The Makeup Show- Orlando, FL.  A BIG Thank You to AJ Crimson who brought me along to help launch his new line of cosmetics.  If you don't know who AJ Crimson (Celebrity Makeup Artist) is please visit him here: Also shout-outs to George McKenney (Celebrity Makeup Artist) and Michael Snow (Black Board Group Management).  You all were so amazing and I can wait to see you guys in LA and NYC in 2013!  xo- Care 

Education and networking are the two most important and invaluable tools to a makeup artist.  In October 2012 I had the chance of a lifetime to meet and take master class taught by Celebrity Makeup Artist- Sim Fine in Chicago, IL.  Sam is the Creative Makeup Director of Fashion Fair Cosmetics, and is also busy creating his own line of cosmetics. You can check out more about Sam here:

You'll also notice me pictured with Lee Will (Red Rim glasses).  Lee is an up-and-coming celebrity makeup artist and we're just a few of the makeup artists who travel nationally as a support team to other makeup artists and organizations.  If you get the chance to work with him, I highly recommend it!

A few pics of makeup work I've done with Musician Mayda Miller.  These are takes from her up-coming music video for "Your Infinity", promotional shoot, performances at: The ICEHOUSE, Minneapolis RAW, and GiveMN.Org in Mall of America. 

My makeup work's been published in Inked Magazine on Seimone Augustus (G) of the WNBA Minnesota Lynx.

My production work: Behind the scenes. Once these webisodes go live I'll link them here. I would like to thank Knowlera Media,, Skil Tool, and The Family Handyman for this opportunity to bring my High Definition makeup art to the small screen.  Also want to give shout-outs to talents Ana White and Chris Gardner, you guys were so fun to work with!  (Google them, it's amazing what these two do!  They are Stars in the DYI arena.) For the makeup artists seeing this, I threw in a pic of my man vs. woman makeup kits.  Haha!

Just some behind-the-scenes/ on-set pictures from my time at ShopNBC with Eve Pearl and Pom Pavee.  You can see a little Salmon Concealer Magic, and me playing a model.  Haha!  The experience of working on Live TV is something that every makeup artist should get under their belt.  It teaches you how to be fast and accurate with your brush.  It also teaches you the most important lesson as an artist: How to work under exreme amounts of pressure and keep a smile on your face. 

Below are a few pictures I took while working at The International Beauty and International Esthetics, Cosmetics & Spa Conferences in June 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada. While at this convention I got the opportunity to assist Eve in teaching her very popular High Definition (HD) Bridal Makeup class.  There are a lot of tips and tricks to creating beauty! 

 Below are some picutres I took while at International Makeup Artist Tradeshow in Los Angeles, CA.  June 2012

This photo shoot was done in Uptown Minneapolis , MN.  We would like to thank Midwest Makeup Supply for use of their space.
