“I started experimenting with makeup when I was in high school but it wasn’t until recently that I started to see it as a professional career. I have always been fascinated by the beauty and glamour of old-Hollywood. What started as an interest took a different path about a year ago. First, I began by watching tutorials on YouTube and following social media influencers like Carli Bybel and the Kardashians, who have mastered the art of makeup perfectly. The more I learned, the more I wanted to know. Wearing makeup gives you a certain presence and an added sense of confidence. A year ago, I added to my makeup portfolio by adding tools for contouring and highlighting.
It was also a year ago that I looked into schools that would train me to become a professional makeup artist. That led me to Robert Fiance in New Jersey, which I selected for their small classes and personal approach to learning. After I completed my training and received my certification in October I decided to go beyond the basics and pursue a license in skin care and more in-depth makeup application.
In the short term I would like to work in an upscale spa with a feel-good environment. But my dream is to become a celebrity makeup artist. For instance, I would love to apply makeup for red carpet events. Because the lure of old-Hollywood glamour is still strong within me!
