Beauty is my passion.
When I was growing up in Louisiana, working in the beauty industry was a struggle. New Orleans was considered a tourist city, not a beauty capital, so beauty salons were in short supply near me. At 18 years old, I left home for New York to attend Makeup School and become a Licensed Esthetician, and the rest is history!
I came to Chicago in 2001 while working for MAC Cosmetics- I was one of their first Lead Artists and I moved here to set up and run the makeup counter at Marshall Fields. After seeing my work with MAC, Estee Lauder hired me for their makeup counter. I was shortly after promoted to Regional Artist and then National Artist. It was working with Estee Lauder on a photoshoot in Los Angeles in 2006 that I found my passion for Eyelash Extensions.
I have since become a Master Lash Technician and even opened one of the first lash extension studios in 2010. My expertise includes Makeup, Eyelash Extension, and Brows. I have worked with bridal companies and my work has been published in Chicago Bride Magazine. I have also been featured on WGN, CBS, and ABC. I was voted Best in Chicago in 2016 and 2017.
I love to share my passion with other professionals by teaching classes as a Licensed Lash Instructor. I hope to share my passion with you, my clients, whether it is through eyelash extensions or makeup.
