Favorite Wedding Movie: Bridesmaids! This may come as a surprise(not!) but I’m not really into the sappy, romantic movies! Haha
Makeup Item you cannot live without: Definitely mascara. Right now my favorite is Bad Gal Lash by Benefit.
Guilty pleasure: Anything/everything sweet! I pretty much always have candy of some kind in my purse 🙂 Watching funny videos on YouTube with my boyfriend. And spending as much time as possible with our completely adorable dog Olivia! (We’re slightly obsessed with her!)
How many times have you been a bridesmaid? 2 and a flower girl once 🙂
What is your dream wedding gown? Something with lace and/or a bow! Probably more simple than anything crazy and definitely something comfortable!!
Why did you choose to become a MUA/ hairstylist? I have always loved doing hair and makeup! I got my start by cutting my little sister’s hair when I was 5 and after her hair grew back(haha) I would use her and other friends to practice on. I even had a “portfolio” of my work! As much as I loved hair and makeup, I never really thought of it as a career choice until I was halfway through my third year of college. I was always the go to person for hair and makeup help for my sorority sisters so when I realized that I was not happy with my major(again) they put the idea of cosmetology school in my mind. Two weeks later, I enrolled at Robert Paul Academy in Timonium, MD and never looked back! I am so grateful to be able to do what I love and have the opportunity to be a part of so many people’s wedding day!
Have you ever had a beauty disaster? Well, not really a disaster but let’s call it a beauty(life) lesson. My hair has always been completely straight. So, when I was in middle school, I obviously wanted curly hair. After begging my mom for months, she finally(reluctantly) took me to get a perm. It was pretty much the worst idea ever. I was obviously made with straight hair for a reason! I straightened my hair every single day until that perm was gone and I’d like to think I listened to my mom a little more…at least until my hair was straight again! 🙂
