For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by makeup, fashion, art and style. I had a subscription to VOGUE at age 11. I tried to nail down what is was that made iconic style. As I grew my personal style became concrete. After high school I got a job at a trendy shoe store, after that landed a gig as a Fashion Specialist, all the while doing makeup on the side. I then worked for a prestigious makeup company for almost ten years, with a brief hiatus where I fell in love with France. This short time I lived in France further shaped my ideals about style, everyday elegance, and blossomed my love of fine art. Upon returning to the States, I worked on my craft for hours everyday with people from all walks of life, all skin tones and shapes, all ages. I proved that my skill was versatile, honed, precise, and sought after. While working in the makeup world I earned a B.A. in Psychology from Syracuse University. My love for people grew stronger with each experience and I mastered how to cater my skills to each of my client's unique needs. From Grammy award winning artists to a little girl's first dance recital- I breathed makeup. And when friends needed help picking out drapes, the perfect paint color for their living room or what outfit to wear for a first date, I was there texting links and taking them shopping. I weighed the options between graduate school and makeup and style....well, it's clear the path I chose. I've used all of my gathered life experiences to expand my brand beyond makeup. Style is everywhere, yet completely personal. It's the first thing you feel when you walk into a home, the lipstick you choose for the date, the sweater that you love so much year after year. Style is not generic-it is you. I'm here to help you find it, perfect it and enjoy it. What is it that makes iconic style? I found that as long as you are true to who you are, everything else falls into place...and if things aren't falling into place you call me!
I am a mother, a wife, sister, daughter and friend. Like so many of my clients I wear many different hats and take on various roles. When life events come up I want everything to be perfect from the smell of my home when friends come for dinner, to height of my heels when I attend an event with my husband, to the color of blush I apply in the dead of a Syracuse winter when my skin isn't at its best. All of which on a budget! Those details are sometimes overlooked, but can make a world of difference in my mood, in how confident and beautiful I feel. I like to live a life styled by my own rules, that make me feel like the best me I can be. I want all that I am to shine through. And I'm so happy to be here to help you feel like the very best you.
