I've been doing make up and hairstyling for over 17 years. I began my journey in a glamour photo studio, grasping the concept of photography and corrective make up. I later achieved the title of Head Make-Up Artist and Photographer at Cover Look Photo Corps, where I wrote the Training and Make-Up Instructional Tutorial. I then worked as a freelance make up artist for MAC Cosmetics, and started my freelance make-up/hair styling business in Hawaii in 2004. My experience includes high fashion, cover shots, pageants, bridal, and prom make-up/hair. My work with high fashion photographer Russell Tanoue have been featured in Hawaii's Midweek columns and promotion ads. I worked with various models and utilized my creative freedom to create multiple looks for clients. I truly enjoy my craft and enjoy other forms of art (painting/drawing), which allows me to do various styles and techniques, collaborating with my clients to obtain the look they would like to achieve.
I recently moved to from Las Vegas to California and would like to build a new client base and would like to venture more into theatrical make-up. If you're interested in working with me, please message me for a quote with a description of what you're looking for.
Additional photos coming soon.
