BTS. Touch up. Portrait by Wes and Alex Photography.

I am a Licensed Esthetician and Professional Makeup Artist located in Los Angeles, CA.

Beauty is my passion, my gift and my life.

My first attempt at a facial was at the age of 3. Buddy, the bear had many wrinkles. After watching my grandmother put her cold cream on at night, I decided that this was his ticket to plump skin. Of course this was all intuitive and not well thought out as a toddler. Much to my grandmother’s dismay, I had used all of her expensive product, and nearly ruined my favorite toy.

She scolded me asking, “Why would you do that?”

To which I replied, “He has wrinkles!” How could she argue with that!?

Professionally, I started working as beauty consultant in retail cosmetics in 2004.

I spent nearly a decade climbing the corporate cosmetics business ladder. Eventually, working as an educator and trainer for clinical skin care brands, managing & educating many teams. I traveled an expansive territory, first in Arizona, later in Southern California.

In 2012, I began to work as freelance makeup artist primarily for productions.

I decided to invest in myself and enrolled at the Aveda Institute Los Angeles where I acquired my esthetics license.

I have been fortunate to have many mentors in makeup artistry. I have assisted in departments for Oscar winning makeup-artists, keyed indie features, commercials, and documentaries, styled hair and makeup for red carpet events, head shots and weddings.

I am truly grateful to all of the women and men that I have had the opportunity to work alongside in my 15 years in this beauty and entertainment industry.

I continue to freelance makeup in the greater Los Angeles area and offer facial services in North East Los Angeles, https://www.vagaro.com/restingwitchfacials
