MEET THE ARTISTS:
WHERE DID YOU GROW UP: Palmdale, CA- North of LA
WHEN DID YOU FIRST BECOME INTERESTED IN MAKEUP?
I first became interested in makeup when I was a teenager doing makeup for proms and what not. I didn’t know then that I would be able to make a career out of something I enjoyed so much.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LOOK THAT YOU’VE CREATED:
My favorite is from a shoot I did with the Fly Twins for Schon Magazine. There were a couple of subtle changes in each photo but overall each look was clean, fresh, glowing skin with small details of red lines and liner worked in. I loved this so much because it encompasses my overall work so well. My favorite looks of my own tend to be super minimal but have the simple details that tie the whole look together.
WHERE DO YOU DRAW INSPIRATION FOR YOUR MAKEUP STYLE?
I don’t like to limit my inspiration to one thing. I am constantly being inspired by my everyday surroundings from different mediums of art, textiles, etc. if I see a cool pattern, color combo, or texture I am always thinking of ways to incorporate those into a look.
IF YOU WEREN'T A STYLIST WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING INSTEAD:
I think I would really enjoy interior design. Being able to create a space that is so personal to an individual while also getting to be creative is something I’ve always been fond of.
WHAT SONG GETS STUCK IN YOUR HEAD MOST OFTEN: Currently “Believe it” by PARTYNEXTDOOR & Rihanna
WHAT IS THE ONE ITEM OF CLOTHING THAT YOU WEAR MOST OFTEN: My Levi Wedgie jeans. An absolute staple for me, I wear them every day.
WHAT WOULD THE TITLE OF YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY BE: “Never Too Tired to Roast”
WHAT IS THE HARDEST THING YOU'VE EVER DONE:
I think confronting my anxiety and depression has been a real battle for me. There are so many stigmas around mental health but glad to be receiving help and thankful to those I surround myself with that allow me to be authentic with it.
WHEN'S THE LAST TIME YOU LAUGHED SO HARD IT HURT:
My cat got a tissue box stuck on his head and thought jumping around would remove it (it did not). *he was not harmed in this incident
WHAT IS YOUR SECRET TALENT:
I can nap anytime, anywhere and it is a talent I do not take for granted.
WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO DANCE MOVE:
I love a good shoulder shimmy or classic body roll. Either way, I’m usually the first one on the dance floor.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO UNWIND AFTER A BUSY DAY:
I really enjoy cooking so I usually will blast some good music while making dinner. It’s my favorite way to decompress at the end of the day.
WHAT IS THE CRAZIEST MAKEUP LOOK YOU HAVE CREATED?
I once had to make an actor look like he had been frozen for a prank show. I used to do a lot of special fx when I first started so it was a lot of fun to revisit those skills and really wild to see that creation come to life.
