Makeup is my passion and I will work with you to execute the exact look you want. I feel the makeup process should be fun and interactive and the end result should make you "oooh" and "ahhh" and feel like a million bucks. I am a perfectionist and will work to achieve a flawless makeup application.

My love for makeup began when I was a teenager and started helping my friends with their Halloween costumes. I loved the transformation you can produce with makeup. From there, the fascination grew. I have worked with production companies doing music videos and short films. I am very comfortable with being on set and working with multiple clients, time and location limitations and client expectations. I have been hired for special effects make up that includes bruising, blood work, wounds, aging and character prosthetics as well as beauty makeup for actors and bands. I have also worked on several pin-up and retro photo shoots. I am excited to work with you and create that special look you want!
