Since becoming a mother in 2008, I have grown acutely aware of the foods we eat, the ingredients we consume and the products that my family and I use. The more educated I become, the more I strive to choose healthier options. In 2013, I took it a step further and upgraded my makeup and skincare routine to include toxin free and organic products as well. I have researched the industry extensively, tested hundreds of products on myself and my clients and put them to the test under real life conditions. The significant improvement in formulas, the incredible increase in performance and the luxury feel of these products have proven to me that we don't have to sacrifice our health for beauty and I had to incorporate them into my business. Many of the images that appear on my site were created using luxury toxin free products.
I am excited to be the first makeup artist in Chicago to offer my clients the option of one hundred percent safe, toxin free and organic makeup services. I have found that products with more natural and soothing ingredients result in an application with fewer skin reactions and this is an important factor when having your makeup done for the big day or any special event. Although my preference is to choose toxin free as much as possible, my philosophy has always been about balance. I understand that trends may move in a direction that the safe and organic industry hasn't caught up with yet and for that reason, I always show up prepared to offer my clients exactly what they need and carry two kits with me.
