The Girl Behind the Brush

Who am I can be such a difficult question to answer… Today, I find myself being many things from a wife, mom, business owner, daughter, and mommy-to-be (again). Life is very busy for me but most days I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way.

I get asked all the time how did I get into freelancing as a makeup artist and hair stylist. The truth is that I sort of stumbled upon this. I am a Human Resources professional with a business background so naturally I have the business sense. I’ve always considered myself to be a creative person and back in 2013 when I found myself extremely bored at work, I started to look into other avenues to feed my soul.

That’s when I came across Makeup Artistry. I decided to take on a few courses and I instantly loved it. I found myself being challenged in a different way and found that I was constantly learning.

Today, in 2017, I truly feel that I have found my passion. It’s not hard to get up at 3 or 4am to get dressed for my early morning bride. What makes me so happy in my role as an MUAH is I am making YOU happy. Whether you are a bride or attending an event, it’s always exciting to see my clients excited about their day. I consider myself to be very lucky in meeting women of various ethnicities and cultures. When I speak with my clients I really do get to know them in the short time frame that we get with each other but it’s always amazing to hear about world travelers, long loves, how you’ve met your significant other… I pride myself in providing the best customer service I could possibly offer for any of my clients and I’d like to hope that they also feel the same.


On a personal note, I’ve been with my SO for 12 years now (yes, I know!) and we have been married for now for 6 years! We have a happy and handsome baby boy (not to mention he’s a little smarty pants!) and another baby boy on the way. All these boys in my life sure do keep me busy. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family. Life is moving by so fast and my son will be two before you know… pretty soon I’ll also be a mom of two and to be honest, it’s a little bit scary the second time around!

Even with my busy lifestyle, I am determined to be a successful freelancer. I am constantly doing online courses, networking, updating my website… the list is forever long!

Hope that this blog post has given you some insight into my life! Until next time my Beauties!
