I started in the cosmetic industry at 14 when I did my first 'paid' wedding in my hometown of Novi, MI. That's when I knew I had been bit by the makeup bug so I harassed my local MAC counter until they agreed to hire me. Over the next seven years with them I soaked up as many certifications that they offered (bridal, fashion show, HD makeup, contouring, to name a few) while getting my BA at College of Charleston, SC. I had struggled with acne myself and that motivated me to go back to school at FCNH in Orlando, FL to add Paramedical Esthetics to my resume. I always dreamt of starting a business where I could use my natural ability to create looks that instantly made people feel better about themselves. Over the next eight years, I focused on boosting clients' confidence, overhauling makeup bags, and making brides' dreams come true. Working with some of the biggest brand creators such as Laura Mercier and Anastasia Soare of Anastasia Beverly Hills has also expanded my celebrity clientele/portfolio. In 2016 I decided to take my brow game to another level and I made the investment to spend a week in Los Angeles to be certified by the best, Lindsey Ta, in microblading at MicrobladingLA. Coming from FL where wedding season is year round, I wasn't sure what to do with my downtime and began to explore my passion for interior design. Having the opportunity to make client's spaces as amazing as their hair and makeup on their wedding day is really just an extension of my esthetic.
In 2014 I relocated to Austin, Texas where I fell in love with a Texan and on Christmas Day he, with the help of my beloved Pomeranian Maverick, proposed. As I look forward to marrying my best friend, I'm thrilled to offer customized beauty, spectacular brows and all the interior design help you can handle!
