I have always loved makeup and it's transfomative powers. I didn't start my journey as a makeup artist in a traditional way. I studied Art Education at Massuchsetts College of Art. I had always loved to paint portraits and realism pieces. It wasn't till I was well into my program that I even considered the professional world of makeup. I had always been fascinated with it and loved to spend hours in makeup stores specializing in makeup. I started doing my friends makeup for events and realized my true passion. It was just like painting, you could create highlights and contours to the face to change the structure. You could enhance the features you want and soften the ones you didn't.
I have spent countless hours studying makeup and techniques used by some of the best makeup artists. I completed my certification at Los Angeles MakeupSchool gaining more insight to the industry. There is constant change with new ideas and fresh new approaches to application and techniques.
Making a client happy is the most rewarding part of what I do. It still excites me when someone looks in the mirror after getting their makeup done and is astounded by how beautiful they look. Makeup is not always about changing but truly enhancing an individuals features to feel their best. It is a field that allows me to constantly evolve and change with the times. I can't imagine doing anything else.
