NYC-based makeup artist, Baltimore and DC trained
I worked with MAC Cosmetics from 2009-2013, and freelanced independently from 2011-2015. I took two years off after grad school and moving to New York, and am ready to bring my talent to the five boroughs and beyond.
I have trained with industry makeup artists at Towson University, passed MAC basic certification, and I also have a threading certification from Von Lee International School of Aesthetics. I'm professional, personable and fun to work with and I seek to create an empowering makeup experience that's ALL about my client! Together we can create a makeup look that's perfect for you.
Working weddings is a passion of mine--the energy is inspiring and unlike any other job! Bringing elements of teaching to my makeovers is something I value, but I also offer full-out lessons so I can share my passion with you, if you'd like to do your own makeup or pick up some cute tips for the honeymoon.
Natural, effortless makeup is my specialty, but I can always help you make your look more formal or upscale if you like a little more drama. Whether you're makeup-challenged or makeup literate, I always walk you through a look so we can slowly build it up to the level you like and are comfortable with. Even if you've never had your face done, don't be afraid to reach out! Most of my brides prefer understated makeup, and I can refer you to past clients who were also new to makeup when they approached me.
About 95% of my kit is MAC, but I also use brands like Dinair, NARS, Makeup Forever, Urban Decay, Ben Nye, eEyelashes, OCC and Benefit. I'm constantly watching makeup tutorials and reading beauty blogs and consider myself something of an expert on hot beauty products, although I also have my tried and true products that will always be a part of my professional kit! Everything I choose for my kit is chosen for its longevity, and you have my guaruntee that your makeup will last through sweat and tears.
