Yours truly was named Pro Makeup Artist of the Month by L'OREAL PARIS...such an honor amid so much talent!
Some details from my Q&A session:
Q: How did you start your career?
"I was artistic as a child and I always loved to draw. I started to take art classes and designing in my teens, and then started exploring with makeup. While I worked in the music industry, a makeup artist came in with one of the performers. I watched J.J. Jacobucci apply makeup that fit the artist's personal style. She really catered to her individuality and I decided I wanted to do that same thing. Not long after, a friend needed help at a counter on Black Friday at Nordstrom for another L'Oreal brand, Shu Uemura and that was my humble beginning."
Q: When did you get your first break?
"It was the first wedding I booked. The bride did not have a bridal party, so all eyes were focused on her. I felt a tremendous amount of pressure knowing the look I created would be captured in pictures and treasured for years to come."
Q: What is your favorite L'Oreal Paris product?
