As early as I can remember I have been fascinated by hair and makeup styles. It was 1970, I must have been about 3, I remember begging my Mom to put makeup on me and let me wear one of her falls and for her to take a picture of course.
That picture of my 3 years old self all made up with a big smile on my face really encapsulated my true spirit. As I grew up, I knew I wanted to do something to help others but my love of glam never wavered. It is with these two convictions I was destined to work in the beauty industry.
It is no mistake that I found myself working first as a makeup artist. I really loved helping others feel better about themselves, it was always so fulfilling. I later studied to become an esthetician and I have never looked back. I have also spent many years in professional sales and as VP of Sales for two major skincare and makeup brands. I have loved every step of my journey in the industry. I have been fulfilled in every way and it has never felt like work.
I pinch myself as I still cannot believe I get paid to talk about skincare and makeup all day. I have absolutely loved every career turn and my journey has never been dull. I have made some amazing friends working in beauty. I am truly blessed to still be a part of this amazing industry.
This year I was inspired to begin The Beauty Debut Podcast.
The Beauty Debut Podcast is a look behind the velvet curtain of what it is really like to work in Beauty. The Good, The Bad and the Catty.
I have always wanted to find a way to give back to the industry which has given me so much. After 28 years in beauty I have heard and seen it all and there are so many great stories to tell.
The Beauty Debut is a big love letter back to the industry. I want to give people a behind the scenes look at what it is really like to work in all aspects of Beauty. I want to highlight the amazing stylists, makeup artists, industry spa professionals, estheticians, and vendors who make it all happen.
Each of our career journeys are unique yet all connected and familiar and this is a way for us to support each other. No matter where you are in your career, it is never too late to make your debut.
