About Me...


My name is Galya Anatolieva Gornishka and I am the founder of Galya Makeup Artistry , LLC. I am originally from Bulgaria and I moved to the USA when I was 19 because I got accepted to college. I graduated from Charleston Southern University in 2014 with a degree in Finance. However, shortly after entering  Corporate America I realized the finance and accounting world is not for me and I want to follow my passion and pursue a career in the makeup industry !

I am now a professional and award winning Charleston Makeup Artist with a team of beauty pros who specialize in Bridal Hair and Makeup!

I want to thank you for visiting our website and considering  our services!I love and care for all of you so much! You are not only booking beauty services with us but supporting my dreams!

At Galya Makeup Artistry, we are dedicated to making you look and feel amazing. Since 2015, I have dedicated my entire career to bringing out my clients' inner beauty. Makeup is more than just colors to me — it’s a chance for people to step out of their everyday and into something wonderful. I offer a variety of services and use proven techniques and top-of-the-line products to transform my clients into the best version of themselves.

 What Makes Us Different? 

Not only do I personally have 10 years of experience, but my assisting artists have been hand-selected and trained by me. This training ensured their abilities to match my expected style of makeup as well as execute previous looks I have done.

We go through a unique customization process for YOU! 

When inquiring for services I  encourage you to email me a few images of yourself without makeup on in addition to photos of makeup looks you have in mind. This helps me plan how to best recreate this look on you! Pinterest is a great resource for inspiration, however, once we see your face, we will help determine what will look best on you. We offer our professional advice and opinion with the sole goal of making you feel 100% comfortable and confident with the chosen look!

We do this with each client! We also like to take into consideration other elements such as your dress and bouquet in creating your own personalized look.

Galya Makeup Artistry  have been in business for 10 years and we are featured on The Knot and  Wedding Wire and published in Charleston Living Magazine. We are  also Google 5 Star Rated and a vendor at "The Big Fake Wedding Charleston 2021".
