1. When did you first become interested in makeup?

Like any girl, I was pretty much always interested in makeup, I think. For as long as I can remember I was getting into my mom's makeup bag, sitting at her vanity and putting on her makeup. 

2. Did you go to school for this?

No. Everything that you see today is all self-taught through practice, experimentation and lots of reading and researching. It is something I am passionate about and feel an urge to constantly learn more and do more. Feel free to browse around my Portfolio of work

3. What brands do you use?

The beauty world is constantly changing, adding new lines and products. I find it important to to try and find lots of different products, both affordable and high end. While I like to shop on a budget, when working with my clients, they need quality. In my freelance kit you will find products by brands like: MAC, Sephora, Nars, Benefit, Too Faced, Urban Decay, Smashbox, Cover FX, Elizabeth Arden, L'oreal, Nyx and Annabelle. 

4. Why did you decide to pursue a freelance business in Makeup Artistry?

Five years ago I posted my very first video on YouTube. My friends were incredibly supportive. One day, one of my girlfriends mentioned that her friend was getting married and was in need of a Makeup Artist for her big day. "Why not?" Once that wedding happened, I had an outpour for more Weddings. The rest, as they say, is history. 

5. What is your advice to a beginner with makeup who wants to learn more?

Practice truly does make perfect. You won't nail that cat-eye in one try, but after a few weeks of daily practice, you will have it down! Also, YouTube! If there is a beauty related question or specific makeup look you're looking for steps on how to complete, I guarantee YouTube has it. 

6. How can I learn to do that Smokey Eye/Cover a pimple/Make my eyes stand out (etc.)?

As previously mentioned, YouTube is such an amazing source for information! You can just look up "Smokey eye look" in its search engine and within seconds there will be about 500 different options for you to choose from. Right at your fingertips! Might I suggest my channel? 

7. I am getting married and I am interested in contacting you for availability. How can I do that?
