I Got Into Makeup by Accident...
But I got into teaching makeup by purpose.

Let's be real...

There is an insane amount of information out there about being a makeup artist.

When I first started Makeup to Go that wasn’t the case at all.  Back then, there were very few artists sharing their experiences of working in the ‘Biz and what it’s actually like. Nowadays – while there is a lot of content being shared – there’s still not a lot of real-world knowledge that will truly move the needle in your makeup career.

I’ve been a working media makeup artist for over 25 years, and a makeup educator for over a decade. A lot has changed – yes – but the foundations of what makes a lasting career are the same as ever.

I want to help new, emerging, and/or pivoting artists have their A HA! moment and bridge the gap between wanting to be a makeup artist and having a meaningful, long-term career.

I want to make your career journey easier. it is possible to work in this industry without slogging through endless uninspiring, unsatisfying, low-pay, dead end gigs...

Let’s elevate your artistry, expand your skillset, increase your media makeup biz knowledge, and up your brand, so you can high jump over the madness, and land on the path to the career you really want.

The more you focus in on the zone of your "A-HA!", the easier it is to achieve a lasting career

6-figure careers don’t just happen, but I can show you the path to working on meaningful projects that build into a real career not just a series of random gigs.
Elevated artistry, knowing your biz, and curating your presentation, in alignment with your artistic vision will lift you above the fray and enable you to consistently land real jobs, with real clients, at real rates.
