I used to love doing make-overs when I was a little girl. Back then I really played up the blush on my cheeks to a clownish effect. But I first became serious about makeup when I was doing theater. I found it so interesting that a splash of foundation or even brown eyeshadow could completely change the way a person looks. My theater friends were able to transform an 18-year-old face into 40-year old face; how cool is that?!
About a year ago, I started watching videos on YouTube and learning proper techniques. After that, I fell in love!
My favorite thing about makeup is the way it can highlight a woman's best features, and it can be used to express her personality. Makeup truly is an art form and can make a woman feel confident and fierce!
As a makeup artist, my commitment is to bring out the best in a woman—not to cover up 'the worst'.
