Makeup artist. Creator. Educator.
Thank you for stopping by the creative home of Armor+Adorn.
Please see my LinkedIn profile for a full resume of experience.
This little venture was born out of a strong desire to teach people the transformative nature of makeup and how it can be one of the greatest methods of self-expression.
Growing up I never thought that this would be a possibility. I was an insecure kid growing up in a very intimidating world with a traditional sense of beauty. I didn’t look like all the faces I saw in the magazines.
Makeup helped me realize that I could make my own interpretation of beauty and that I could make my outside inspire how I felt on the inside. Armor is your inner beauty, it keeps you strong and wise, open and inspired. Adorn is your outer beauty, what you do to express yourself. Be it purple hair and an ornate nose ring or the classic red lip and winged eye.
Ultimately, you need to be happy with who you are, both inside and out. I want you to feel like that beautiful bride, inspiring character, and fierce model. Perhaps, a mixture of them all.
As queen RuPaul once said, “we’re all born naked, and the rest is drag”.
