My love of all things beauty came about when I started reading Allure Magazine way back in 1991/2(who remembers the big issues?!) by way of my always fashion-forward Mom. I was always intrigued with the best of the best products and artists, so it’s only natural for me to be where I am today. My sister Indiana and I started off our beauty careers with positions at Chanel, Stila and Bobbi Brown, while also receiving my Cosmetology license. We were so enchanted with making clients feel beautiful that in 2008 we started The Makeup Dolls, to bring our passion and love of all things beauty to Weddings! After many years of hard work behind the scenes and doing makeup at weddings, Indiana has transitioned to her full time role of being an amazing Mom to my niece Ellington and nephew Desmond and a National Sales Manager.
My passion at The Makeup Dolls is to have you looking absolutely radiant, even with the slightest amount of makeup. As a Licensed Cosmetologist I specialize in ethereal, organic looking hairstyles and my makeup philosophy is to create looks that are delicate yet naturally glamorous. With being proficient in both hair and makeup, a cohesive look can be achieved so you feel effortlessly beautiful! I can be found at Le Reve Salon in Burlingame for color and styling needs, and I am always available for consultations or questions beauty related. Just drop me a line, Cheers!
