What is a licensed esthetician?

Estheticians are known as skin therapists. Estheticians are licensed in various cosmetic treatments such as facials, waxing, and makeup application.

Do you have a certain look that you like to use on everyone?

While every artist, including myself has their own style, I still customize all my client's makeup to their individual needs and preferences. I have a few goals: I need for you to still feel like you, and have the makeup accentuate your best features while making you feel confident in how you look and feel for your event.

What kind of brands do you use?

I use many different brands that are geared towards professional use. I enjoy using Viseart, RCMA, Kevyn Aucoin, Senna Cosmetics, Makeup Forever, and Graftobian to name a few. I use high quality brushes from brands such as Makeup Forever and Smith Cosmetics.

I have sensitive skin and I am concerned that I will have a bad reaction to your makeup, what can you do?

I only use hypoallergenic products. If you have sensitive skin, I highly recommend doing a trial because we can do a patch test before your event. If you have products of your own that you would prefer me to use I can definitely accommodate for you.

Do you offer makeup trials?

Yes! I like to call them makeup previews. They are mandatory for brides and highly recommended for non bridal clients. For the makeup preview, I like to have a consultation before we start so that I can truly capture your vision (or help you get to one if you don't have one). I will then begin the luxury skin prep process with a mini facial and proceed with makeup and lashes if desired.

Do you do airbrushing?

I don’t use airbrush tools, but the foundations I use are professional quality and built for HD (You will look amazing in photographs and video)! Any type of coverage feels lightweight and appears skin-like. All of my clients are also impressed with the long-wearing qualities of the makeup.

How can I reserve your services?

A contract must be signed and a 50% retainer must be paid to reserve services for your event. The retainer goes towards the cost of services on the day of your event.

Please contact me to see if I have your date available. I would love to be a part of your special day!
