Why is hair and makeup your career? Ever since I was a little girl I was passionate about beauty, makeup, hair… I would paint all my dolls faces and cut their hair. It was always something natural for me but as I grew up I ended up working in many fields without feeling satisfied about what I was doing. After taking sometime of work after having my little girl I decided it was time to pursue my dream career… something I was good at and enjoyed more than anything! I went to an amazing school and got my certification. They say if you love what you do you'll never work a day in your life, thats exactly how I feel about my career. I love every minute of it and love making people happy with what I do.
What is it about working with brides/weddings you enjoy? Bridal is something I truly enjoy. It's a wonderful thing to be part of such a special day in a persons life and to be involved in making the Bride feel as beautiful and as confident as she can be. It's truly an amazing feeling.
What is your favorite style to do? I love doing every style. My work is not defined by one specifically. A natural fresh look is always flattering but doing a dramatic or glamourous look can be so beautiful and is always fun as well. I like creating a look for each persons individual personality and taste.
What inspires you? I'm a very colourful person so colour always inspires me, nature as well, beautiful sceneries, flowers and the combination of shades and textures.
