"I have been a self taught Make-up Artist for 7 years and counting. I attended Paul Mitchell Academy in the winter of 2012. The make-up course that was offered there DID NOT meet my expectations. So I withdrew and moved back to Fargo. I started at Josef's School of Hair Design in the spring of 2012. The make-up course there was being taught at a basic skill level which I feel I already accomplished and wanted more of a challenging experience. I took it upon myself to furthur my education and skill level through all available resources and continue to perfect my craft daily. This has been my passion since I was little and knew this was my calling in life. You will NEVER leave my chair unsatisfied. I will go above and beyond to make your experience worth your time and money. I will make sure you are as beautiful as you were once you entered the room but with just a kiss of makeup. I also assist my clients with beauty tips, advice and secrets. I graduated MUD (make-up designory) master of make-up artistry program in LA with a 4.0 to chase my dream of a special fx make-up artistry to the movies and television shows. I hope one day to teach make-up and maybe open my own school that just strictly teaches make-up since sadly there is no make-up artistry school in the midwest to my standards.
My make-up skills have been featured in weddings, proms, burlesque shows, photo shoots and films (one film that won an award at the Portland Film Festival. In LA I demoed at comic con, worked at Emmy award winning Steve Prouty fusionfx shop (Mrs. Doubtfire) worked on many films, Tonedeaf, Scars (with producer Jackson Rathbone of the Twilight series) assisted professionals like international makeup artist Shanna Cistulli, worked alongside sculpture and makeup artist Michael Shawn McCracken, Ray Schaffer, I was special Effects makeup artist on the short film Hijab. My work was published in the Makeuo Designory’s schools 2018 catalog.
Here are just a few of make-up products I use: Mostly M.A.C, Stila, Make-up Forever, BH Cosmetics, Nars, Sephora, Benefit, BenNye, Urban Decay, Anastasia Beverley Hills, Laura Mercier, Marc Jacobs, Tarte, elciè foundation, Sugar pill and Bobbi Brown.
Brush sets I use: M.A.C, Morphe, Sigma and Bobbi Brown
Thanks for reading about me. I hope to work with you one day. Take care.
The thing I love about Make-up is there is no limits to what you can do other than the limits you place on yourself."
