"I love makeup. It has the power to transform, giving you a chance to completely change your look from day-to-day. You can enhance or exaggerate your features, you can be soft and natural or edgy or over-the-top glamour. Makeup also allows you to camouflage imperfections or add bone structure (without going under the knife) using contour and highlighting techniques, just to name a few. The best part is, it just washes off!

I've been doing makeup pretty much ever since I begged my mom to wear it. Since 14 I've been experimenting with my passion. At that age, friends of mine in their 20's would ask me how I did my makeup and wanted tips. I went to BOCES and took a cosmetology course but quickly realized that hair was not my passion, and after some time working in the corporate world I have been able to pursue my dream full-time.

I became interested in doing makeup because I have big eyes and I wanted to learn how to play them up. The first eyeshadows I owned were gold, silver and pink (it was the 80's) which are colors I still use. I love seeing how someone can come out of their shell and maybe find an alter-ego or just a little more confident version of themselves. All it takes is a little shimmer here and some shadow there. I love getting dolled up and sometimes all it takes is a bold red lip and some winged black liner to bring out your inner Marilyn or Audrey. I love brides and feel honored when entrusted to do their makeup on their special day. I love doing makeovers as well, I also have had the amazing experience of making up the ladies for the Discovery Store Fashion Show.

I love working with Believe. Lisa has created a special place that has a wonderful creative energy and I'm so glad to be there!"
