"My passion for makeup and the beauty of a smile came to me as a child as I watched my mother battle cancer. She would carefully select her makeup, wig and scarf for the day and when she was done making herself beautiful, she always completed her look with a smile – a finishing touch that I honor today."
As a makeup artist I have had the opportunity to work such talents as Kumail Nanjiani, Katie Nolan, Rory Kennedy, the NFL and many more. Although my love for sculpting and painting will always be a beautiful part of my life, my ability to bring out someone’s best features through the power of makeup and to see their confidence build as they prepare for their important moment continues to be my biggest achievement and joy.
"I chose the cosmetic industry because it was an art form to me. The face is my canvas. I love transforming people through make over's and I love empowering other women and making them feel good about themselves. I am a perfectionist, I won't stop until I feel the work is flawless."
"I think this industry chose me. There were actually times I fought it and tried to suppress my creativity to feel like I fit in more with what everyone else was doing, but I grew up in the industry with family members who were hair stylists, artists, actors, etc. I never found anything that made me as happy as this. I really do love going to work to do makeup every day."
"I don’t follow trends, I try to create them. I am a very passionate person in aspects of my life. I also love to learn and experience new things. I am very outgoing and I try to bring light into every situation."
"I find myself staring at strangers, celebrities on the red carpet, looking for inspiration everywhere. Sometimes it can come as easy as passing a painting. But, my first and foremost goal is to give my client exactly what they have envisioned. I am not happy unless they are."
"I strive to make every client feel special and have a wonderful experience while in my care and makeup chair! I chose this industry to work in because I love makeup and enjoy using it to enhancing people's natural beauty."
"Cosmetology is not just a job for me - it is my lifelong passion. I love nothing more than being able to transform others; I feel blessed every day that I am working."
"I have always had a passion for art, color, form, and design, and makeup is the perfect way to combine those passions. People describe my work as clean and classic, and my personality as warm yet professional."
"The beauty industry is always changing and I'm always ready for a new challenge. Everyday is a new adventure, often a new location with new people to meet. I adore the stories people share with me of their lives and experiences. I feel my clients inspire me to gain a new perspective with every job."
