I love being a makeup artist. Plain and simple. I get to meet so many fascinating people and I work in many different mediums! Whether I am working on a fashion shoot, a television production, or a monumental occasion in a woman’s life I find it so gratifying! I love collaborating with different teams of people to come up with creative ideas and new looks, and I love to make each client look as good as they can!
Makeup artistry is a beautiful form of expression. Truly an art! Like a painter I use my brushes and the face is my canvas. As a child I loved to express myself artistically. I drew and painted and wrote poetry. I had lessons with an artist who taught me how to sketch and draw and, most importantly, how to pay attention to light and shadow on objects.
Learning these fundamental techniques as a child has made me a better artist today. I use techniques similar to that in my makeup artistry as I highlight and contour my client’s faces, creating symmetry and balance. With color correctors I can create a flawless complexion! With different textures of concealers and foundations I can make my client’s skin texture very soft and smooth!
Fashion trends also play a role in beauty. As seasons and fashion trends change, the style of makeup goes right along with it! It is a must, as a makeup artist, to keep up with the latest fashion trends and makeup styles so that you can better serve your clients! I pay close attention to what is coming right off the runway at fashion weeks across the globe!
Beauty is art as I transform my clients with my brushes and color palettes! Understanding undertones of skin, the texture of skin, what pigments will compliment hair and eye color are all part of this masterpiece that is the “makeover”! It is fun and creative and has been a wonderful part of my life for many years! Let me transform you!
