Get To Know Me
Welcome to Smudge!! I am the owner and operator of Smudge Makeup and want to thank you for taking the time to visit my page and see what we are all about. I look forward to hearing from all of you!
In 2014 I attended Marinello School of Beauty in Niantic, Connecticut where I was trained in skincare, waxing, and makeup by the best teachers anyone could ask for. I spent my hours there practicing my makeup skills on my classmates and clients. When I graduated I was offered an opportunity to work with a Connecticut makeup artist, and I jumped on it in a heart beat. In fall of 2015 I joined as a makeup artist on the That Girl...team, owned by Kelly Hart. Through this business I gained more knowledge of the industry, learned from the best, and had some amazing opportunities. I had been published in several magazines; Gladys Magazine, Tied in a Bow Magazine, The Wedding Day Sourcebook, Love Inc. Magazine. to name a few. My work was also aired on NBC CT and Better CT. I even got to work on a few films while on the That Girl...team; House Rules, Loud, and Christmas All Over Again. Thanks to Kelly I gained confidence in my field. Although working as the lead makeup artist on the team was great, I had a greater vision that I desired to fulfill and Smudge was created.
In my native culture smudging is a ceremony that is done in order to purify the body, aura, energy, and space. I have the same concept with my clients. My clients will always leave feeling refreshed and confident. Smudge is all about making women feel beautiful and confident in their own skin. It is very important to me that my clients know how beautiful they are without the makeup and that I am simply enhancing their features, not changing them.
This year $5 of every service will be donated to Safe Futures in New London, CT. The mission of Safe Futures Inc: To Improve Lives, Restore Hope, and Change The Future For Those Impacted By Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Trafficking, and Stalking In Southeastern Connecticut. As a survivor myself I am making it my personal mission to do my part in making sure that women have the correct resources to receive help. Every Thursday I post facts and resources on social media. If you'd like to help in our efforts to help, please also consider donating to https://www.gofundme.com/f/43vub-support-for-survivors.
We look forward to hearing from you!
