Before & After Professional Makeup by Yours Truly

The past 3 years I have not been very wise about documenting my work, but now that I have my own salon chair and I am home from college, I want to build my portfolio to the stars!  Today I applied makeup on my mother who is beautiful with or without makeup, but she was kind enough to help me start off my portfolio.  Stay tuned to see more women (and possibly men) of all ages, skin tones, and ethnicity.  If you are interested in my services, feel free to e-mail me at (with “**your name** makeup” as the subject line) to set up a consultation or appointment.










Daytime Cat-eye Liner

Hi ladies (and gentlemen too, of course)!

I am a licensed cosmetologist in the state of Indiana and I also work seasonally at the Sephora in my hometown.  This right here is my very first makeup tutorial, so I decided to keep it simple!  When I get more accustomed to using my camera for the purpose of these tutorials, I will most definitely show you more advanced makeup applications.  But as for now, I thought a simple cat-eye was perfectly fitting for my first time recording a tutorial.  Feel more than free to leave comments on here and/or the video I posted on YouTube.  Say anything: that I freaking sucked, that I was amazing, what other things you want to learn, any tips you may have yourself, or the cure of the common cold.  Whatever.  Enjoy!

Note: foundation, blush, contour, highlight, and brows were all done prior to the video.
