|AR:||Tell us about yourself.|
I'm Brittany, born and raised in Harlem, NYC. I currently live in LIC with my husband and two kids. I've been a working makeup artist for 12 years, originally beginning in fashion and segued into the celebrity space in 2018. I'm absolutely a people person first. I love the intimacy and social aspect of work! There is also no greater feeling than a client looking in the mirror and thinking "damn, I'm a bad b*tch!" A hidden-ish passion of mine is comedy writing. I've written for Viacom years ago and pitched several series pilots with a partner over the past few years.
|AR:||Describe your earliest beauty memory.|
My earliest beauty memory, interestingly enough, was when I was in high school. For the longest time I refused makeup. I swore I didn't need it! Until I got my glam done for a close friend's birthday party with her and realized it was completely reinventive and an accessory more than a necessity. That's when I opened up to the idea of makeup. Secretly, I enjoyed watching my aunts put it on. My Aunt Dominique would perform at balls and watching her get bedazzled was always so incredible to me. My mom is and always has been an avid red lipstick wearer and for a woman of dark skin and a killer smile she FLEXED TF out of it! My other aunts were the quintessential uptown girls with the black lip liner, nude center, thin brows, and fake mole. To watch them get ready to go out was really my everything even though I didn't experiment until much later. I'm always so grateful my friend forced me to get my glam done that day. It helped me embrace something I was clearly itching to do.
