Becoming a Makeup Artist was a dream of mine starting from the time I would take my little makeup bag to school and practice on my friends every opportunity we had free time in class. This was long before the era of influencers and social media. Just a girl and her Loreal making her friends smile at themselves one face at a time. I have been an artist since I was born but what made me fall in love with doing makeup was the intimate human connection and gratification of seeing someone look at themselves for the first time in a different light.
I chased that feeling right to the makeup counter and began working in cosmetics in 2005. Since then I have had the opportunity to help thousands of women fulfill their idea of beauty through the art of makeup and professional skincare. I believe makeup can be used as a tool to enhance natural beauty, inspire confidence, creativity and foster self expression. Whether I am teaching, pampering, healing others through my work, or creating art it is my mission to create an environment where my clients will feel their very best inside and out.
