One of my younger clients asked me recently, how I got good at doing hair and makeup. I replied, a lot of practice, classes and pure passion. I took a TON of art classes as a kid and teenager. I loved drawing, coloring you name it. I remember constantly looking through magazines, reading makeup books from Bobbi Brown to Kevyn Aucoin trying to mimic looks I loved. I practiced on myself, my friends, doll heads and basically anyone willing. I competed in pageants and had lots of practice getting ready for events and appearances as well. I was accepted into a ROP Cosmetology School program that my high school offered and I jumped on the opportunity. I quickly fell in love with the beauty industry and I was hooked! I graduated from cosmetology school two months after high school and received my Cosmetology License that winter. I then decided to continue with my path in college. I graduated with an AA in Humanities and AS in Health Science. I then went on to graduate with a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies and Communications from California Baptist University. At that time I had already been working six years as a cosmetologist and growing my Hair and Makeup business and brand as Makeup By MasKara. Now twelve years later in the beauty industry I am still in love. My love for pageants, weddings and beauty has taken me on an incredible journey thus far. I travel across the country helping young women achieve their goals, by helping their inner beauty shine through. I not only get the privilege to witness so many incredible moments and be apart of people’s special days, but I get the opportunity to help someone feel their best. I truly believe God gifted me with these talents to do exactly what I am doing. I am the one getting blessed by it. I get to work amongst amazing people. I am truly humbled by the recognitions I have received and am grateful for my career and the people I get to work with.
