What do you love about working in makeup?
I love the transformation-when I finish and the client lights up because she feels and looks amazing!
What do you love about airbrushing?
I LOVE to airbrush! There is no finish like it for flawless skin. It is not duplicable by brush or hand. It is the future of makeup application!
In your career, what project is the most memorable, and what project did you have the most fun doing?
I always love doing the MTV Movie Awards. I have done a few. My favorite one was recreating Xerxes from 300, Captain Jack and Barbossa from Pirates of the Caribbean and the Silver Surfer from Fantastic Four- lots of painting, airbrush, and light prosthetics! So much fun!
What makeup trends do you expect to see in 2013?
Makeup trends for 2013…flawless, soft skin is always in style. Bright pops of color on lips and cheeks like fuchsia or coral, and metallic gold’s, bronze, and silvers for eyes!
