When I met Joy, she was very professional. She made sure I was very comfortable and asked what look I wanted. I loved how she applied my makeup, she was very gentle and thorough with each step. All areas of my face was evened out, covered, and matched to my skin tone. I always have a hard time finding the right shade, but she had the perfect shade. Everything looked natural and beautiful! My husband said, I looked GREAT!! I can't wait to use her again!

I pride myself in helping women feel and look their beautiful best. When working with a client, I specifically match products to their skin, tone, and condition while using my professional skill & talent. I carry products for all skin types, provide a flawless, airbrushed look to one's look detailing each feature of the face. I have thoroughly trained other makeup artists through the 24 years, that I have worked within the beauty industry. Practicing sanitary procedures is a must when working with a client. Being a freelance makeup artist, I travel to the client's desired location. Makeup is my passion, art, and life! I love to create a beautiful masterpiece.
