So why my own makeup line? Several reasons- first of all, if you have ever worked with me, you know that my makeup kit is filled with several different brands, from NARS, to MAC, to Laura Mercier. Each line had their products that I adored, but when it came time to do a makeup lesson, clients were getting confused about to which brand and product to use for what. So I decided there had to be a way to streamline all of my favorite products into one Pro MUA and 'civilian'-friendly line....the high pigment level of Nars, the customizeable palettes of MAC, the flawless skin of Laura Mercier, the HD-capabilities of Make Up For Ever. Also, long term I seek world domination as a professional makeup artist. Or, just the ability to travel and educate people- that's what really makes me happy. Since my first job as an artist was for Prescriptives where I would custom-blend women's foundation and powder every day, I knew it was possible. Now, do I have a chemist and manufacturing lab in my kitchen? Of course not! But what I DO have is the exact same chemists and manufacturers that work for these high end brands which allow me to create my own colors and tweak formulas to my specifications, allowing me to cultivate what I feel to be one of the best collections of colors and products. Oh, and no testing on animals! I have been doing research and development for many of these same lines for years, so the transition was easy for me. I am very proud f it, and hope you will love everything as much as I do!
