Professional Makeup Artist

Let your inner beauty shine for all the world to see. Makeup by Philly has been operating since 2003, when I decided to follow my passion for artistry in Beauty, Character, and Special Effects and transform it into a business. Since then, I’ve been helping people be their most beautiful or creative selves. No matter the style you want, I can make you look fabulous.

About Me

I am an accomplished Los Angeles based makeup artist with over 20 years experience. My training began with Make Up Designory in Burbank, where I studied beauty, character, and special effects makeup. I have always had a passion for the arts, and love working on a wide variety of projects. From working with brides, special events, award shows, photo shoots, to makeup on films, commercials and television shows.  Currently, I am contracted with Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. I started with Jedi Training Academy, and the infamous Aladdin, A Musical Spectacular just to mention a few, and now I have recently been recreating Marvel characters at the park! I am always excited for any new challenges and adventures. I have kept my looks always fresh and clean from working with Bobbi Brown, traveling in the southern California region, teaching and consulting women for over 15 years. My greatest gratification comes from fostering confidence in women and men. Helping them embrace their natural beauty. It's important to make any client feel good about themselves, and collaborating looks for them that are fitting for the job. 

 Now that I am in SLO County, I am continuing my career more on the bridal side or whatever comes my way, I am never limited. I will be attending SLO Mixers and other events.  I hope that I will be able to meet you in person.
