FULL TIME AESTHETICIAN
I became obsessed with skincare out of necessity due to the issues I was having with oily, break-out-prone skin. Knowing what I know now, I realize it was due to hormone fluctuations during adolescence. I wanted desperately to have what at least looked like “good skin” and this led me to dabble into makeup. I wasn’t sure if my parents would let me wear makeup at such a young age and quite frankly, I was a bit embarrassed because I didn’t want to draw any extra attention to myself, especially not to my skin. I made sure to wear just enough to make it “appear” as if my skin were clear and this “natural” aesthetic is what later shaped how I approach makeup styling as a professional makeup artist.
After working in the beauty industry for over two decades, I’ve acquired an expansive knowledge regarding makeup and skincare products, ingredients and how to put it all together into an effective daily regimen. After working in the industry for so long, I decided to further increase my knowledge by attending Aveda Arts & Sciences here in Charlotte, NC in 2019 and received my esthetics license the same year. I love that I get to work with diverse skin tones while helping to improve my clients’ skin. It’s such a rewarding feeling when I have clients that see their skin improve and can feel confident in the skin they're in.
