I am a classic beauty. I like polished, timeless looks. I love a good smokey eye. you can edge up the most simple look with a pop of color or flick of eyeliner.
Makeup is such an individual preference that there really isn't a “right” or “wrong” it’s more of a “trial and error” approach to find what products and placement is best on the individual face shape. My heart yearns to work with people, not only to get my hands on that raw beauty of theirs, but to also show them that it’s not about the most expensive or raved about item on the shelf, it’s how we maximize our potential with what we already have.
In my makeup bag I love:
Sorella Apothecary- lip balm
Sweet Tox- lippie benefits (plumper)
NYX- butter gloss - “tiramisu”
Ciate London- glass skin tint
Milk blush + lip stick - “perk” and “werk”
Kat Von D - tattoo liner
fluffy false lashes
Anastasia- soft glam II palette
Becca cosmetics “moonstone” highlight
Ciate London- microblade brow pen
Benefit- gimmie brow
Charlotte Tilbury- pillow talk push up lashes mascara
Urban Decay- "legend" pencil
Laura Mercier- candleglow powder
Outside the Studio
I love to travel and explore new places, try new restaurants and coffee shops, and go on outdoor adventures. I enjoy creating with other artists and photographers. I’m a sucker for a sale and have a slight addiction to Marshalls/Home Goods. On most days you can find me with my two crazy kitties Boots and Nash and enjoying life with my husband Mike.
