bring everything I’d learned as a big-city makeup artist to my hometown. After five years of working underneath a well-respected mentor in the industry, I became one of the most in-demand makeup artists in Sioux Falls, which led me to launch Megan Bertsch Beauty in 2020.

I Believe in classic glam, clean lines, and Light-Filled Spaces.

If you visit me in my studio, inside Vanessen's Hair Design you’ll be quick to see that it’s my happy place.

From the clean, bright walls to the light that bounces around the mirror-filled space. I love serving up an intimate luxury beauty experience within these four homey walls.
