“Pretty is something you’re born with…BEAUTIFUL…That’s an equal opportunity adjective”
A little about me: I have always had a love of makeup, but believe it or not, I was a tomboy most of my life. I can thank my mom for forcing me to do girly things and join the cheerleading squad in junior high that allowed me to find my inner girl. Makeup also helped me with my self esteem because I was bullied all through elementary school. I wasn’t pretty or cool. At 15, my mom took me to a MAC counter at Macy’s for a makeup lesson and I have been obsessed ever since. I would pay to get my makeup done at least once a month so, I can learn their techniques. I didn’t start doing other people’s makeup until after I had my son at 23. I was introduced to pinup modeling and received compliments on my makeup by photographers and other models. I was even asked to help some of the models with their makeup. Two photographers, Deeliteful Images and Eric Helios offered to do so, before and after shoot to help me build a portfolio. That’s where my career began 10 years ago. I started working with other photographers and did makeup for fashion shows to build up my portfolio. I was voted Makeup Artist of the Year in 2010 by RAW Artists. Shortly after, I applied at MAC and worked there for several years. I learned so much and it really perfected my techniques and helped me grow as an artist. I left MAC about 3 years ago and have been working freelance on the weekends every since to supplement my day job. I think I will continue doing makeup until I no longer can. It’s an art and passion for me.
