ABOUT THE ARTIST
Des is a Makeup Artist located in Los Angeles California. Her passion for makeup artistry started at the tender age of 15. She was infatuated with fine art that she took the inspiration and started creating her own art on paper and canvas. Her personal connection to art is perpetual and stimulated her human thirst to go beyond her regular medium and try something different - more unique with no boundaries. She was constantly told by her art teachers that being a makeup artist was a dying field and there was no way she would find success or make money. She proved them wrong.
As a freelance artist she continues to excel in the field of artistry by opening herself to new thoughts and ideas passed down from mentors as well as peers. She is trained in color theory and has many experiences in photographic work, HD work, and commercial work under all lighting conditions.
Des has the innate ability to bring out the natural beauty of her subject, no matter the gender, ethnicity, or character portrayal. She enjoys mastering every detail of flawless, intense, dramatic and artistic makeup.
Along with being a Makeup Artist, Des is a wife to an amazing, supportive man. They have been together for 15 years. She is a mother of a creative 18 year old who will be starting college in the fall. She travels the world on her spare time for work and play. Des credits her continued success to her desire to give back to her community. She has always made time in her busy schedule to donate her talent and energy to a list of valuable causes.
