    Doris was tasked with making me and my friends Snapchat filters for Halloween. I had high expectations after having seen her website, and I am happy to say she surpassed those expectations! My friends were a bit hesitant to book an artist for this, but all of them said to me after "I know I resisted the idea, but you were right, she did a phenomenal job" and I could not agree more! I gave her a picture of what I wanted to be and I ended up looking better than the picture. If I ever need a make up artist again I am calling Doris!!

    Q & A

    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I really like to get to know my customer before I start. I really want to know what is their comfort level. How do they normally wear their makeup. It's great they provide a picture so I know what they're looking for, but I really want to know what their makeup experiences is. For an example you may see a dress in a magazine you like and you want that dress, but perhaps when you buy the dress, it doesn't look the same and you're not happy. The reason for that is because the dress color may not look best on you or the dress is suited better for the model and perhaps your body type is different and it doesn't look the same. So that's the same for makeup as well. I like to modify makeup if I feel the customer needs it. I'm pretty intuitive with people that I work with. I can almost guarantee how much or how little I need to adjust the makeup to please the customer.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      As I mentioned before I did go to modeling school and after modeling school I went to makeup school in Toronto where I'm from and graduated with the highest honor of the school. I studied mostly fashion and print makeup. Then I moved to Hollywood and studied more for film, TV, special effects, corrective makeup, ethnic makeup and you name it I learned it. I won best makeup artist my school year. Then years later I decide to learn airbrush makeup. I studied for that in Costa Mesa.
    • What types of customers have you worked with?
      My background is mainly in film, TV, photography and working with celebrities. So I'm very trained and conditioned to work with demanding schedules. I've started to work more with clients not related to the industry as of recent and find it much more relaxing, since it's on our schedule. It feels more laid back and fun because there's not the same pressure. You feel like you can be friends with your customers since it's a more casual vibe and not having 20 people scrutinizing your every move. Don't get me wrong, I still love doing my shoots. This type of opportunity on Thumbtack is a welcome change.
