Q & A
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes. I currently work at a salon and they provide us with continuing education and workshops. I also attend America's Beauty Show and The Make-Up Show annually. I also stay up to date on new and innovative products.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?From a young age I've been interested in art, drawing, painting, etc. As well as beauty and cosmetics. I used to do my mothers makeup when I was 5 and even then I understood blending and using multiple eyeshadows. Of course, with time, those skills advanced. I was doing makeup professionally long before I decided to go to school and get certified for it. After my modeling carrer took off I was doing makeup for photoshoots with a lot of emphasis on pinup, retro, bourdoir, and burlesque when I started doing period accurate hair styling and after that I decided to go to Tricoci University for my cosmetology license. Everything all came together and the rest is history!

When I freelance I also do a lot of weddings, proms, parties, as well as photo shoots and work for performing artists.
