Q: Who has been your most interesting client so far?
A: Diane Von Furstenburg, I did makeup for a fashion show she held at Holt Renfrew.

Q: Do you have any memories about hair/makeup when you were young that might have hinted at your future in Makeup/Hair?
A: One of my defining moments that helped me make the decision to explore makeup artistry as a career was all the times spent in my family’s bathroom experimenting with different makeup styles I would see in Voque/Harpers Bazaar and Elle. I would also mix and make lip glosses and eye shadows for my friends.

Q: Any notable or interesting facts about yourself or your career, or funny stories you’d like to share?
A: I am a mom of a 3 year old boy, would rather read on my day off and love to cook and eat! I am a serious foodie.

A: I met Faye at an updo class she was holding earlier this year.

Q: What makeup/hair myth would you like to bust?

A: That everyone needs to be “Instagram” made-up. It looks great in photos but can be over the top in real life. I want my clients to feel natural and beautiful in their own skin.

A: Mom blogger @creativewifeandjoyfulworker. She is a favorite and returning client of mine. Always love working with her.
