Meet Your Airbrush Artists
My love for the beauty industry started at a very young age, but it became my profession in 2006 when I started working for MAC Cosmetics, where I was a Regional Education Trainer and makeup artist for 15 years.
My passion and my skillset is in making people look and feel beautiful, and I love collaborating with my clients. Tell me what you’re thinking and together we’ll make it happen!
My 15-year career has allowed me to work on some thrilling events across the country. I have worked backstage at New York Fashion Week with designers like Sies Marjan and Kaimin. I have partnered with companies and groups like Urban Outfitters, Disney, the Chicago Bulls ‘Luvabulls’ and the B-52s. To say I am grateful for every career step and experience leading up to this moment in time would be an absolute understatement.
My clients mean the world to me. I’ve always dreamt of working with people, and I wouldn’t trade any of the long hours or learning curves. Making people feel beautiful and providing an escape for them to discuss anything they want - from beauty questions to marital advice - that’s what I live for!
I’ve loved all things beauty since I was 4-years-old and would take my aunt’s lipstick and over-apply it to my face. I’ve worked in the beauty industry professionally since 2005, when I graduated from cosmetology school. Prior to coming to Glamour Girl, I worked for MAC Cosmetics for 10 years, where I had the opportunity to work New York Fashion Week - a lifelong dream come true! I held many different roles within the company, from Artist to various different levels of management, and in my final years holding the Store Manager position at MAC Pro on Michigan Avenue.
When I’m not airbrush tanning at Glamour Girl, I’m working with brides and fellow artists doing makeup for weddings in Chicago.
My passion for beauty started in 1996 at 4th period lunch when my best friend and I would give our girlfriends “makeovers” with all of our drugstore makeup. Fast forward to 2003 and I found my calling doing makeup professionally at Chicago’s beloved Marshall Field’s at Water Tower Place. After 3 years with Benefit Cosmetics I transitioned into a 15 year career with MAC Cosmetics where I served in various roles from artist to business manager.
Throughout this makeup journey I’ve been honored to meet and glam an array of celebs from Brandy to Joan Cusack, the LuvaBulls, various Chicago TV personalities and have worked for networks like ESPN and BET.
At the end of the day what really brings me joy is connecting with all kinds of people and making them feel comfortable and beautiful in their skin! If I can empower anyone with confidence through my airbrush or makeup artistry then I’m a happy woman!
My fascination with beauty and transformation began at a young age as I grew up on stage as a dancer. I quickly learned how makeup was a component of great storytelling. At the age of 10, my mom became my first model as I tried to recreate the makeup looks of the actresses from the Spanish soap operas we would watch.
As a Chicago-based Makeup Artist for almost 20 years, I combine my Mindset & Integrative Nutrition Health Coach certifications to work with women in a signature Beauty + Wellness Coaching Program. My method combines conscious beauty practices, mindset, and nutrition to help women level-up their beauty from the inside-out and ensure total radiance and wellness. Possibly even defying age along the way.
I have been featured in Yahoo! Lifestyle, Modern Luxury Chicago and NBC News. The majority of my career was spent as Regional Trainer of Education for M.A.C Cosmetics and Estee Lauder Companies where I trained and mentored over 700 makeup artists in technical artistry. In recent years, I’ve provided makeup support at New York Fashion Week, consultations to Chicago-based production makeup departments, Chicago brides, and makeup to celebrity clients like Lady Gaga, Cyndi Lauper, and Jared Leto, just to name a few.
Beauty is my jam, people are my passion. That is why I am so excited to be on the Glamour Girl team!
