I've been part of the makeup artistry world for about 15 years. My career began with MAC Cosmetics for 7 years. There I received instruction from artists/trainers who'd been in the industry for years, as well as learning from outstanding artists that I worked with - like Patrick Boltinghouse (Faris), creator of Vanity & Glamour Cosmetics. I continue to enjoy learning new tips and techniques, especially from the artists I work alongside today. I specialize in glam and beauty makeup looks. However, a very close second for me is any look that involves zombie makeup or building wounds on the skin!
My most thrilling moments doing makeup have been doing makeup backstage at New York Fashion Week 3 times, becoming an IMDB listed makeup artist (for one movie), and getting to work with several Presidential candidates, politicians, and well known TV personalities over the last few years.
I am now the owner of Vanity & Glamour Cosmetics as well as an artist. I am fortunate to do what I love and love what I do!
