How did you get started in the industry?
I did makeup for my friends for all the proms and high school dances, and then my first big event was my moms wedding in 2015. Everyone was saying “you should do this for a living!” So I created a Facebook page and it took off from there!
What inspires you?
People in general inspire me. I love getting to work with new faces, new personalities, and experimenting with all products, and colors!
What is your favorite part of the job?
Meeting brides and being a part of their big day! You never have a bad day at “work” because it is the happiest day of their lives and everyone is full of joy and love.
What are some things couples should look for when choosing a makeup artist for their wedding?
Definitely look for someone who fits your needs individually! I always tell brides to look like their best selves. I don’t want to put makeup on them where their future spouse won’t recognize them! You want to look like yourself but still feel as beautiful as ever!
What advice do you have for couples planning their big day?
Enjoy every part of the planning process and don’t let it stress you out! Also the wedding is about you so make it how you want it to be and don’t worry what anyone else wants!
