From a very young age I knew I wanted to work with makeup. My own mother had a flair for fashion and beauty and would take me to makeup events around the DFW area. I took my first cosmetics job at the local makeup counter while balancing college. From there my love of the makeup world blossomed and evolved even more. I kept working my way up from behind the counter of Neiman Marcus to the fast pace and most cut throat world of makeup artistry, NYC. There in New York I was trained by and worked with Trish McEvoy. She single handly picked me out of several artists to be on her New York team. I then moved on to be the National Makeup Artist, traveling all over as the face of NARS. I was shuffled in and out of department stores world wide. I was catching flights weekly to train, teach, and showcase my artistry skills. The most thrilling part however was the fashion shows and high profile photo shoots and movie sets. I worked in many New York Fashion Week (NYFW) shows including, Marc Jacobs, Philip Lim, Thakoon, Herve Leger, and Marchesa to name a few.
I have worked with many famous ladies including Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Lachey, Hillary Duff, Donatella Versace and her daughter, Jordan Dunn, and many woman from the Real Housewives Franchise.
My work has been featured in Vogue Online, Harpers Bazaar Online, Pop Sugar, WWD (Women's Wear Daily), 360 West, 360 West Weddings, Paper City, Ft.Worth Weekly, Indulge, Getty Images, D Magazine, Dallas Observer, Junebug Weddings, Brides of North Texas, The Scout Guide Fort Worth, New York Fashion week blogs and publications, and many more.
