Glam In Japan
I love enhancing a client's natural beauty and showing them how to replicate the look for themselves. It's a collaborative process, so I make sure the client feels good about the kind of makeup that is being used and the overall look.
It's incredibly fun and rewarding! I love the transformation and passing on my knowledge of techniques and products.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I like to have a chat (free, of course!) via phone or email first to determine goals and expectations for the duration of the lessons. This is a time for us to find out a little about each other and for you to make sure you've found a good fit!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have certificates in both hair styling and makeup artistry.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
1 hour session: $50
How did you get started teaching?
I was asked for lessons by someone for whom I had previously done their makeup for an event. I discovered I enjoyed it very much so I decided to do it again!
What types of students have you worked with?
Women who are new to makeup, who just want a new everyday look, or women who want a full makeover and the skills to replicate it on their own.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
My husband allowed me to practice some special effects makeup techniques on him recently. It was hilarious to see the wacky results, and touching that he was so supportive.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Have fun with it! Makeup should make you feel good, and there are no real rules. Hire someone you think you will click with and whose portfolio you like.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Do I have any allergies?
Am I comfortable with having someone demonstrate how to apply makeup on myself?
