Hi! I’m Ivy and I really do wake up for makeup. I studied art in college and was a graphic designer in the ad agency world until my makeup dreams intervened. I am a freelance makeup artist and previously served as Operations Consultant and Senior Education Consultant & Certified Color Artist for Sephora. I was a finalist in the 2014 Allure Beauty Blogger Awards and top 5 nominee in the 2015 Blo Beauty Blo-gger of the Year Awards.

BORING BUT IMPORTANT STUFF
I believe that makeup is an art form. I have a Bachelor’s degree in art, but I am not an esthetician or cosmetologist. I share things that work for me and my skin type but they may not work for you. Please consult a dermatologist before beginning a new skincare routine or trying a new product on sensitive skin.
