FOUNDER & LEAD ARTIST
Here's a brief history of who I am, what I do and why I do what I do:
I was blessed to be raised in a home that nurtured creativity and encouraged to pursue our dreams in all things art-related. At a young age, I was always snooping in my mom's room to smear my face in lipstick and drench myself in her perfume (I have home videos to prove it).
Beauty was always my first love, my science, my creative problem-solving, my muse.
With discipline, I started to take my art seriously and educate myself back in 2010 (before the YouTube tutorials) in a broad range of application skills and techniques. Shortly after, I was hired at the M.A.C. Pro store in Orlando, FL as a "Pro Advanced Certified Makeup Artist." Within the time of building a stronger portfolio and acquiring certifications under my belt as well as becoming a licensed artist, I started my own freelance business - The Misses MUA.
Specializing in bridal makeup as well as editorial, my work has landed in multiple magazine spreads such as "Like Magazine," and has made the cover of Indian Bridal magazine "Desh-Videsh" as well as "Elegant Magazine."
I love editorial and everything beauty but as a hopeless romantic, there was such a fulfillment in doing weddings. I am able to share such beautiful and intimate moments with my brides as they prepare to give themselves to whom they love.
In November of 2015, it was finally my turn to be a bride and marry my best friend of 5 years.
I was able to plan a wedding and gain more experience as not only
an artist for weddings, but to understand what it is
to be an actual bride and all that being a bride encompasses!
I am blessed to do what I love and share special moments
with all the beautiful faces I encounter.
But enough about me!
