Describe your job at Givenchy
My job with Givenchy is basically if a makeup artist, a trainer, and a manager overseeing four states… had a baby. LOL I wear many different hats. I oversee my accounts at Sephora, travel like crazy from state to state training and teaching on products and how to use them, and am a featured artist in events nationwide. For example, next week I’ll be in Knoxville, Tennessee teaching a tiny class of five, and the day after I’ll be filming a video in New York. Just call me a traveling circus and follow my trail of glitter…
What’s the coolest part of your job?
I would have to say the travel and the opportunity to meet so many people from EVERY walk of life. Each city I go to has a culture of it’s own, a different fashion sense, a unique way of life I get to be a part of briefly.
One thing you totally kick ass in
I’d have to say executing a great makeup application. It’s my passion and I’m a bit of a perfectionist, so I will make sure it flawless. From beauty to fashion to drag to just crazy… I make sure it’s perfect! OH and taking weird, old objects and turning them into decorations! I’ve made a fork and spoon chandelier, a vintage birdcage curtain, an old TV jewelry box… and so on. I guess with both of these “talents,” and a lot of things in life, I see what could be, not what’s present.
Three things you can’t live without
