About Me

**NOTE: As of 11/17 I started working a traditional 9-5 Monday through Friday. With that being said unless otherwise stated I will only be able to take on PAID evening and weekend gigs. I do have some availability coming up due to the holiday listed below!
Message me for bookings/reservations today smile.

I’ve had a love affair with cosmetics for as long as I can remember. As the years progressed my skill were sharpened thanks to constant practice and working for numerous cosmetics brands.

I am a professionally trained makeup artist who got my start in 2008; I've worked for: Bare Escentuals, Urban Decay, MAC, and Sephora. I have a background in fine painting; I've been told that it becomes very apparent when I start working on a face. A lot of my techniques and understanding of color theory stem back to my art studio days.

I am not particularly loyal to just one brand, but my kit mostly consists of: MAC, Illamasqua, NARS, Urban Decay, and Make Up For Ever; if it works well I'll use it. I am proficient in applying makeup for proms, weddings, runway shows, editorials, and just about everything in between. Working as a professional model has given me a fantastic understanding as to how makeup should be applied to enhance features for photos. My goal for every single photoshoot is to make my clients look as flawless as possible; which ultimately cuts down a photographer's editing time.

I am personable, professional, and easy to get along with. I enjoy working with others that hold the same character traits. My rates are relatively affordable and shouldn't break any budgets.

[I don't meet up prior to shoots]
I simply do not have the time to do this. 9 times out of 10 getting to the meet up location that we decide on takes longer than the actual brainstorming. I am more than willing to chat about our concepts/ideas via email or PM. I'm quite punctual and have many references available upon request. You're also more than welcome to reach out to the models/photographers I've worked with.

Doing makeup is my primary source of income. I have over 6 years of professional makeup experience, my portfolio displays numerous examples of my abilities. A lot of time, money, passion, and effort have gone into my career. This is far more than a hobby; it is how I make a living, so please be respectful of that.

My rates are incredibly reasonable. I understand the struggle of being a starving artist, so I am willing to work with most budgets. Due to a few unprofessional experiences I am only able to accept cash. No checks, wire transfers, or mailed forms of payment. Sorry!

I am usually open to collaborate with someone that has a KILLER portfolio and a highly imaginative concept. On average I probably only do 1-2 trade shoots a season. You're welcome to pitch your ideas, but do keep in mind that I am highly selective about who I donate my time to. If you're interested in doing a test shoot to see if you'd like to use me for multiple projects I do have a 'test' fee.

[I have a FULL kit]
I get asked frequently if I have fake lashes, a wide range of foundations, etc. The answer is yes. I'm a pro. I always come prepared. Light hair services (curls/straightening) are available upon request. I typically do not carry hair tools/ products with me, so I will not bring them unless it is previously discussed. I do have several hair stylist friends that I can reach out to.

[I'm open minded]
I work with individuals from all walks of life: prom queens, porn stars, fetish models, etc. I am very open minded and welcoming. I don't mind nudity on set.


I have worked with dozens of models, makeup artists, creative directors, and stylists. I try my best to keep this list up to date; however it does frequently slip my mind. Do also keep in mind that some of my clients do not have MM accounts.
