My Passion - Cosmetics.
I love finding the fix for people. It's truly an awesome feeling when you can make somebody feel better about themselves in a matter of minutes. To me, makeup artistry is not about masking issues one may have with their physical appearance; It's about making yourself feel better for YOU! Self-confidence is such an important trait to have. I love making people feel like they can be their best selves.
I've subconsciously been able to take a few glances at somebody and have a list of things that would make them look better. An avid Advanced Placement art student throughout my years in elementary, junior, and high school have blessed me with an ability to truly understand color, highlights and shadows. About 7 years ago is when I really started to experiment with different shades, finishes, and trend products. I really began to understand how to transform my product through line, texture, and tonality.
I am best at correcting pretty much anything you dislike about your face. I understand proportion and undertones. I play off of all your factors. I mainly look at things in two ways... 1) What's the thing you hate about yourself that you want to fix or 2)What do you love about yourself that you want to accentuate. I have worked with people of all ages, races, and sexes. I am best at customizing my technique and tools to suit my clients face and diminish their problem areas, while still creating drama, depth, and classic sultry femininity to every look.. while infusing your personal style into the look.
I love music.. cliche, but I truly do feel like it has the greatest impact on fashion, art, and makeup. My makeup artistry evolves as I go through different phases of what I'm listening to. Growing up with my mother, the artist, and my father, the music buff, was a huge influence in the form of my personality and style. I've mainly resided in the Chicagoland area, but I have also lived in Frankfurt, Germany and Anaheim Hills, California. Being in so many different places with different cultures gave me a bit of a different swagger.. I'm pretty unpredictable, and you can tell by how many different looks I play with on my own face.
Beautifying is what I am good at.. and I have never loved something so much in my life. I have tons of drive and motivation to be as successful as I want to be. I do this for the love of art. I do this for the love of intensity. I do this for the love of being the best version of me that I can be.
