My name is Stacy, and I am a professional makeup artist in the Chicagoland area. I have been a beauty junkie all my life. I performed in theatrical productions throughout my youth, and I was always excited when it came time to apply stage makeup. Begging my mom to take me to the department store makeup counters became a regular occurrence during my teenage years. I learned about the transformative power of makeup at an early age, and I still believe it today. Finally, I began sharing this passion by helping women look stunning on their special day
Aside from being a makeup artist, I am also a clinical therapist. Being a clinical therapist gives me a unique ability to listen to my clients and make sure that each one of them feels heard. Makeup is personal, and it is my priority to incorporate each client’s personality, preferences, and goals into their final look.
