How did I find my passion for face painting?  

For those out of the loop, surprise! I'm also a makeup artist, and my journey into the world of face artistry all started with Halloween. Every spooky season, clients would come knocking, asking to be transformed into their fave characters, zombies, or the classic skull look. After diving into research, I took the plunge and invested in face paints to take these designs to the next level. As the years flew by, my love for Halloween painting blossomed, As each Halloween rolled around, my passion for painting spooky designs blossomed, merging face paints and makeup to craft intricate masterpieces. It was in those moments that I discovered a new love - the enchanting world of Face Painting!

How did my face painting business get started?

In a twist of fate, back in 2012, my dad received a tough diagnosis. Suddenly, my makeup dreams took a backseat as I shifted gears to be by his side. Leaving my job at MAC cosmetics, I took a local gig to stay close. Little did I know, this detour would lead me to an unexpected treasure trove of moments with my dad. His words of wisdom echoed in my mind long after he was gone, nudging me to chase my passion for face painting. And so, armed with courage and a sprinkle of hope, I dipped my brush into the world of face art. Slowly but surely, my business bloomed like a colorful garden, one smile at a time. All thanks to my dad, my guiding light in the sky.
