MEET PAMELA

owner | lead makeup artist

Pamela has had artistic talent since before she could even walk. Her whole life she knew that she would make something out of her creativity and artistic abilities!

Out of high school, Pamela joined the Navy and served our country for six years. She attributes her discipline, time management skills, and attention to detail to her time spent serving in the Navy.

After a six month deployment and being away from her, at the time, one-year-old daughter, she knew her responsibilities as a mother came first. It was then she received an honorable discharge, and decided to get a degree in Sonography and become an Ultrasound Tech...

CHRISTINE

makeup artist

Like a true makeup lover, Christine’s interest in makeup artistry began long before her career in makeup did. Her interest in makeup started, like most girls, in high school.

Christine was in the color guard and can remember always showing up with fun stage makeup. It didn’t take long for her teammates to want the same look. Before competitions, all her teammates would line up in the bathroom or on the bus waiting for their turn getting one of Christine’s perfected cut crease with winged eyeliner look

elena

makeup artist

Art is a vision of world through a kaleidoscope. An artist is a person who perceives the word though an artistic prism, who reveals the beauty of nature and transmits to the audience through her/his work. Art was always part of my life. Since I was a little girl, I loved painting. I was painting anywhere and everywhere. My passion of painting on a canvas suddenly transformed to painting on the walls, fence, house, pavement, and even my father’s car. Thankfully, my parents....

LIZ

makeup artist

I was born in the Philippines and immigrated to America when I was 4 years old with very humble beginnings. I grew up in Groton / Mystic CT with a family of 5. I have two older brothers, which being the only girl made me into a tomboy for a better part of my teen years.

I was constantly playing sports and hung out with the guys. I loved playing rough and getting dirty. When I look back at the person I was then and how I present myself now; I never would have imagined that tomboy becoming...

Jaleesa

esthetician

As a teenager I would spend hours watching makeup tutorials on YouTube and always aspired to be a professional makeup artist. I decided to pursue my dream and attended the esthetics program at Academy Di Capelli. As the program went on, I realized that makeup and skincare go hand in hand in order to reach that “flawless look”. 

Needless to say, I fell in love with all things skincare! As someone who has struggled with problematic skin for years, I’ve witnessed firsthand what a good skincare regimen has done for my appearance and overall confidence. Which is why my biggest goal is to help others feel beautiful in their own skin!
