A Personal Message from the Artist

Hello, welcome to my website and thank you for your visit. I would like to take this section to tell you a little bit about me as a makeup artist. I fell in love with the beauty industry about 4 years ago. I began paying close attention to how people looked and how that affected them and those around them. 2 years ago, I began applying cosmetics professionally. I have worked on the set of a short film, La Llorona (2014), done makeup for brides, photo shoots, and other special events. Personally, I like to use makeup as an extension of the inner beauty of each and every one of my clients. Each look that I create is carefully crafted based on clients' personalities and preferences. 

My education (English Literature major, Communications and music double minor) has given me the tools to analyze and communicate effectively with clients to provide the best application possible. At Texas Lutheran University, I work with the theatre program as a student makeup artist enabling me to create specific looks based on context and company; also pushing me to work in high stress situations and quickly when absolutely necessary. 

For me, quality of product and cleanliness is just as important as the finished look itself. Each client can be assured that every product that I use has been cleaned and sanitized thoroughly to ensure a healthy and beautiful application. Furthermore, I use high end cosmetic brands ranging from MAC and Makeup Forever to Bobbi Brown and Dior to ensure each application is as luxurious as the experience of a professional makeup application. 

Over the past 2 years, I have dedicated much of my time to studying color theory, fashion/cosmetic trends, and other artists to teach and inspire me as an artist. I prefer, though, to draw inspiration from the client her/himself; reflecting as much of their inner beauty on the outside as possible. Though a makeup artist is not able to get to know each of his/her clients individually, I make it a point to try to learn as much about my clients as possible to truly make them feel more beautiful than they already are. 

"That's why I began doing makeup in the first place: I was hoping that by helping people see the beauty in themselves, I could try and find it in me"
