How we were trained
A native Californian, born and raised in Hollywood, my introduction to the beauty industry happened somewhat by chance. After years of working in stuffy corporate environments, I longed for something more creative. In 2004, a friend who worked for a cosmetics line offered to try me out. I knew absolutely nothing about makeup but, having always been artistic, I figured I would give it a shot. I literally bought a how-to makeup book, studied like my life depended on it and faked my way through the event. The clients loved my work, the company asked me to stay on and I've never looked back!
Over the past several years I have worked with five major cosmetics lines and I currently freelance in the greater Los Angeles area.
