LA based and internationally published make up artist and hair artist. I work with clients across various media including, fashion photography, editorial, events, music and advertising.
Specializing in beauty, fashion and editorial makeup artistry.
When I first started making up women, I instantly felt the power of it—how it makes one feel and gives one confidence. While I was working make-up artist prior, my training at KRYOLAN Academy has vastly advanced my knowledge in make-up artistry both in creative aspects of beauty and fashion as well as in my understanding of technical aspects of make-up from colors to details. Additionally, having the opportunity to travel the world as a free-lance makeup artist, has given me the opportunity to explore and broaden my creativity and enhance my understanding of the influence and diversity of different cultures.
Having collaborated on many diverse projects, my personal experience in the fashion industry has been deeply enhanced. I have gained extensive knowledge about photography, directing and lighting and I also have developed a substantial skill in wardrobe styling and hair creations. These experiences have helped me to become a more complete makeup artist.
In addition to my work in fashion, I have extensive bridal makeup experience having made up brides throughout Europe, Asia and now in Los Angeles. These experiences have given me a broad knowledge of culturally acceptable and relevant makeup styles and practices.
As I’ve grown in the world of make-up–I have learned to appreciate the power of beauty through individuality—it is one of the great things about makeup and it can be the first step in learning to discover one’s self. I have a deep passion for beautifying and enhancing women's faces. I have an obsession with colors and I thrive when I am expressing ideas through the creative possibilities of makeup. I endeavor to motivate and inspire people around me—particularly woman—to find beauty within their own skin.
I live life to the fullest and I believe that we all have a certain purpose in life. I believe my life's purpose is to explore and exploit life's gift of beauty.
