Andie fell into her career as a Chicago makeup artist completely by accident. She applied for a retail job after relocating to Chicago. To her surprise, the human resource manager saw something that was totally oblivious to her. Getting hired as a beauty consultant is when her passion for makeup was first ignited.
From there Andie had the privilege of securing positions such as Shiseido Regional Trainer, Borghese Account Executive, Marshall Field’s State Street Cosmetic Department Manager, and Sephora Northbridge Store Director. While Andie enjoyed the many challenges of these positions, she knew that her real passion lay in the interaction with her clients.
Getting back to her roots is what prompted the launch of her website in 2009 with a focus on commercial and on-location bridal makeup. Her specialties are airbrushing, creating customized looks for women of all ethnicities, and one on one makeup education. Her approach to good service is achieved through having fun, putting her clients at ease, listening, and educating her clients about their makeup and skincare needs.
Over the years, she has soaked up a lot of makeup tips and tricks. For Andie, the most rewarding feeling in the world is when she can empower women with those techniques and knowledge.
