How long have you been a makeup artist?
I’ve worked in various sectors of the beauty industry for more than ten years. I’ve spent the past five years focusing on makeup artistry.
Why did you want to become a makeup artist?
Makeup makes me feel more confident in my own skin. I chose to become an artist so that I could share that feeling with other women. I encourage my clients to appreciate their individual beauty – not to change it. It’s so rewarding to see a client feel comfortable (and beautiful!) in the skin they’re in.
What is your favorite makeup look of all time?
The Victoria’s Secret Angels. Smoldering eyes, dewy skin, and nude lips. It’s sultry but wearable, too.
Who is your celebrity makeup icon?
It’s so hard to choose just one! Rihanna is one of my favorites because her look is always fresh and modern with clean skin. She can wear any look, and she’s not afraid to experiment.
What is the one product you can’t live without?
A fantastic moisturizer. You’ll never get the quintessential “dewy” look without one. And a little bronzer never hurt anyone!
