About Me

I am Meghan, and I love my job... My secret? It took me years of wanting to be a makeup artist before I could even admit it out loud … let alone attempt to make it a reality.

EVERYTHING CHANGED WHEN I STOPPED CHASING WHAT I THOUGHT I “SHOULD” BE DOING, AND I STARTED CHASING WHAT I WANTED TO BE DOING.

After 10 years of professional makeup, I've worked with hundreds of wedding parties, taught so many great makeup classes and met so many great people. 

If you have a dream in your heart, or a vision for your life... Never give up on that one thing you love.
