Position : Makeup Artist
Beauty Background : I’ve been in the industry for 15 years! I started working in salons and department stores at cosmetic counters before makeup was “cool”. I started at MAC Cosmetics in 2008, where I worked with brilliant trainers/artists from whom I gained great knowledge. I’m currently a Field Sales and Education Executive for Anastasia Beverly Hills, so freelancing is my creative outlet. My entire cosmetic career I’ve always freelanced simultaneously - nothing gives me more joy & satisfaction than prepping someone for their special day. Whether it’s a wedding or any other occasion, I love making each person in my chair feel amazing. I want them walking away looking like themselves & feeling confident, beautiful and empowered!
Highlight of my career : I would say the highlight of my career is that I’m able to be apart of so many peoples most important moments of their lives! I love seeing everything come together and giving a memorable experience.
Current favorite bridal trends : Fluffy brows, hydrated glowing skin, flirty lashes, intensified neutral colors.
Top three products/tools I can’t live without : Brow product, eyeliner, and lashes!
Guilty pleasures : I’m obsessed with my 2 year old son! I love being a mommy. I also love binge watching every Real housewife franchise...
