I'm not sure when it started - my passion for makeup and female beauty goes back as far as I can remember. I think in high school when my friends started asking me to do their makeup, I realized maybe there was a skill set here with which I had been blessed. I did my first full wedding and bridal party at age 21 and was hooked. I started working for Bobbi Brown cosmetics as an at-counter makeup artist and quickly grew within the company. As passionate as I was about artistry, I ended up going the corporate route, growing from Artistry to Management to Education to Account Executive, all the while, doing makeup for brides on the side.
