How long have you been active in your nominated field?
I have been a make-up artist for about 3 years now, but have been professionally building my portfolio since January 2017
How would you describe yourself as a fashion artist in relation to your nominated field, creativity or talent?
I am a fashion artist because I am more than MAKEUP!!!! I coordinate photo shoots, i creatively direct, I concept design, I do castings and I also rally the troops when it's time to get to work! I pull designers, stylists, hair stylists, models, photographers, etc. I'm a renaissance artist so to speak!
Have you ever participated in a fashion Runway Show before?
FashNet was my very first runway experience! Because of it, instead of working them, I am now the Lead MUA for the shows this upcoming spring! So thank you FASHNET for the opportunity!
Have you ever been nominated for an Award before? If so which one?
have not, this is my first and I am absolutely HONORED!
What inspires and motivates you?
My daughter, my loved ones, and my need to create a 7 stream income for myself. I strive to succeed for nothing but greatness!!!
What 4 Adjectives best describe your work?
Flawless, Creative, Impeccable, and FAI!
What makes you the best candidate for this Award?
I am the best candidate for this award because there isn't anything I can't do. Of course, most MUA's know how to "beat a face" but do they know how to appeal to the unobtainable? I have been published going on 9 times since August 2017, my very first publication was the cover and a full spread in Ellements Magazine. It takes years for a lot of makeup artists to come as far as i have and this year, i'm achieving a minimum of 12 publications and 3 major contracts. I want to teach other MUA's how to reach the unreachable, how to perfect your craft and settle for nothing less than just hometown makeup. I want to be that motivator, a woman that people look up to!
