As a seasoned freelance makeup artist, I have worked with all types and tones and was recently named one of the top makeup artists in Boston.
I’ve been passionate about beauty ever since I could remember. I grew up with extremely sensitive skin and, thanks to my mother who was religious about her morning and evening skin care routines, understood the importance of quality skin and makeup products. As a teenager, I dove into the world of beauty, admiring the glossy pages of Allure, Elle and Vogue, paying close attention to anything and everything that had to do with makeup and skincare.
During my undergraduate years, I was the go-to makeup artist for formals and events. Fortunately by going to an all-women’s college, I never had a shortage of faces or heads to practice on. I found that the communications and business skills acquired from my undergraduate studies would carry over when building my own business. From there, I shadowed and assisted numerous makeup artists in upstate New York and NYC and eventually went out on my own in 2011.
Education is a priority and I continue to further my education by attending professional makeup and esthetic workshops and classes whenever I can. In May 2018, I graduated from the 600-hour Advanced Esthetics program from Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics.
Great makeup starts with great skin and as both an esthetician and seasoned makeup artist, I am able to bring a 360-degree approach to anyone who sits in my chair. I want you to feel as good as you look and am excited to be a part of your journey!
