My motto: “Magnifying the Beauty that Exist’s… That’s what I do!”  and that’s really it! In fact I do truly see the beauty in all women even when they do not see it in themselves. I thoroughly love the Art of Makeup in all of its many facets. One of my greatest pleasures is inspiring confidence in women whether it be with a new set of Lash Extensions, a bit of concealer, or helping another beauty professional to achieve their own potential in this industry.  I get a kick out of men who think that we do all of this for them… The truth is we do it for ourselves and I do this for YOU!

This art form is so amazingly versatile in that I can make someone look glamorous, goth, dangerously sexy, innocent, horrific, or just have a simple healthy glow! My heart pours joy into every kind of makeup application I do… it honestly does. Lash Extensions and Beauty Makeup are a big part of my day to day work, but I also love doing SPFX Makeup like making a zombie or a werewolf (you can find a selection of some pictures in my SPFX Studio page).

I take pride in my work and look forward to many more opportunities to apply my craft on new and fabulous people from all cultures, all professions, and all walks of life and I look forward to meeting you too!
