My love for makeup never ends. Whether making a bride feel more beautiful than she already is or watching a model strut down the catwalk looking stunning, the amazing feeling I get keeps me yearning for more. Starting with the early days of copying incredible makeup artistry from magazines, I have continued to develop my professional talent for over 15 years. Professionally I began with Clinique and moved on to MAC in which I became Bridal, Runway, and Black & White Print Certified. While at MAC I had the pleasure to work on both the Bloomingdale’s Josephine Chaus Fashion Show and the First Ladies Tour featuring Missy Elliot, Beyonce Knowles, and Alicia Keys. I then moved into Freelancing in various roles….most notably a cameo spot on Fox 5’s Ambush Makeover TV Show. My passion has not slowed one bit and I can’t wait for my next client!
