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 love and passion for the skin care, aesthetic and wellness industry (beauty industry as a whole), has been lifelong. Since 2006, I’ve had a diverse career as both a makeup artist and aesthetician. From modeling agencies, photoshoots, to numerous retail organizations, including MAC Cosmetics – makeup artistry will always be my first love. In 2010, I had the opportunity to open an airbrush tanning location in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago. For over three years, I had the pleasure of meeting so many amazing clients and I’m excited to hone my spray tanning skills once again for the fabulous Glamour Girl clientele!
As an Aesthetician and former resident of Beverly Hills, I am also no stranger to the demands of maintaining flawless skin. For the past ten years, I have worked in several different environments, mostly in the dermatology, plastic and cosmetic surgery fields, as a dual licensed aesthetician in both the state of Illinois and California. Regardless of the role, I never take for granted the impact I can have on a person’s confidence and self-esteem. To me, there is nothing more rewarding than making someone feel beautiful. More than ever, I’m excited to join a team of women at Glamour Girl, who embody and embrace the same philosophy.
When I’m not at Glamour Girl, I’m currently working towards obtaining my Master of Science degree in Nursing. I plan to continue my work in the aesthetics industry as a nurse and love learning about new ingredients, treatments, and technology. I find I have always learned the most from my clients, so be prepared to talk all things beauty!
