Being a wife and mom are the most important things that I will ever be or do in my life . Being a makeup artist is fun, and God has given me the opportunity to have some amazing people sit in my chair. From famous models to Grammy nominated artist, blushing brides, everyday moms, sisters , aunts and daughters it doesn’t matter who you are or what you do, if you sit in my chair you get a piece of me .
Makeup is about beauty and in order to be a good makeup artist you need to know where beauty comes from …you should be known for the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit… I’m still working on the quiet part ! I started my makeup career with M.A.C Cosmetics in 1998 and I am very grateful to have been apart of such an extraordinary family of artist .
Since then I have been given the opportunity to work behind the scenes of runways ,music videos, commercials and print , but what I love doing the most is teaching! I love showing tricks and tips to everyday women and aspiring artist. Things that were taught to me and things I have experienced in the work field myself. I love learning and researching new products and techniques so that my knowledge for this industry is always fresh and new . I am also a Mortician with a Mortuary Science Degree and work on many high profile homicide cases for the M.E . I specialize in face reconstruction and Decomp Skin Theory . I understand that what I do are 2 completely different fields but in all honesty they lend to a greater understanding of authentic Beauty & a deeper respect for Life .
I look forward to meeting you whether it be at a Makeup City class or in my chair…
