Thanks for joining me here -- if you already follow me on instagram, thank you so much for your support! If you found me another way, welcome!
A little about me: I'm a working makeup artist in the Bay Area, California with almost 20 years of experience. I lived in New York for years, and was lucky enough to work on some incredible published projects, many seasons of NYFW, and celebrity events -- learning from and working under incredible artists like Val Garland, Charlotte Tilburry, and Tom Pecheux.
A few years ago I left New York to come home to California and marry the love of my life, now I stay home with our 2 year old son and work with clients on the weekends. In an effort to keep pushing myself creatively, I started doing makeup for Instagram, and it been a wild ride so far! Last year my artist series went viral, and from there I have met and befriended so many incredible artists in the online community!
Currently I work as a hair and makeup designer for a great many theaters around the Bay Area, providing wigs, designs, classes and support to all kinds of working performers.
As an artist my career has had a lot of lives, and thus I think I have a very unique perspective on makeup and the many ways it can create confidence and stir creativity. I started my Instagram as a way to explore different techniques and stretch my creative muscles, but there's not really call for an in-depth description of what inspired each look there, and so the blog was born.
Join me here weekly for new looks, conversations about creativity, reviews of products, and other beauty and skin care related musings.
I hope to provide useful info on products, my take on how to recreate trends on your own face, thoughts on how to be your own best artist. There are a lot of different makeup artists and makeup blogs out there, and I hope my point of difference will be the exploration of bravery and creativity in beauty.
Never be afraid to just be you, blue glitter lipstick and all.
