Hi - nice to meet ya! My friends call me Prissy and I was born and raised in Weslaco, Texas. I now live in Houston with my husband, who is also my best friend, our teenage daughter, and three fur babies. We also have two boys who are out of the house and missed.
My career in makeup began in 2008. I started out as a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant where I learned the importance of skincare as well as how to match foundation to women's skin tone and the basics of applying color makeup.
Fast forward to 2012 and I began entertaining the thought of applying makeup on women for a living. I let her friends and family know and from there I was asked to do makeup for certain events. After doing this as more of a hobby for a year, I decided to turn this into a business. As a freelance makeup artist, I do not work for nor represent one brand and enjoy the liberty of using many high end/professional artistry brands on my clients.
I enjoy the art of makeup but most importantly, have a passion for making women feel beautiful. I love how something as simple as a tube of lipstick can make a woman feel amazing, powerful like she can conquer the world and stand taller. Seeing a woman at the peak of her self confidence is amazing and to know that I helped create that gives me joy.
As a little girl, one of my favorite memories is playing with my mom’s makeup. I loved looking at all the colors (lots of blues, bright pinks, and reds) and cherished the little bit of makeup she let me have. Back then, Mary Kay had tiny little bullet lipstick samples. She gave me a box full of those and it was one of my childhood highlights. My mom taught me how something as simple as makeup could help a woman tap into her self esteem. To this day, my mom’s signature look is a red lip.
