Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. I do everything from makeup artistry for runway, print, film, special events and skin care.
Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.
A. Airbrush makeup for the Miss Teen USA and Ms. USA 2012 winners was an exciting event. The ladies were very sweet and lovely to work with.
Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Make sure your prospective makeup artist has been formally trained with and Aesthetics License and Makeup Certification.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. The better the canvas the better the makeup application. Try the Fountain of Youth facial using ultrasound and micro-amping to deeply exfoliate and tighten the skin.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. Why is Airbrush Makeup better?
A small amount of makeup is sprayed in a super-fine mist depositing micro dots that “sit evenly” on the skin. Its superior control allows your to get the coverage you need exactly where you need it. The result is a flawless, natural, and undetectable coverage, using the very least amount of foundation possible. Airbrush makeup is water and transfer resistant lasting up to 24 hours. Because there are no applicators coming in contact with your skin it’s completely sanitary, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. The joy my clients receive when they see the results.
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. I am passionate about the field of Aesthetics and am genuinely interested in helping others gain confidence in their appearance. I continually keep up-to-date with the ever evolving trends and technologies in skin care treatments and makeup. Come in today and let me create a personalized skin care and makeup routine that surpasses all your expectations!
Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. I have been doing makeup for friends and family for years before I "officially" got in the business. I've been an artist as early as I can remember and now I get to draw on a human canvas. I get no greater pleasure than showing people just how beautiful they can look. Some people say it's superficial what I do, but I say if I can make someone confident and happy in their own skin that is more powerful than anything.
Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?
A. Every opportunity I get I do additional training . . . after all you never stop learning! I make it a goal to do at least two new classes a year. I am ever evolving in line with the up and coming technology.
Q. What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?
A. The further you can get into the "medical" side of aesthetics the better the results you will get from your treatments.
Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?
A. This is a very fulfilling career! The amount of pleasure I get from making people feel good has been unsurpassed by any other path I've taken.
Q. What is your greatest strength?
A. Applying cosmetics so they look natural is actually more difficult than the fun artistic looks that draw our attention to makeup. When working on personal and/or special events, it's always a bigger compliment to my skills when people notice how beautiful the person is as apposed to how good the makeup looks. I always take care in enhancing the best features of every client, while deemphasizing the less desirable ones.
