Garbens2016 (41)I am a licensed makeup artist/cosmetologist with 8 years experience and am based out of Denver, CO. I have always had a passion for makeup for as long as I can remember. I believe that what sets me apart from other artists is my passion and excitement for what I do! I specialize in photographic, bridal, and special event makeup. I only use the highest quality makeup and always practice sanitization.

I went to cosmetology school at the Aveda Institute Denver. My focus at the time was on hair, but after working in many salons there seemed to be a shortage of stylists who wanted to do makeup. That’s when I decided to dive into more training and education for makeup. Since then I have trained domestically and internationally, worked Aveda’s Congress runway show, been published, and have done my own TV segment for Good Living By Design.

When I am not working I love spending time with my family and friends, snowboarding, and reading good books!
