Meet Your Airbrush Artists
We are artists by trade, combining an 'aesthetic eye' with attention to detail to give you that sun-kissed look & feel reminiscent of rolling off a tropical island beach. Glamour Girl is our way of sharing our gifts and bringing more light and love to the world each day.
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 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 Fields 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, and 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!
After being in the beauty industry for over 14 years and working all over Chicago with a diverse clientele, I’ve been able to make the most wonderful connections with people and expand my skill set as a makeup and airbrush artist.
My beauty journey started at the MAC Cosmetics counter at my local mall when I was a teenager. I was always infatuated with their makeup and the overall vibe that the teams had. I made it my goal to somehow be part of this awesome crowd that always made me feel beautiful not only outside but inside as well.
Throughout the years I’ve learned so many ways that you can enhance what you've got to look and feel like your best version of yourself and that's one of the reasons why I love being part of the Glamour Girl team! I love being able to enhance natural beauty and increase my client's confidence in many different ways.
Outside of work, I am a new mom to a 7-month-old who keeps me on my toes 24/7. We enjoy walks to the park, pool days, and naps! Can’t forget about naps! I am also newly engaged so I'm really in tune with all things weddings and I'm always open to any recommendations for a Fall wedding if you have any!
I have been in the beauty industry since 2012 and I moved to Chicago in 2013 to grow my skills and craft as a hairstylist.
After moving to Chicago, my love for beauty grew more than I ever thought it could! The ever-evolving trends, the vivacious energy of the industry, and all of the new ways you can master your craft inspired me to grow while still honoring my journey and everyone that I’d learned from in the past.
I worked at Glamour Girl as an Airbrush Artist from 2017-2018 until I moved back to Cincinnati at which time I shifted my focus to hair specifically but I’m so excited to be back in the spray tanning game. My clients are hands down my favorite part of my job. Getting to connect with each client is so special and unique because you get to talk them through their tough times but also get to celebrate all their amazing wins in life too.
I was originally trained by the amazing Riane and Mallory but now I get to come back with new skills and a fresh mindset with Casey and the gorgeous GG crew and I couldn’t be happier! When I am not giving our beautiful clients that perfect glow- I am styling hair back in Cincinnati and Evanston!
I have been in the beauty industry for the past 12 years and my favorite thing about it has always been connecting with people and having the opportunity to enhance my client's natural beauty and energy. It is such a rewarding feeling when I get to see a client's facial expression and smile when they feel more confident as a result of something I was able to do for them!
Over the last decade, I worked as a Special Effects and Media makeup artist, as well as an artist for my forever favorite makeup brand, MAC Cosmetics. Understanding that beauty happens from the inside out, and that art and cosmetics can help us express ourselves and show a bit more of our personality creates a beautiful combination of glow and confidence.
Aside from that, I am also a Realtor with JDC/Compass so I work closely with buyers, sellers, and investors in Chicago and the suburbs. Being a resource on everything real estate keeps my days busy and my heart full! As someone who is constantly working on learning and evolving, it is easy to stay inspired and motivated when surrounded by such great energy, skills, and support as I get to experience here at Glamour Girl.
