I entered the fashion world at the age of 18, working as a model to support myself while living abroad in Guadalajara, Mexico. After 2 years, I returned to the U.S. to attend Empire Academy of Makeup in Costa Mesa, California, where I graduated in 2008 after extensive training in makeup application with a focus in print and bridal. Upon returning to Mexico, I soon found myself traveling throughout the country collaborating with amazingly talented people in beautiful locations. Many photoshoots later at the close of 2010, I decided it was time to return home to Whatcom County. Now based out of Lynden, WA, my focus is largely within the bridal industry and special event makeup. It brings me so much joy to share my knowledge and educate others on the art and transformative powers of makeup.
