Why is hair and makeup your career?
I love enhancing ones true beauty. I also love to teach others how to feel confident with their looks and how to use makeup and hair as a tool to showcase their best features.
What is it about working with brides/weddings you enjoy?
Weddings are so full of joy and happiness and to share in such a special day is really rewarding. The best part for me is chatting with the bride on her wedding morning, getting her ready for her biggest day and making her feel and look amazing.
What is your favorite style to do?
Well I have a more dramatic style... cat eyes tend to be my favorite and I love to shape brows! I also adore vintage or retro looks of such icons like Marilyn Monroe , Veronica Lake and Bettie Page just to name a few.
What has been a memorable moment with one of your wedding clients or in your makeup & hair career?
One year I had the opportunity to travel to 2 destination weddings one of them was a very close friend. I was there as a guest and as her personal stylist. What a wonderful day, we were in Maui with 30 degree weather and everyone was so happy and gorgeous.
What inspires you?
Art, people, life and my 2 baby boys Maximus and Leo. Celebrity, well Lady Gaga and Madonna would have to be at the top of my list!
