Makeup Artist based out of San Jose California who loves animals, road trips & coffee!

My love for makeup first developed when a woman at a MAC cosmetics counter recommended a lip liner (Vino) and lipstick (Heroine) to me. I remember how excited I felt looking in the mirror…I looked at my lips in a whole new way! Ombre lips were very popular at the time, and this particular ombre lip liner and lipstick combo had me utterly amazed. Right then and there I fell in love with lipstick.

After seeing what an amazing lipstick could do, I started experimenting with all kinds of makeup.

A few thousand makeup purchases later…

In 2017 I decided to further pursue my passion for makeup by enrolling in a professional makeup artistry course, where I received my certification from MBY MAKEUP STUDIO in San Jose, CA. The education I received empowered me to apply my own makeup with confidence. But, that was only the beginning.

Shortly thereafter, I began working at Sephora. While working there I was able to fine-tune my skills and perfect my techniques as an artist. Every day I worked with multiple product lines and a diverse range of clientele. This hands-on experience gave me an in-depth knowledge of different beauty product lines. It also offered me the chance to work with a variety of women of all ages, ethnicities & their various skin tones, textures, and types. This helped me to cultivate a deeper appreciation for the unique beauty inherent to each woman.

After Sephora, I continued working one on one with women to help them along their beauty journey as an in-store brand representative for Zoeva Cosmetics.

But, due to world events in 2020, I realized a change was needed. I could no longer work in person with my clients. The shutdown gave me the time to really think about what I loved most about working in the beauty industry. I realized that I’m most passionate about sharing my knowledge of makeup and helping women to feel beautiful and empowered.

And thus, LipstickAmore Makeup Artistry was born! 

I believe that with the right makeup, any woman can go from pretty to pretty confident! And it brings me great joy to help women unlock the power of Makeup. Feel free to contact me with any questions you have. I would love to work with you!
