Introduction I love the essence of making up. Playing with colors is what inspires me the most. Anyone can put on makeup but it takes true talent to make it work. You have to instill the creativity inside your heart and then, that's when it will flow naturally. One of my favorite motto's are "Repetition is the mother of the skill." If you practice something you love, then you will only get better. I take my work very serious, but I also like to have fun while I work. People ask me "What drives you to create?" I say: "Transformation"
Interests I love everything about beauty...from makeup to moisturizers and more... I love it all. I enjoy assisting anyone that is not aware of what is out there to keep our skin and body looking and feeling fresh. I specialize in party, creative-dramatic, natural, bridal, fashion/hair shows, and makeover makeup. I've been blessed with the natural nail art skill as well, but only use when needed. I get tons of beauty questions from family, friends, clients and other Make-up Artist which I love, and want to share my secrets, tips/tricks with you in hopes of enlightening your outlook on the beauty trend of today.
