My passion for makeup started at the age of 19. I was married, a new stay-at-home Mom, a little overweight and trying to figure out my new life. During all of these life changes, I decided I needed a new hairstyle. I booked an appointment, ready with my photo to show the stylist. After the hair cut, I was devastated! I had a mullet, serious! My sister and I called a friend to help fix it, in order to fix it she had to cut it even shorter to blend the style. I looked in the mirror and thought, I look like my dad! Thankfully, my sister had a natural talent for hair and makeup. After I calmed down, she offered to do my makeup; providing advice where needed. I loved it! That experience made me realize makeup could help enhance my self-confidence. This also created a new obsession. My sister and I started booking weddings together for family and friends. The word quickly traveled and soon we had our own client base; several of which are still clients today.
Over the last 18 years, my experience and diversity in the makeup industry has flourished; freelancing for brands such as Sephora, MAC, NARS and Estée Lauder. Touching every face possible and doing an enormous amount of trade work. This allowed me to build my portfolio, my network and my experience. It’s never felt like a job, it’s my love and my passion!
After spending 13 1/2 years in corporate banking. I am now a full-time, freelance makeup artist and licensed esthetician, specializing in bridal, commercial and print.
