Who are some of your favourite artists to follow?
I love following Danessa Myricks, and James Molloy, they are both super talented, and I love the crisp clean makeup looks they showcase.
What is the most important thing you want your students to take away?
Push Yourself to try new things, work hard always, and be open to feedback. If a cool Makeup opportunity comes your way go for it, you may regret being too scared to try and let it pass you by.
What has been your biggest aha moment as an educator?
Everyone learns so differently, and being able to be open and real with them really helps them relate as we all start somewhere. I am not afraid to share my challenges, successes, and all the in-betweens. I also like to ask for feedback, so I can better my ability to educate.
What keeps you inspired /motivated?
I love being able to teach, however, I am the biggest advocate to keep learning from others. I also love watching other makeup artists as it always keeps me inspired to try new trends or techniques. I will also have to say my fellow MU community, there is a large community of us who communicate constantly and we are always here to lend a helping hand and to help lift each other up and support each other no matter what!
What do you love most about teaching?
Being able to see the Student’s confidence grow with each application, seeing their faces when they take pictures of the beautiful makeup looks they created. The smiles I see when we take a look back at some of their first application photos to some of their final ones and realizing how much they have grown is such a great feeling. I also love to collaborate with other Educators and Students, it really builds a foundation for creating a strong community to leave the program with, and of course building great friendships.
