What first inspired you to become a makeup artist?

I had the opportunity to work on a makeup shoot, with minimal experience, and I had to take a crash course on makeup application. Due to this opportunity, I realized that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. It's hard to imagine now, but it all happened by accident.

How would you describe your creative style?

My makeup aesthetic is getting more and more minimalistic. I'm all about creating make-up that enhances the natural beauty of my client.

How do you use airbrush makeup in your career?

I use TEMPTU products both on photo shoots, and for my clients. I love the dewy finish of TEMPTU S/B Foundation, so I tend to use whenever I can!

In your professional career, what work are you most proud of?

It's hard to pin-point just one, because I'm very lucky to work with many amazing people. But if I had to choose, I'd say it was working as the main makeup artist on the Gok Style Secrets television series. Thank You Gok!

Where do you find your beauty inspiration?

Almost everywhere; books, films, my surroundings...but my best inspiration always comes from nature.

What do you foresee as the next hot makeup trend for the New Year?

I think that 2015 will be all about a healthy glow. Strong lips are always a great choice for those who want to make a more dramatic statement.

What are some TEMPTU products that you can’t live without?

TEMPTU S/B Foundation! Love the finish, longevity, ease of application - it's just perfect. I also can't live without the S/B Highlighter (it's on almost all of my editorial work) and S/B Mixing Medium...yup, I'm a total "mix-oholic!"

Is there anything that you would like to add for our Pro community?

The only limit to makeup is your imagination! Airbrush makeup is the perfect medium for making all your imaginations come true.
