After doing research and consulting work for the skin-care industry, I developed another passion: hands-on makeup design and TV, film production.
As a makeup artist, I have participated in many professional photo-shoots: models, brides, and ad campaigns. I also have extensive experience in print, theatrical, news, documentaries, commercials, music videos, films, and telenovelas.
I am familiar with lighting techniques and how they relate to makeup. I work with traditional and airbrushed makeup. When in film production, I work with an extraordinary computer program called "About Face" to simplify continuity, I love it!. I understand the cost of time and the importance of timing when working on professional productions. I'm friendly but professional, and I relate very well with people of all disciplines within the production.
I enjoy doing special FXs such as bruises, cuts, bullet wounds, stabbing, burns, appliances, and bald caps with an emphasis on a good job done in minimal time. In addition, I am able to do hair design for the talent.
As a consultant, with many years of Dermatology research and as Quality Control Director for a home shopping channel, I teach my clients the importance of skincare and health, how to use the vast arrange of skincare products and cosmetics in the market. My clients learn which products are the best for them, and at what price range is good for them. What they get out of my service is: "no skin is the same and our skin is as individualized as our own selves". I teach each one of my clients to be an educated consumer without being overwhelmed by the Cosmetic industry.
If you have a beauty concern, I am your gal the person to contact.
I have been in the industry since 2000.
