I was in sixth grade when I would secretly spread on a wet n’ wild lipstick over my pout after being dropped off at school by my mom. Although gone are the experimental days of bright blue eye shadow, my love and passion for makeup has continued to grow immensely since childhood. In high school, I would eagerly offer to do hair and makeup for friends and family. Fast forward to a few years later, I started working as a makeup artist for pageants and photo-shoots, each experience giving me so much excitement and satisfaction. Soon after, I received expert training by Ann Ho (founder of AList Makeup) and continued to hone in on my hair and makeup skills. I began my career as a bridal hair and makeup artist and realized my deepest passion in this field. By working on so many different clients with many different ethnic backgrounds, I inherited a deep understanding of all different facial features and bone structures and I use this knowledge every time I work on a new client. I have continued to expand my knowledge and skills by taking workshops to stay up to date about current trends and techniques.
I have had the pleasure of doing hair and makeup on hundreds of beautiful women over the past 8 years of my career as an artist. My biggest joy is being a part of a client’s special event, be it their wedding day or blow out birthday party, and lending a hand in making them feel their most beautiful. The getting-ready process of any event is such a fun time where the ladies get to relax, sip on bubbly and allow me to enhance their natural beauty.
During my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our rescue dog, Buddy. We like to go to the beach, take short hikes and explore new cities together. I also love to travel, eat delicious food and practice yoga at my favorite studio near ocean beach.
