What to Expect
I am a huge perfectionist and strive for 150% satisfaction from all of my clients. I am a slow worker, but that just means that I am taking my time to make sure the makeup is perfect on the model for the event. I am always punctual, sometimes even 15 minutes early and I hold consultations for big events, weddings, theater shows, and runways. I have had formal training in many high end brands and have many high end products in my kit including MAC, Smashbox, Urban Decay, Laura Mercier, etc. I treat my clients with the utmost respect and I will always remain humble and courteous to everyone - I've been told I have an extremely warm personality :).
I am a professional, freelance makeup artist in the Richmond and Charlottesville area. My love for makeup stemmed from when I was about 11 years old and ever since it has been my passion and a hopeful career someday. I think what makes me stand out from other makeup artists is that I have a strong background in art - traditional painting, sculpting, pen and ink work, and also digital painting, which gives me an aesthetic edge over competitors. I have been drawing and painting since I was 3 years old and that artistic background gives me a different perspective of what makeup is and what looks good and doesn't. I am also a HUGE perfectionist and strive for 150% satisfaction guaranteed for every client I receive because ever single client helps me grow and flourish in the makeup industry.

Influences & Inspiration
Things that have influenced my makeup style has definitely been runway fashion, professional editorial photography, and drag. I love colors, a good smokey eye, and a little glitter never hurts. However, my makeup style is always catered to the model and his/her needs.
