I am a Los Angeles based makeup artist with 20+ years in the industry. My work can be seen in Allure, Harper’s Bazaar, and Huffington Post. I have developed looks for a celebrity clientele that include, Eva Mendez, Fergie, Nicole Scherzinger and the Jonas Brothers.
Later in my career, I was approached by an old colleague of mine who asked me to join the Kevyn Aucoin team to help build their PRO artistry division. They knew I was a big fan of the brand and five years later, here I am - fortunate enough to carry out my dream job being Director of PRO!
The beauty I capture with each client is different and individual, but for the most part my makeup artistry style is fresh, soft and natural, which clients appreciate. I can also switch it up to “edgy” if working on a campaign or editorial.
Most recently, I have been a lead artist at New York Fashion Week (NYFW) and have worked shows for Rebecca Minkoff, Marchesa, Reem Acra, Milly, and Claire Pettibone Bridal. My passion is for my models and clients to feel as beautiful and unique on the outside as they do on the inside. As Kevyn said, makeup is not meant to fix features, it is there to highlight what already exists.
My love for the industry comes from the creativity. There is inspiration all around, and so many amazing, talented people that I am constantly meeting and learning from. To all the artists out there, new and old… Don’t be afraid to share some of your secrets. We are all here to learn and grow together!
