I wanted to start a career in makeup the moment I did one of my friends makeup for prom! I love the way makeup can transform, set a mood and influence how you feel. My love for makeup also ties in with my love for animals, as a cruelty free Makeup Artist I can spread awareness about animal testing while I’m doing my job. I’ve been a makeup artist for over 3 years now!

I love seeing my client look at their final makeup and seeing how they react! It makes me love my job even more than I thought possible!

I had the opportunity to provide makeup services to a client that has a medical condition where their eyelashes and eyebrow hairs fall out and I worked with them to create their perfect look and when they saw the final product- full glam with lashes, the look on my clients face reassured me that I was doing the right thing. She kept thanking me and said she felt really beautiful.

My favorite events to work on are weddings, fashion shows and editorial/boudoir photoshoots!

I am very happy and proud to say that I am one of the only lesbian Makeup Artists in the DMV! I’m also engaged to my high school sweetheart and we’re planning a Disney World wedding! We have two beautiful Guinea Pigs and a Ball Python!

I work for myself but I’m also part of the A-List Travel team! We are a media and production makeup and hair team that serves the DMV! We also book for private makeup lessons, blow outs, airbrush makeup, spray tans, updos and event makeup! Our app is launching in January 2017 and you can learn more at !
