If you know me, you know I am way into beauty and self-care. From an early age, I wanted to learn everything about makeup... So I did. I immersed myself in all things makeup. I noticed even at a young age that makeup was a passion of mine. I am fascinated by makeup. It is an art that can literally transform. I am currently in school for Master Makeup Artistry because you can never stop learning. My favorite type of looks to create are those that highlight my client's natural beauty and enhance their best features.

Sunless tanning… where do I begin.

Being half Danish, I am naturally very fair skinned and always wanted to have that bronzed beautiful olive skin tone. (You always want what you don’t have, huh?) Until, in sixth grade my best friend came to school looking like she came back from Hawaii. She then told me about some tanning lotion that makes you tan overnight. I immediately went and purchased some of my own and the rest was history. I am still mesmerized by the instant feel good factor that a spray tan or a makeup look brings you.

So when I decided to go freelance and start my business, I didn’t have to think twice about what I was going to offer. Makeup and spray tanning. It’s what I’m good at. It’s a dream to be a makeup and spray tan artist and do what I love. I wanted to provide quality over quantity with blend beauty services.

I was born and raised here in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I attended Orono schools and loved it. When I was 16 I worked at my first tanning salon ever, right in Long Lake. That is when I was introduced to airbrush tanning and of course, became obsessed with airbrushing. Junior year, I knew exactly where I wanted to go to college. I applied early and was accepted. Just like that I'm 18 and living in California to attend my dream school, The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. I received my business degree in Beauty Industry Marketing and Merchandising. I like to think of it as the business side of beauty. While living in the O.C, I worked at a very well-known tanning salon. I was spray tanning celebrities and very high-profile clientele. I had an absolute blast. Next, I moved to Los Angeles to graduate! Naturally, I chose to work at one of the trendiest tanning salons in LA. I loved it! This was my favorite job . A handful of years later, I had done the CA thing and decided I wanted to try something new. Being the free-spirit that I am, I then moved to Austin, Texas. I made new friends, experienced a new state and I continued my journey in the beauty industry working in med spa's and high-end salons. Many airbrush tans and makeup brushes later, I opened Blend Beauty as a freelance artist!!

I am beyond grateful for all that God has blessed me with and am so thankful for my wonderful family and friends.
