As a small child I was always fascinated watching my mom put her makeup on. At an early age I started to oil paint and by the time I reached high school, my friends all wanted me to do their makeup for the prom.
Born and raised in New York, I pretty much immersed myself with art and fashion. I continued to paint and studied oil with a master restorer. I learned color value and blending which is crucial for makeup to look great! I believe that makeup should enhance features not cover them up.
I worked in retail cosmetics as well as salons in New York for many years before moving to Florida. This was crucial to my development as a makeup artist. I was exposed to so many different skin tones, textures, and types of skin, I learned a great deal about how to approach the design of the makeup.
Today, I am a free-lance artist/aesthetician with many years of experience. I love to create and design makeup. When I am not obsessing about eyelashes or brows, I am learning new trends and coming up with fresh ideas.
