About Me"To be beautiful and natural is the birthright of every woman"- Elizabeth Arden
I've been fascinated by makeup since I was little, and to this day I remember purchasing my first mascara. As a hobby, I paint with oils, and I think of makeup as an extension of my art. I love the excitement associated with photo shoots and runways, and they help to fuel my creativity.
I love to experiment with color hence my nickname is "skittles", but I can tone it down when needed. I work well under pressure and I am pretty easy going which helps me get along with pretty much anyone.
I've been in the industry for about 5 years now, but I mostly worked for makeup counters and did some side jobs ranging from weddings, proms, and photo shoots.
I would love to expand my portfolio and network with as many people as possible, and eventually turn this into full-time passion (I don't like the word job). That said, I do have a 9-5 right now so I need at least a week's notice; I just want to keep a professional and conflict free relationship.
Since I am trying to build up my portfolio, I am willing to do some TFP, but I would like to get recognition for my work.
PS. I'm not looking for random FR, people that I personally FR or accept their FR are individuals that I would love a chance to work with. I know this can be a cut throat industry, but please keep in touch so we can actually collaborate=)
