EXPERIENCE & TRAINING
Growing up I always loved playing with color, painting, and eventually makeup, not only on myself but also on my friends and family. However, I never considered it as a career until I attended the Paul Mitchell school to pursue my Esthetics's license where I realized my true passion for makeup artistry and decided to pursue it further. I love all of the beauty industry, from magazine ads to wedding parties. I am a total believer that everyone is beautiful in their own way, and makeup is a bonus that should only accentuate that beauty. When doing makeup, my esthetitian's background makes me focus on making the skin flawless and shaping the eyebrows to one's natural features. In this fast pace and ever changing industry there is a need to constantly learn about new techniques and products and in order to stay current I regularly attend makeup shows, seminars and classes and really enjoy this continuous learning.
I put my kit together after interning with a couple of my favorite bridal makeup artists, as well as the seminars that I attended, and learned the products that really worked. The brands of cosmetics that I use are very eclectic and must last long in order to be able to withstand long events; they include: Mac, Urban Decay, Nars, RCMA, Temptu, Chanel, Laura Mercier, Model in the bottle, Scindinavia, Estee Lauder, and Bobbi Brown. I encourage bridal trials because this allows us to have the time for a consultation as well as a trial that we would not have on a busy wedding day.
In my free time I enjoy hiking, cooking, reading, watching movies and spending time with my husband and son.
