Makeup Lessons

Most people don’t say that they love what they do. I truly love being a professional Makeup Artist; I live and breathe makeup. One of my most favorite things is to teach private makeup lessons and makeup classes in Orange County, California. I enjoy educating people on the proper way to apply makeup for their specific eye, face shape, and skin tone. Also, playing with makeup is just so fun!

A favorite memory I have as a teen is when my mom took me to the Clinique counter in the local mall to buy makeup. The woman at the counter sat me down and put a bunch of makeup on me. I was so ecstatic at all the new products that my mom purchased, I could barely contain myself! The next morning I was excited to test out my new foundation, eyeshadows, pencils, mascara, lipstick, and blush. I remember thinking… “How do I exactly put all of this on?”

Years later I followed my passion for makeup and attended Makeup Designory in Burbank to learn proper technique. I learned so much that first week, and realized that correct placement is extremely important. Not everyone can wear the same colors in the same position on the eye or cheek. Facial structure on each person is so different. Highlighting and contouring isn’t a one size fits all type of technique, nor is using the same blush color on someone with pale skin verses darker skin.

It doesn’t matter how old you are, whether 13 or 73. Learning how to apply makeup for specific ages is important because facial structure changes as we age. Teaching someone how to enhance their natural beauty based on these important elements is huge for me. It’s a transformation of not only the outside of a person but the inside as well.

I invite you to book a private makeup lesson with me or sign up to one of my future classes. We will go over skin care, proper placement, technique, and colors that best suit you. Bring your favorite brushes, foundations, and makeup bag for assessment. You will feel confident and know that you can look your very best each day.

To book, please email me at

Makeup lessons are also a great gift to give someone for the holidays! Gift certificates are available upon request.

I look forward to teaching you how to enhance your natural beauty!
