+HOW DO YOU DEFINE TRUE BEAUTY?
True Beauty in my opinion is more than a person's physical appearance. It comes from within. As a makeup artist and hair stylist, it is a personal goal to make every person I touch feel empowered. More confident than ever before, especially better than they felt before sitting in my chair. Makeup and hair is temporary, the way you feel about yourself is permanent. I strive to provide the best experience possible for my clients. It starts with our initial conversation. I remind myself that customer service is key, and my job is to make the client feel comfortable with me. I don't focus on their makeover as most people may think I do. My objective is to enhance my clients total image inside and out. True Beauty is just that, reassurance, confidence, the ability to be yourself without question and love how you look while doing it.
+ WHAT TOOLS WOULD YOU ADVISE ASPIRING MAKEUP ARTISTS TO UTILIZE IN THEIR OWN ENDEAVORS?
A mentor, makeup and skin care books, and invest in makeup training courses. Take advantage of internships and shadowing positions. Proper products.
+HOW DO YOU THINK CREATIVITY CONTRIBUTES TO THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY?
In so many ways. You can't be apart of the beauty industry and not be creative. Your creativity makes you an artist. It's what sets you apart from everyone.
+ FAVORITE MEDIUM OR MAKEUP BRAND?
Well, there are so many! My go to's are Black Opal Cosmetics, Anastasia Beverly Hills, and Mac Cosmetics.
+ WHAT IS ONE QUESTION YOU WISH PEOPLE ASKED YOU ABOUT MORE OFTEN?
Do you love being a Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist. .... I absolutely Love It!
