How long have you been doing makeup? And how did you get your start?
I have been doing makeup since 2014, when I got my first makeup job at MAC. Shorty after that (2016), I launched my website and went freelance.
Who are some people that have inspired you throughout your career?
I got a huge chunk of inspiration from working on counter and picking up skills and techniques from my co-workers. I also get inspired everyday by the amazingly talented artists I follow on social media.
Describe your signature look?
My signature look would have to be a neutral glam look. So a full face of a soft highlight and contour, lashes and a flesh toned nude glossy lip.
What is the most memorable moment you have had while doing a client’s makeup?
The most memorable moment would be when I helped a lady who was very insecure about her facial scars feel more confident. She was so happy with the outcome that she began to cry. That made me feel good inside.
What are your must-have makeup and beauty products? Why?
My must have beauty products would have to be a good skincare collection because without good skincare, good makeup is less achievable.
How do you keep up to date with current trends?
I keep up to date with current trends through social media. Mainly Instagram.
What new items are you currently obsessed with?
I am currently obsessed with the new Fenty Beauty loose highlight and the Fenty glossbomb in 'Diamond milk'
