I began my journey in makeup artistry in 2007 when I lived in Philadelphia, PA through an apprenticeship under a well seasoned and very talented makeup artist who showed me the ropes on set and taught me so much about what makeup artistry is before you even touch a face. There was so much to learn about etiquette and how to present yourself in a professional manner while still being down to earth and warm.
After learning the basics from one of the best on the east coast, I moved to Denver to work as a freelance artist for Bobbi Brown cosmetics. I truly loved working for one of the most incredible makeup product lines out there. Working for Bobbi Brown was an opportunity for me to teach clients from all walks of life how to take control of their own makeup routine and not feel intimidated by it. I met so many women of all ages and ethnicities and had the ultimate pleasure of helping each of them find the right products for their own lifestyle & personality. My biggest takeaway from working for Bobbi Brown was learning to trouble shoot every single issue that could ever arise in the future of my career and learning to handle any challenge with grace, patience & confidence.
In June of 2014, I moved to beautiful Crested Butte with my husband and two sweet children. I saw an exciting opportunity to finally take the plunge and start my own freelance makeup business here in the mountains and across the state of Colorado. My first few wedding seasons have been an amazing pleasure for me and I cannot wait for the many more to come. With each year, my business and demand is growing exponentially and becoming more and more exciting!
I have always loved the art of makeup and learning new techniques and trends. I also make it a point to know what looks and colors are walking down the runway during New York and Paris Fashion week each season so that I can translate that into my own work and keep it fresh.
When you sit in my chair, I do not see someone who needs to be covered up or changed. I immediately see the beauty that you already possess and it's my goal to simply enhance it. I am here for all of your makeup needs, wether it's to make you look your most gorgeous for timeless wedding photos, help you feel beautiful & confident for a big event or to sit down with you and teach you how to apply your own makeup with confidence.
I look forward to meeting you!
