"I am going to make everything around me beautiful - that will be my life." - Elsie de Wolfe
I've had a love for makeup and makeup artistry for as long as I can remember. As a little girl I was always getting into my older sisters' makeup, and long, LONG before the invention of cell phones I was putting on a dark brown lip and snapping selfies with a disposable camera :) I was doing my makeup for my friends in high school and wedding makeup even before going to makeup school. Makeup Artistry has always been in my veins.
I love that makeup is the easiest, most non-committal form of self expression. You can use makeup to enhance your natural features, or make yourself look completely different. Wear a bold black wing and red lip one day, a colorful smokey eye and nude lips the next. Makeup has no rules. If you make a mistake, wipe it away and start again!
In 2007 I received my certification in Multi-Media Makeup Artistry and Airbrush from Cosmix School of Makeup Artistry in Fort Lauderdale, FL and have been working as a freelance makeup artist ever since. I've worked for Sephora, MAC Cosmetics, and Dolly Monroe Studios in Tampa, FL, and you can currently find me taking appointments at Cloud 10 Blow Dry Bar and Hair Salon. I've done makeup for events such as the Dancing with the Stars Charity Event in Tampa Bay, FL and made up the models of the USF chapter of the Faces Modeling troupe for their amazing Motherland show. Most recently I went back to school and became a licensed Esthetician.
I've worked with countless brides, bridal attendants, and clients for special occasions in both Central and South Florida since 2007 and I love every minute of it!
