Hi there, my name is Liz and I’m a Chicago based makeup artist. It all started back in 5th grade when I would sneak into my Mom's old eyeshadow and cover my eyelids in ice blue shadow. Kids are fearless that way. The thing is, I never did stop playing with makeup. I didn't know playing with makeup could be a career until I stumbled into a job with CHANEL Cosmetics four years ago. I did the occasional wedding for friends but never considered a full-blown career in the beauty industry. topped to think about making that my full time gig. Even after I graduated from beauty school for esthetics I still didn't consider makeup artistry as a career. What I’ve come to love the most is learning about the person sitting in a chair. My world has been torn wide open from the stories and experiences my clients have shared with me.
When my hands aren't completely covered in makeup I love to explore new neighborhoods in Chicago or settle into my favorite chair with a book and coffee. My favorite coffee places in Chicago are Damn Fine Coffee, La Colombe, and Sip of Hope. And even more importantly, my favorite red lipsticks are Russian Red from MAC and Rouge Tentation from CHANEL
