What to Expect
I come equipped and fully mobile with a directors chair and ask that I be given 30minutes prior to our agreed upon time for my workstation set up. I ask that I be provided a well lit area as well as a table or station to use.
I BEGAN MY CAREER IN THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY OVER 10 YEARS AGO BEHIND A COSMETICS COUNTER . DURING THE TIME I SPENT THERE I TOOK ADVANTAGE OF EVERY OPPORTUNITY THAT CAME MY WAY KNOWING IN THE BACK OF MY MIND THAT I HAD NO INTENTION OF WORKING RETAIL MY ENTIRE LIFE . OVER MY YEARS BEHIND A MAKEUP COUNTER I WAS GIVEN SEVERAL OPPORTUNITIES TO WORK WITH AND BE TRAINED BY CELEBRITY ARTIST'S SUCH AS:
-ROSS BURTON (celebrity artist who eventually BECAME PERSONAL MAKEUP ARTIST TO OPRAH)
-DARAIS (CELEBRITY CLIENTS SUCH AS TYRA BANKS, ASHLEY GREENE, REESE WITHERSPOON, JULIA ROBERTS AND THE LIST GOES ON)
AND ALTHOUGH I HAVENT BEEN BEHIND THE COUNTER FOR SEVERAL YEARS I HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK SIDE BY SIDE WITH NATIONAL CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST MANUEL VILLEGAS ( CELEBRITY CLIENTS SUCH AS MINNIE DRIVER, SOPHIA VERGARA, MINKA KELLY AND BONNIE SOMMERVILLE TO NAME A FEW).
AFTER I PARTED WAYS WITH THE DEPARTMENT STORE ENVIROMENT I FOUND MYSELF WORKING FOR SEPHORA WHERE I TOOK A STRONG INTEREST IN EDUCATION AND EVENTUALLY BECAME AN EDUCATION LEAD. IN THIS POSITION IT WAS MY RESPONSIBILITY TO GROOM AND DEVELOP ARTISTRY SKILLS, TECHNIQUES, HYGIENE STANDARDS AND CLIENT SERVICE ON AN ONGOING BASIS (THAT'S JUST THE ARTISTRY SIDE!) WITHIN THAT TIME I WAS ALSO ASKED TO ASSIST WITH THE LOUIS VUITTON BOUTIQUE SHOW (WITHIN THE STORE) AS WELL AS ASSIST WITH A RUNWAY SHOW HOSTED BY GRETCHEN ROSSI (REAL HOUSEWIVES OF OC). BOTH OPORTUNITIES OPENED MY EYES TO A NEW GOAL WITHIN THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY AND I FOUND MYSELF WITH A STRONGER DESIRE TO FOCUS PRIMARILY ON ARTISTRY .
WHILE STILL WORKING WITHIN THE STORE I WAS ABLE TO MEET WOMEN WHO WANTED MORE EDUCATION AND SERVICES PROVIDED TO THEM WITHIN THE COMFORT OF THEIR HOMES AND IT BECAME OBVIOUS THAT THERE WAS A HUGE DEMAND THAT IS STILL UNTAPPED . I DECIDE TO FREELANCE AND TAKE MY PASSION IN A NEW DIRECTION AND QUICKLY FOUND THAT I feLT confident with THE KNOWLEDGe and and expertise that i had developed over the years AND I decided that i would embark on a solo project where i can have creative freedom and a stress free enviroment without sales goals and time constraints.
ALTHOUGH I STILL FREELANCE FOR A COSMETIC BRAND FROM TIME TO TIME , I NOW FIND MYSELF taking progressive steps IN BUILDING MY PERSONAL BUSINESS WITH SO MUCH TO BE GRATEFUL FOR AND SO MUCH TO SHARE . I TAKE PRIDE IN WHAT I DO AND ENCOURAGE EVERY WOMAN TO EMBRACE WHO SHE IS AND NOT WHAT SOCIETY'S PERCEPTION OF THE "PERFECT" WOMAN SHOULD BE.. . it is my hopes that i can work closely with you for whatever the ocassion and share what i love to do the most.... mirror the beauty within .
