"What does it mean to have a personal makeup artist & why should I have one?"
It means that I am able to take any look you find on social media, celebrities or otherwise, and customize the look to fit YOU. Your personality, your style, the occasion for which you are requesting my expert services, are but a few things we take into consideration when creating your vision of the ideal makeup application.
As a professional, I am trained to highlight your best features and conceal any imperfections. The first thing, aside from your cocktail or wedding dress, that people see, is your face. It is for this reason, that having a professional well-versed in camera-ready makeup application is absolutely essential.
As a veteran make up artist, I possess 20 years professional experience in celebrity, bridal, beauty, film and editorial makeup. During my career, I have had the pleasure of working on-site for celebrities such as; Carmen Electra, Devon Aoki, Vivica Fox, Pamela Anderson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Keira Knightley, Marilyn Manson and Dave Navarro. Beginning my career as a MAC artist in 2000, I balanced a career in the retail beauty industry with freelance opportunities. In 2002, I began working with HBO, and soon after, found myself in the middle of NYC volunteering my time for New York Fashion Week. Following the flow of growth, I became a touring artist with various musicians such as Jane's Addiction, Marilyn Manson, Ozzfest, The Backstreet Boys and Warp Tour.
I wouldn't have had these opportunities, if it weren't for the artists and clients, of whom I still respect and love as my inspirations today. The Art of Makeup Collective was born from the networks I established with only the most elite beauty professionals, photographers & multi-media artists in the city.
Relocating back to Cincinnati after working in the L.A./ Las Vegas makeup industry, the Art of Makeup Collective is my response to the overwhelming demand for on-location, personal makeup artists for every occasion & referrals to other beauty professionals of whom possess the same level of expertise and professionalism.
