About me

Industry Fashion
Occupation Makeup Artist
Location New York, United States
Introduction I am a certified makeup “addict” and beauty lover, who escaped corporate America to pursue a career in makeup. I am now a professional freelance Makeup Artist and Hairstylist working in a variety of areas such as fashion, runway, television, video, etc. I love beautiful, pretty makeup and want to share that love with the rest of the world. My love affair with make-up began at a very early age. Somewhere in my grandmother’s photo collection is a picture of me at 3 years old wearing her wig covered in lipstick and face powder I applied myself. My fascination with all things related to beauty continued to grow with time. Anyone who has know me for years is not surprising that I became a Makeup Artist, I was always obsessed with cosmetics and beauty products!
