I am often asked what led me to pursue a career in Makeup Artistry, and my story goes beyond my love for makeup. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree where I studied painting, drawing and photography, I began my journey in the beauty industry working for many of the top makeup brands in the world. After spending many years on the corporate side of beauty, I changed directions and now work independently offering on-location makeup/hair services for Weddings, Special Events, E-Comm, Editorial, TV/Film and Everyday Glam. My passion for all things beauty is stronger than ever and I continue to educate myself to stay on top of industry trends. I am a Licensed Esthetician, have certificates in Hairstyling for Makeup Artists and Makeup Artistry for Beauty and Fashion, and have extensive hours of training from some of the top global makeup brands including MAC, Benefit and Lancome.
In addition to traditional makeup applications, I offer Airbrushing, False Lash application, makeup for HD and fantasy/Halloween makeup. The products and brands I use in my kit suit ALL shades of beauty, and are safe, high-impact, high quality and most of all, provide consistent results. I also strive to use brands and products that are cruelty-free and environmentally conscious whenever possible. Some of my favorites are indie brands such as Natasha Denona, Danessa Myricks, Graftobian, Sigma Beauty and RCMA, as well as larger brands such as Temptu, Too Faced, Laura Mercier, Nars, Colourpop and MAC.
