I think beauty comes from many things, and makeup is there to help you feel prettier and give you the confidence to strut your amazing self down the street. If you love blue eyeshadow, than rock on with your bad self. But, if you have a question, then venture out into the cyber space world and ask me. I won’t tell you to throw away your beloved cherry red lipstick, but I might advise you to wear it on it’s own, and not with that fabulous blue eye shadow. For me, I believe that beauty is something that is ALL INCLUSIVE. It is about inner beauty, confidence, and honoring yourself and your uniqueness.
As long as you wear a big smile on your face and attempt to laugh as much as possible I am sure you will glow. Learning to find the humor in life and laugh is half the battle. It’s the only beauty secret I truly believe in. No amount of shimmer powder can ever fix a sad face. Believe me, I’ve tried.
I have been lucky enough to now make this passion my career. I have over 17 years of experience as a freelance makeup artist and industry expert working in all aspects of the business, including fashion, film, television and print. My time in the makeup artistry field has led me to work on diverse projects such as music videos for Nashville Capitol records, work with CNN, the NFL channel, the Sci-Fi network and events such as the St. Jude Runway for Life, and NY Fashion Week. My artistry has been seen at movie premieres, as well as the Emmy and Oscar award ceremonies. Some of my advertising clientele has included work with Jenny Craig, and Gucci, and my celebrity clients include Carrie Fisher, Julie Christie, Valerie Bertinelli, Jason Alexander, Debi Mazar, and Emmitt Smith.
My most recent projects includes an on-air guest spot on TLC’s What Not To Wear, helping to create a new modern makeup look for Miss America, and as a reoccurring on air makeup expert on the E! Entertainment morning show That Morning Show.
