For how long have you worked in the wedding industry? What is it that makes weddings so special to you?

Black Lash Makeup is on a mission to help women be comfortable wearing makeup. They also want them to understand that being beautiful means being your best self. Because of this, I find weddings to be a natural fit for me. Not many people would want to look unrecognizable on their wedding day. Each wedding is unique, and I love being a part of something so special and personal to someone’s family. It’s a very special experience to spend a wedding day with the bride and her family.”



In a few sentences, how would you describe your personality?

“I am an extrovert – someone who is always eager to meet new people. If I say that I will do something, I am a ‘doer.’
I will. “I’m passionate about family, my job, holidays, cocktails, spending time with friends and helping women feel beautiful as they are!”

Why did you get into the wedding industry?

“I think I started doing weddings initially because I thought it was the only way to survive my industry. I didn’t believe there was enough work to sustain me without them. I have indeed changed my mind, and now I continue to do weddings because I think that I can offer something to the non-make-up-wearing world. I want to make people feel beautiful on their wedding day. Not just when they see themselves in photos but also when they look in the mirror. I want to offer brides exceptional service with clear communication and no stress. “I think that balancing creativity with running a reliable and efficient business is important, especially in the wedding industry.”



“Oh my gosh, each one is unique and memorable.” My wedding stories are very personal, and I love working with my friends in the industry. The wedding of Jacqui & Anna will forever hold a place in my heart. I was honored to have been able to calm their nerves in the days leading up to the wedding. I have made lifelong friendships with a family that I help occasionally and who show me how to deal with life’s challenges in a dignified and graceful manner. “I’m lucky that our paths met when they did.”



What is the most inspiring thing about your work?

“I love skin! “I love skin!” I do not believe that you can achieve flawless makeup without spending time and effort to make your skin look the best. This is why I often refer brides to a beauty therapist for consultations about treatments that will make their skin look and feel its best on their wedding day. I am inspired by any makeup look that makes the skin the star. It’s important to strike the right balance between flawless makeup and glowing makeup.
