Thank you for visiting my page...
So about me... I am a native of NJ and now reside in Charlotte, NC with my wonderful boyfriend and two spoiled,yet totally adorable, dogs. I spent several wonderful years between NJ and NC residing in South Carolina becoming an adult (or something like that). I am also a HUGE South Carolina Gamecock fan, an avid wine drinker, a coffee addict, a food lover, a proud Italian, a traveler, a reader, a daughter, a dog lover, a Christian, a dancer, a yogi, a friend, a sister, an Aunt, a college graduate, and of course, a Makeup Artist :)
This journey for me started as a young girl. As a child, you would find me painting, drawing, coloring, crafting, etc.. Art and beauty have always fascinated me.The power of creativity is beautiful. I loved watching my Mom "put on her face", do her hair and dress up for the day. As long as I can remember I was playing in her makeup. Playing with colors, trying things on and playing dress up. As soon as I received a green light to wear makeup, the passion grew more. I was involved in dance and theater for a good part of my life, so dressing up became second nature to me. It was so fun! In college I was always experimenting with makeup looks on myself and others. I was determined to get my first makeup job, and at 20 years old, with a little faith and determination, that happened. I was hooked and never looked back. I will never forget the first day a woman told me how beautiful she felt, thanks to me. WOW! The smile she had was priceless. I realized that this was my calling in life. I still get this same feeling today, a decade later, with every woman who sits in my chair.
Along this BEAUTIFILLED journey, I went to cosmetology school, received alot of wonderful training, got my hands wet in some high fashion and print work, worked alongside some amazingly talented folks and fell completely in LOVE with Brides! I love all forms of beauty work, but I do consider bridal work my true passion. I admire the work of so many talented people, some of who I know, some I hope to know. I use a wide variety of professional products and I am well versed in skincare, as well as traditional and airbrush makeup applications.
