How Did You Get into Makeup Artistry?

I got started when a local photographer gave me the opportunity to work with some local models to help get my portfolio started. Through this, I gained confidence in my work and it allowed me to explore different areas of makeup. I have also taken a course to gain more knowledge on makeup application and plan on attending makeup workshops in the future.

What is Your Favorite Aspect of Being a Makeup Artist?

 My favorite aspect of being an Makeup Artist is the different people that I get to meet. I have made so many contacts while doing this and gained so many supporters.

 How Important is it to Use a Professional Makeup Artist?

It is important to use a professional MUA (makeup artist) because they help with creating a look that will work for your facial features. Shading and Contouring are an important part of applying makeup and not everyone knows that. But sometimes it is just nice to get pampered and let someone else make you beautiful.

What Should a Model Do to Prepare Her Skin for a Shoot?

Moisturizing your face is a good way to prepare the skin for makeup. It softens and hydrates the skin so makeup is easier to apply and not so harsh on the face.

Star Hair and Makeup provides Makeup Artistry for Weddings, Special Events, Fashion & Glamour Photoshoots.
