About Me

I was nominated for Best Makeup Artist Reader's Choice Award for the Austin Fashion Awards 2009 and that set off a whirlwind of accolades as well as celebrity clients. However, I am a former model so working with photographers and models with drive and love for this industry is what I live for. I am a freelance MUA for 9 years and formerly a Fashion Director for Ultimate Face Cosmetics where I attended Ultimate Makeup Academy here in Austin, TX. I went to Baldwin Beauty School to become a Manicurist in 1999 have been in this industry for 17 years.

I am efficient and professional on set. I do not break under pressure. I am always on time and this is not just a hobby for me. This is a way of life and my passion. I specialize in looks from brides to avant garde to high fashion to burlesque.

Techniques such as camouflage, high definition makeup application, reverse contour, and knowing correct makeup application for kelvin temperature are areas that I have experience in.  Burnishing, gold leaf, broken glass, crystal application, and body art are all techniques I have done for avante garde. I can do spectacular and unique nail art as well for photo shoots where we can incorporate these into the concept.

I own a studio in Austin, TX. Available for travel and local shoots. Contact info is as follows:
