My approach to all makeup foremost is to create a beautiful canvas, like prepping a painting. I believe in enhancing the natural beauty and allowing the individual strengths of a clients features to shine through. There are times for dramatic transformation and a touch of theatre in makeup but mostly, everyone deserves to present themselves with confidence and natural radiance . I have the skills, forged over years of experience and dedication, to achieve this with ease and expertise."
"I began ... under (the) mentorship of make-up artist extraordinaire, Deborah Munday. I would honestly attest that Deborah taught me near everything I know. Deborah essentially taught me the ethos of makeup in particular to never approach it from a negative perspective. She taught me how to place and blend makeup in terms of mapping a face correctly and working with what the client likes. Being tactile, teachable and humble counts for a lot. I knew very early on the direction I wanted to take."
