Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Selecting a great makeup artist for your special occasion or your wedding is as important as selecting a good photographer but can be sometimes a little tedious. You don't need to try several to realize that you found one. Please feel free to email me and chat with me about your vision and I will give you a consultation prior to working with you. I am talented, professional and have wide experience with all ethnicities and love love love makeup.. Email me and know that you are now in good hands.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. I would like to know how long a person has worked, where she has worked, and get a trial run with her so I can get a feel of what is going to be delivered.
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. In this business, you need to see, you need colors, you need to see if the person is talented. Anyone can say anything they want, if you hire them and you realize that their work is not what you expected, you will be disappointed. Try them first, get a trial run and then you can decide.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. What I like the most about my job is the fact that it allows me to create different looks that suit each person. We are unique individuals and each one of us has unique features.. so makeup needs to be tailored to each person individually since what works for one does not necessarily work for another!
Makeup is like art, but also involves kindness and a great spirit. Makeup is my passion.
What is also very important is that today some makeup artists forget to listen to their client. While I listen to you and I hear you, I am also able to tell you what will not work for you. So you get the best of both worlds.. your dream makeup and my vision, incorporated.
In addition, with each event, I feel I am being a part to an important moment in the life of my clients. I sense the joy, anticipation, eagerness, excitement and stress.. so I plan everything the day before and arrive on time and will be flexible to suit your needs.
Q. What is your greatest strength?
A. I am a color specialist. I determine what colors are your colors. Makeup is not only knowing how to apply makeup: it is also selection of various products for each person, applying makeup with great taste and understanding what your client is expecting from you. I will custom blend various products for each person and design a different look for each individual. Not all two people are alike and what works for one does not work for another.
When you sit on my chair, you relax knowing that you are in good hands, and while my approach is gentle, your completed look will make you stand out in the crowd.
