I am a 23, NJ based, certified makeup artist. I have been doing makeup professionally for about a year but have been truly following this passion of mine for many years. I finally took the leap and attended Chic Studios School of Makeup where I received my certification in Master Makeup Artistry with a concentration in Fashion and Editorial and Airbrush Makeup. I am professionally trained and self taught as makeup is a constantly changing industry there is always new techniques to learn and products to try! I offer a variety of makeup services from SFX/Costume Makeup to Bridal and Special Events. There is no event to small to put your best face forward.

What to Expect
I am 23 years old so many clients expect that what I offer is going to be very "instagram" and only relative to my specific age group. I may not have the experience that many artists do but what I do have is the confidence that I know what I am doing backed by an education in this industry. I understand that makeup is a very personal thing and not everyone wants the same look. This is why sitting down and actually speaking to a client is vital to me before applying any makeup. Taking time for skin prep to ensure that the makeup stays looking fresh and healthy until the moment it is removed.
I have been doing makeup since my sophomore year in high school. I'd always had a passion for it which blossomed when I discovered the beauty side of youtube. Throughout high school I assisted with the makeup for the theatre program which included both beauty and special effects makeup. Upon graduating I pursued a degree in communications but always found myself coming back to makeup. When I received my associates degree I took a gap year only to decide to take the leap and head to NYC for makeup school. I attended an accelerated 6 week makeup certification program at Chic Studios School of Makeup where I was taught by some of the best working professionals in the area. The course focused mainly on beauty and bridal makeup with in depth lessons on not only makeup techniques but bone structure, skin tone and texture and worldwide trends. I took classes in basic hairstyling, airbrush makeup and fashion and editorial makeup. The program gave me a well rounded education on all things makeup to add on to what I had been teaching myself over the years.
