My career in makeup began in my early teens.  Growing up I suffered from a serious case of bad acne and eyebrows that clearly had a mind of their own.  I was constantly being teased.  Finally, after much torture and humiliation my mom was kind enough to take me to the dermatologist and our local MAC cosmetics counter.  A very sweet, twenty-something girl sat me down in the chair and guided me through the entire process of how to apply my makeup.  It was the first time in a very long time that I actually felt beautiful.  From that moment on, makeup was my passion.  I would sit in my bathroom for hours playing with eye shadows, glitters, and lipsticks.  I was always practicing, doing my best to prefect my makeup technique.


In early 2007, I decided to take a break from my college education to pursue a career in makeup.  I applied at the same MAC counter where the very sweet girl had first introduced me to the makeup world.  The day I was hired was one of the best days of my life.  The rest is pretty much history.  I have continued to work for MAC cosmetics on and off for the last seven and half years.  For a short time I also worked for a small yet very prestigious cosmetic company called Le Metier De Beaute.  While working at MAC I received consistent and thorough training on proper technique, theory, and trends.


In October of 2012 I married Nick, the love of my life, and in February 2013 I gave birth to our son Greyson.  However, when my maternity leave was completed I found it very difficult to leave my son behind.  So I made the very difficult decision to leave my job at MAC to stay at home with my son.  Yet, I knew I could not leave my makeup career behind altogether. So I decided to start my own freelance business where I could make my own schedule, work one on one with clients, and still be a stay-at-home mommy.


My clients can always expect a full-service, luxury experience.  My goal is for each client leave my chair feeling like an even more beautiful version of themselves.  I also pride myself on education.  Whether its on better makeup application techniques, or keeping them up-to-date and always looking on-trend.  I want to empower women to love who they are and to be proud of the beautiful features that God gave them.
