WHO AM I ?
I owe my beauty inspiration to my late grandmother who I called “The Beauty Queen,” she would never leave home without her lipstick. I entered the industry in 2011 as a model but quickly discovered my passion for makeup once I started to do my own makeup for photo shoots. My artist journey began at John Casablanca’s Modeling and Career Center as both an educator and agency artist where I taught classes from beginner to experienced in skin care, eye brows, make-up application including contour and highlight, non touring, and makeup for photography. During the course of my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work in the industries of TV & film, editorial with New York Moves Magazine, Southern Living Magazine and celebrities in fashion such as Betsey Johnson. Most recently assisting celebrity makeup artists working with Fifth Harmony for the Billboard Women in Music awards, Simple Skincare, and NYFW on the Beauty Blender Pro team.
Before moving to New York City to follow my passion, I earned a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Business Administration while working in Clinical Nutrition at Yale New Haven Hospital. Once in NYC, I gained certifications in Airbrush and Fashion & Runway Makeup from Chic Studios-NYC. Exploring deeper into my artist journey in 2017, I joined Val Garland’s prestigious makeup artist program: Makeup Mastered where I will travel abroad to create new work alongside artists from 80 different countries.
Makeup isn’t about changing who you are it’s about enhancing what you have. Make a difference through beauty, spread kindness, and to paint faces all over the world. Eternal beauty comes from within.
