My beauty obsession started at a very young age with eyebrow shaping and recreating looks from glamour and beauty magazines. I was captivated by how beautiful the women were in these pictures - but It really wasn’t until age 14 where I had my first exposure to makeup.
I was part of a cheerleading dance team where the doll-like stage makeup was the main attraction of our performances. Red lips, bold eyeshadows, shimmers and fake eyelashes were just a few components of our grand presentation. I was amazed at how makeup transformed us, how our true inner beauty reflected on the outside...it was just beautiful. For about four years I was in charge of glamming my dance crew before taking the stage, it was through this period in my life I realized it was time to pursue my passion and art.
I was fortunate to be mentored by the talented Amanda Shackleton. Ever since then, I have been working with many photographers, taking on different projects and expanding my knowledge every chance I get. I’ve been to so many different places, and I’ve encountered many incredible people throughout my journey.
Working with Nina Mua has allowed me to continue to spread my passion and experience with others. It’s inspiring to meet people from different backgrounds and experience, brought together through our love for makeup. I love what I do and it’s not my job, it’s my life.
