Throughout my life I’ve had an interest for beauty and fashion. Growing up and watching my mother as a fashion designer impacted my life in unimaginable ways. She made some of the best dresses and tailored suits that I’ve seen to this day. She had a real passion for what she did. As a result, a similar flame of passion has been lit inside of me in the pursuit of my own goals and dreams. Like my mother, I have developed a natural talent. As a little girl, I learned quickly what it meant to think and dream big.
My journey as a Makeup Artist began as I watched music videos of stars like Dianna Ross, fashion icons the King of Pop Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’. And endless beauty such as the late Whitney Houston. The colors, shades, tones and the transformation of makeup really intrigued me, so I began to explore.
At the age of 17, I started to do makeup for singers and performers at my high school talent shows. As I witnessed the transformation and confidence that sparked in the eyes of my school mates from my work, it further cemented my passion to pursue becoming the best at what I do. Making people look and feel beautiful. By 19, I enrolled in a beauty school called, Marvel to study aesthetics and makeup artistry. After performing my first facial on a client, seeing the satisfaction it gave her and how amazing she felt thereafter. I knew then, I was on the right path.
I’ve done numerous photo shoots for fashion designers and worked with the best photographers in the city. I’ve done makeup for fashion shows, music videos, TV shows, websites and fashion magazines. One of my achievements was doing makeup for Miss Jamaica as she went off to Las Vegas to compete for the crown of Miss Universe 2012. I’ve had articles done in magazines on my work and have been interviewed on entrepreneur websites for the fashion industry. I am a Personal Makeup Artist for performing artists, local celebrities and for people who just want to go and enjoy themselves for a night on the town. I make myself available for all sorts of events and find joy in what I do and have fun doing it. I’ve gained quite the notoriety that has set me apart from other Makeup artist in my local area.
Being in this industry has opened my eyes to see peoples’ obsession with the way they look and how they are perceived by others. I have developed a keen sense of awareness of each client I come across as a result. We all have the potential to begin living a healthy and holistic lifestyle in the areas of our body, mind and spirit. I perceive that once we all grasp this approach to living, it will translate in a positive self-concept. Hence, inner beauty and the love for nature and its creations. Everything that I speak of concerning beauty, I practice in my own life. I have studied and gained tremendous knowledge of nutrition and the science of life, which is also known as, Ayurveda in the Sanskrit language.
My passion is clear and I sure have the motivation to pursue my dreams. I truly possess the ability to corner the beauty and health industry which I believe that this is my path in life. The gift I must give back. I plan to do this one client at a time, bringing each person to see their true natural beauty which comes from within.
