Why it took me so long to create a blog, I'll never know. So, obligatory first post!! A jib about my life so far in the industry.
Truly, it is a busy life being a makeup artist. Starving artist syndrome is in full effect and I love it! I am young, I'm excited and I'm still learning everything I possibly can.
November 2016 was where I began this journey thanks to Mike Reilly, the director of Ellie who is also a family friend of mine. Ellie opened many doors for me, meeting people in the industry and proving my worth to them was a must. Recognition, credentials and criticism are still what I thrive on to get by.
Now, nearing a year in the makeup-film industry, I'm still grabbing every opportunity I can get. I have 3 movies coming up that I'll be doing more than just makeup on, and I can't wait to show you what I've been working on. So far, I have close to 10 films under my belt to date!! 2 weddings, a few parties and events in there as well. Maryland really opened my opportunities up.
I couldnt have gotten this far without fans and supporters. People who believed and people who hated. Being relevant is a big deal to me. I think my greatest work isn't as good as it could be and my worst is still a good try. My parents, my boyfriend, family and friends never let me hit rock bottom. Encouraged me and pulled me to my feet when I didn't want to use them.
The Towson University EMF community and LKT for taking me in as one of their own. 72 Film Fest for having me be apart of your amazing feature film. I'm so humbled and thankful to have such amazing creative and inspiring people want to see me succeed.
I truly feel like family to you all.
Can't wait for more crazy sets and amazing job opportunities.
