So a little about myself...I’'m Greek. My Big Fat Greek Wedding kind of Greek. I‘ve been doing makeup since I was 15. I’m a certified makeup artist with over 15 years of experience in this industry. I remember being a little girl and using nail polish as makeup for my Barbie's because regular makeup wouldn’t show up. I began working at MAC cosmetics in 2007 for about 8 years, and since then have had the opportunity to do makeup for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week for designers Adolfo Sanchez, Zombie Boy and Stevie Boy and be a makeup host for America’s Top Salon with hosts Carole Saland and Dwight Eubanks. I wake up everyday to pursue my dream. This doesn’t feel like work, it’s my passion. Do you know how incredible it feels to boost someone’s confidence by the talent that you’ve been given? Or to work with cancer patients who “haven’t felt beautiful since they began treatment” according to a lady I once was fortunate enough to work with. Or to make that young girl who told me she is too shy to make friends and is bullied to stop, look in the mirror, and show her that this makeup is simply enhancing her natural beauty and to walk with her head up, only for her to come back a week later with her mom and tell me that I changed her life. I have SO many truly inspiring stories that made me grow as a person. It’s not just “playing with makeup”, it’s about changing lives and my clients changing mine. Come out to support us on Wednesday, January 17th as we support one another! Best of luck to all the RAW artists! -Dia ...more
