What go me into the beauty industry?
I honestly have always loved makeup. In school my friends would always ask me to do their makeup for dances and such and it always intrigued me. I had jobs through out the years that I was never fully satisfied with and I wasn't happy. At one of my last jobs all I did was watch makeup Youtube videos while I was supposed to be working (oops) and that eventually led me to realizing I wasn't fufilled. So I quit my job, went to makeup school and never looked back!
My favorite thing about being a part of someone's wedding day is-
ALL THE LOVE!! No seriously, there is always so much love on someone's wedding day it is so truly special that I am able to witness it and play a small part in a day that so many people will cherish and remember for a lifetime!
If I wasn't a Makeup artist, what would I be?
One of my favorite job's I had was working with the mentally disabled, and to this day still plays a huge roll in my life! I would defintely be doing something along those lines still, or animals! Can i get paid to just play with animals all day? Thats the life!
The one thing i don't think I could live without is-
My Family! My husband and dog's included aka my children.
You may not guess-
I'm an advocate for someone with a mental disability, and he's been in my life since 2010 and put's the biggest smile on my face whenever im with him. 
When I'm not glamming beauty's all day you can find me-
In pajamas, watching all the reality tv that's bad but oh so good, ordering food and regretting all the plans I made earlier in the week. 
The thing that means the most to me is-
Aside from my family would be my business. I literally pour my heart and soul into my business and every single bride I'm fortunate enough to work with.
My favorite eats-
All the foods!! lol seriously though it's so hard to choose because I love so many. But as of right now I would say the one thing I never get sick of eating is a bowl from Chipotle!!!!
If I was stranded on an island and could only bring 3 things with me they would be-
Definitely some SPF, not trying to burn. My dog's and husband. Cheesy I know!
Something to know about me-
I'm super passionate about my business and everyone I work with. I strive to go above and beyond for each of you to make sure your day and experience is nothing but the best. I have a big heart and more then likely i'll  be crying on your wedding day with you. I just love, love!
