meet michelle,

makeup artist  music lover  travel enthusiast

After discovering a zest for beauty and self-expression at a young age, I set out on a journey to develop my own signature style as an artist. Throughout the years I’ve experimented, tested, played and ultimately landed on a technique that is elevated, natural and timeless.

Your time spent with me should be a breath of fresh air amidst the chaos of a special day. I’ll bring the tunes, the ideas, and the energy. All you have to do is show up, relax and be ready to feel like the “Hollywood” version of yourself – glowing, radiant, and ready for your close up!

A NYC-based artist passionate about helping you feel your best on the most special days of your life.

is fresh, glowing and embodies “timeless glamour.” I have always loved natural makeup with just enough glam to make you feel like an elevated version of yourself. When you’re looking back at your photos years from now, I want you to feel just as effortlessly gorgeous as you did on the day they were taken. 

In addition to my “less is more” approach to beauty, I put collaboration at the forefront of everything I do. When you’re working with me, you have a teammate you can trust, standing by your side with an encouraging smile, a killer playlist, and all the restaurant recommendations you could ever ask for (just kidding...kind of).
