"Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself."

- Coco Chanel

The elevator pitch: I'm a luxury bridal and lifestyle makeup artist based in San Jose, CA. I focus on skin care, self-care and the human connection to help women see the beauty they already have.

I find every face to be beautiful, but feel that beauty truly resides in the heart. When working with clients, I aim to show each person how exceptionally beautiful they are. This starts with connection and continues with a focus on skin. 

Skin became a passion and understanding of mine when attending the School of Esthetics at San Jose City College. More so, this is where I met mentor and dear friend, Priscilla Francine Makeup. Not only did I learn from Priscilla's expansive skill set, but her amazing business and interpersonal skills as well. 

I strive to make your time with me a reprieve from everyday life; a moment to forget your worries and pamper yourself. 

Creativity has driven me since I was a young girl. I began dancing in third grade and continued through college. I also enjoy painting, coloring, and home decorating.

When makeup entered my life through dance, it came as a pleasant surprise. I loved transforming my teammates and seeing their faces light up upon the big reveal. 

Now I get to see the same light in my brides' faces. I feel so honored to be a part of each bride's big day and can't wait to meet you!
