What You'll Get
A Chat with The Beauty Life
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? I’m a recent graduate of Douglas J Aveda in East Lansing, Michigan. There I studied Esthiology where I learned the fascinating techniques of makeup application. I am also skilled in skin care, facials, light tissue massage, and full body waxing. I took these skills and decided to freelance myself as a makeup artist after graduation in August of 2016. Since I am an Esthetician, I prep the skin before applying makeup by cleansing it, applying toner, eye cream, and an SPF moisturizer. I believe healthy skin is the first step to beautiful makeup.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I got started a most girls do; playing with my mom’s makeup! I would experiment with different eyeshadow colors and really went got into a heavy bright pink shadow phase in my early twenties, thank goodness that’s over! While in the military I wore neutral tones to not contrast with the uniform, but once I retired in November of 2016, I decided that it was time for me to step out and utilize my talents. My education at Douglas J Aveda truly helped prepare me for this career.
What do you love most about your job? The best reaction I ever got from a customer was a hug and a set of tears. The customer had severe acne damage and was embarrassed to be seen in public. I showed her how to treat her skin to prevent future acne, and how to apply the makeup herself.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer? What I love most about my job is making people feel good out about themselves and loving who they see in the mirror, and educating them that beauty is skin deep and really begins with proper care of the skin.

I cleanse and prep the skin before any application, and avoid and pay attention to the attention of the client's skin. Education is one of the most important parts of my service. I want the client to know how to care for their skin with and without makeup.
