Hey Fans! So I've been getting a lot of questions about my history of work, when I started and how I got into make-up. So I thought I should give you guys a little history about my career as a make-up artist. During the summer in 2003, a friend of mine suggested we go to make-up school together, just for fun. We never thought both of our careers would really evolve into being make-up artists. We decided to go to MUD (Make Up Designory) in Burbank mainly because it was less expensive than most the schools out there and also because it was nearby. We had an amazing teacher who worked in the industry that gave us a lot of tips and tricks into becoming great make-up artists. From then on, I fell in love with make-up and realized I was actually good at it. While in school, we both got a job at Naimies Beauty Center in Valley Village as sales reps and make-up artists. Working at Naimie's definitely gave me the best hands on experience I could ask for. I got to play around with some of the best brands and figured out my likes and dislikes. In the meantime, I began working as a freelance make-up artist, working from home. In 2006 (if I remember correctly), I became a freelance artist for Laura Mercier for about 6 months. I have to say, it became one of my favorite brands! Since then, I have been on my own doing my own thing. I really love what I do and always give my 110% in everything I do. I was mainly an event make-up artist but I have opened up and expanded my works to the studios in the last 2-3 years. Make-up was always a side job for me, as I was going to school and working full time. I finally got my MBA last year and have been working in Finance at The Walt Disney Studios since 2007. BUT, I hope to eventually focus on make-up as my career and pursue to do what I love to do best! I am extremely happy with my current clientele and hope to meet you all at some point or another. Thank you for all your love and support! If you guys have any questions, please feel free to ask and I will gladly respond. <3
