I Love Makeup! That pretty much sums it all up!
I have always loved everything about makeup ever since I was five years old. When I was a little girl to my mothers dismay, I used to play in her expensive makeup all the time. She would always ask me what was on my face, and I would tell her dirt. My mother would then say, "Well, why is it so sparkly?". I would respond, "dirt is sparkly sometimes."
I was finally lucky enough to have a makeup lesson with a makeup artist when I was 12. She showed me how to take care of my skin and put on makeup step by step. I immediately started wearing makeup everyday and experimenting with looks. I fell in love with the art of makeup. Makeup allows me to be creative and artistic; which is a huge part of my being.
I feel so blessed to have a job I love and allows me to flexible and creative. The best part of my job is helping other women look and feel their best. Making others feel good is what gives me the most satisfaction; that I can make someone feel beautiful and put a smile on their face.
I have been lucky enough to have been in the business for over 15 years. I have done makeup for celebrities, brides, performers, singers, dancers, drag queens, stage shows, fashion shows, photo shoots, bodybuilders and body and face painting. I am an advocate of education and life long learning, which is the key to end poverty and is the road to independence. Every year I try and learn a new trade,skill or technique. Over the years I have honed my skills in: airbrush makeup, custom blended foundation, eye brow arching, advance eye shadow technique, full body waxing, brazilian waxing, full body massage, facials, body and face painting, spray tanning, threading, teeth whitening, and individual lashes.
When I was younger I always wanted to be a celebrity makeup artist, that was my goal. As an adult, I have had a chance to work with celebrities and it is truly awesome! However, it does not matter if I'm doing makeup on a celebrity or a house mom. I always feel blessed and honored that someone hired me, my talent, my skill; to make them feel beautiful and enhance their beauty for their special event or day.
