My passion is to enhance that which is already beautiful!

When you think about makeup as a way to cover "flaws", it tends to make it more of a chore and less about fun and creativity. At Glamour and Grace, our focus is playing up the positives, not covering up the negatives. As women, we are all beautiful in our own way. My passion, is to help you find your own unique, beautiful features and enhance them in a way that looks natural and feminine and is also appropriate for whatever occasion you are glamming up for!

I am a 34 year old mother of 2 beautiful children, with a passion for beauty and makeup. About 10 years ago, I stumbled across a few videos about makeup application. As I watched these videos and realized that makeup application is an ART, I fell in love with everything about it and the techniques used to apply it. I also discovered that I had a natural talent for it. As my interest grew, I continued to watch instructional videos and bought numerous books on the subject. I began asking friends and family to let me practice new techniques or to try out new products on them. My passion and interest continued to grow as I practiced, and eventually became a desire to go professional. So I began my journey into becoming a Master International Makeup Professional ( MIMP).

Over the past 10 years, I have enjoyed learning from many talented and well respected artists in the industry. I have also had the privilege of working with the Alabama Fashion Alliance, with independent designers and photographers as well as numerous private clients.

I live and love everything makeup! Whether you're looking for a makeup artist for your daughter's upcoming pageant, planning your wedding or the wedding of a loved one, planning a 50th anniversary celebration, or if you want to learn about skin care, makeup application and the techniques that you can use to apply it and discover your most beautiful self, I provide it all!

You will find a few photos here of some of my work. If you like what you see and would like to see more or know more about me, call or email me today and set up your FREE consultation (offered in person or via Skype) in which we will discuss what you are looking for and the services and packages that I offer and the cost. (You are under no obligation at this time to make any decisions!)


This is a very limited idea of the services that I offer. Call or email me TODAY to set up a FREE consultation (either in person or via Skype) to get a full idea of what I can offer you and my pricing!

* I provide full makeup services at a great price! Anything that you may require for your special day, Glamour and Grace has you covered!

* I offer a FREE CONSULTATION! I would love to meet with you, free of cost, at a location of your choice, or via Skype. During this consultation, we will discuss your event and the look that you want to achieve. I will provide you with a detailed list of the services I offer and believe you would benefit from, a "skin and cosmetic inventory" to obtain as much information as possible about your personal needs, as well as the packages and per service cost so that you can decide which option would be best for you.

*If, after your FREE consultation, you decide, that I'm the artist for you, we can set up a "trial application", so that you can see exactly what the end result will be. ( At this point, if you are unhappy with my work, you can cancel with a refund of any payments already made).

* Every woman has a very unique skin type and facial structure and not all techniques and products work on everyone. We all need to learn to identify our own individual skin types, as well as how to identify our unique, beautiful features, and how to play them up in a natural, feminine way. In light of this, I also provide teaching sessions. During these sessions, you will learn about your skin type, how to identify your skin type, how it changes, how to care for your unique skin type, which products work best for your skin type, as well as how to apply those products, what tools to use, and different techniques for each application. I can also answer any questions that you may have about your skin, skin care routine and makeup application. These sessions can be done in person, in a location of your choice, my studio, or via Skype if that is more convenient for you. I strive to make this process as easy and convenient for every client as possible.

*Please feel free to ask if there is any service that you might like that I have not listed here. I do everything makeup! So, chances are, if you can think of it, I'll do it!

* All products are provided!
*Very competitive prices! I offer packages and per service pricing.
* Flexible scheduling!
*Flexible setting! We can work in a location of your choosing or my studio or Skype for services that do not require an "in person" meeting.
*Teaching sessions begin with general knowledge and progress as far as you'd like to take it and are very personalized.
*Teaching Session times are very flexible. If you would prefer One or more shorter sessions, or one lengthier one, we can make it happen. It's all up to YOU!!
*I also offer the option (included in some packages or per service) to assist with your cosmetic shopping. Whether you're shopping online or I can meet you at the makeup counter!
*The options are limitless, and I am very flexible. Whatever your beauty needs, I am here to help you, just set up your FREE consultation, lets sit down and figure out how I can serve you best!
