About Me**NOTE: As of 2016 I am NOT currently taking trade work. This is a major source of my income. I have numerous examples of my abilities in my portfolio, which display what I am capable of. If you are looking for someone to trade with I'd recommend reaching out to a newer MUA.**
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 currently enrolled in Cinta Aveda's prestigious esthetics program with an estimated July 2016 graduation date.
I am not particularly loyal to just one brand, but my kit mostly consists of: MAC, 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.
I do not work for free. Doing makeup is my main source of income. I have over 8 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 during the time of our shoot. No checks, Square invoices, wire transfers, or mailed forms of payment please.
Collaborations/Trades: I am currently doing SELECT trades. Keep in mind that I am very particular on who I decide to trade with; this is contingent on a photographer's capabilities and concept.
Tests: All tests/trial shoots will require a testing fee. If you want to see how I work that's fine, but I still require a payment for my time and supplies.
[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, but I am not a licensed hair professional. I typically do not carry hair tools/ products with me, so I will not bring them unless it is previously discussed. If you are looking for a more elaborate hair style I can refer a few cosmetologists that I have worked with.
[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.

Credit NotesI 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.
