I’m an Arizona native, married to a terrific Midwestern man and we have two hilarious, inquisitive and joyful daughters together. I love long walks on the beach, sunsets and puppies - just kidding! Ok, but I do wish for world peace, can't resist the perfect red lipstick and love music that moves my soul. I grew up a competitive dancer and still cannot keep myself from movin’ when my fave songs come on. I have lived well, loved deeply, worked hard and traveled afar to get to where I am today.
I absolutely LOVE what I do.
Generally in life and with work, it’s all the same – I help people see themselves as the truly beautiful humans they are. I do that through loving on peoples faces during makeup applications, skin care treatments, waxing and lash enhancements. Aaand through listening, caring, awareness and taking gentle pride in my work.
I’ve loved makeup since I was 5 years old watching my mama in the 80’s rockin’ her blue eyeshadow and bright lipstick. Fast forward 15 years, after I graduated ASU, I moved to Los Angeles to become a certified makeup artist. And later, because so many clients asked me about skin care, I became a licensed esthetician. Jump to present time, I’ve been living and LOVING this industry for 15+ years.
That being said, sadly the beauty industry has a negative side that can’t be ignored. The beauty marketing industry tends to tell –mostly women– what’s wrong with them and what can/should be fixed. I’m not about that. You are perfect, you are enough and you don’t need to be fixed. In fact, you are beautiful and I want to help you, and everyone else, see Your Beautiful. I want to enhance, unveil and glow-up your natural beauty. I won’t change, alter or transform you. Remember (?) because you don’t need to be fixed. However, I will definitely give you the glow-up of your dreams. I’ve got lots of tools in my belt and lots of love to give. So long story short, come see me and let me love on you.
I’m known for delivering on what my clients' want and need. I listen carefully, work quickly and with precision. My instinctual approach to makeup is a natural beauty enhancement but I absolutely LOVE an artistic challenge! I pride myself on being creative when called for, simple and balanced when necessary, and can ride a wave of chaos with calmness. I’m skilled and experienced with different skin types, personalities, and environments. I’m grateful to continue to work with likeminded folks who are professional, appreciate skill and generally are good peoples. I stay on track while keeping my cool, I can have fun and stay zen while delivering under the pressure of time and keep attention to detail. And let's be honest, the details count - especially, when you get to post.
For corporate work: commercials, print, video and live broadcasts are my jam! For private clients: special events and occasions, live appearances and social content creation is where it’s at.
Whatever you’ve got planned, I’m here for you.
I absolutely LOVE what I do.
