I love people, cultures and exposing myself to the rest of the world. I have been doing make up as long as I can remember. I did my first wedding make up ten years ago for my best friend and loved it so much I haven't stopped. I have been doing professional freelance make up ever since. Running a referral based business for so long, it is important to me everyone I work with is very happy. Because I enjoy working with people, I have a natural ability to communicate and understand what a person wants. It gives me great pleasure when the person looks in the mirror once I have finished with them and feels more beautiful about themselves.
To perfect and advance my knowledge, I went to Westmore Academy and received my certification in fashion and natural bridal make ups, special effects and airbrush in early 2008. My degree in Graphic Design and photography contributes to my understanding of colors, light and shadows. I am great with eye make up of all sorts. I can do individual lashes that are extremely natual looking.
I have taken special classes and continue to educate myself in air brush make up techniques and have experience doing it for weddings and special events. Airbrush make up is the most natural looking and is longer lasting than regular make up.
For weddings, I start with a consultation. Please contact me and feel free to ask any questions.
