Blades & Brushes is a fusion of my two passions, Figure Skating and Makeup. I have been actively involved in the skating world for over 34 years. I currently hold 17 US National Showcase figure skating titles in theatrical skating. Makeup is an essential key to bringing the costume and choreography to life. It was only natural that I wanted to advance my skills as makeup was such an integral part of showcase, so I began my journey. I worked for M·A·C Cosmetics for over 7 years in both Hawai'i and California at their flagship Pro Stores. I completed their final Fashion Show Certification in San Francisco. During my time with M·A·C, I had the incredible opportunity to work alongside some of the best artists in the world. I had the honor of working on the set of Niki Minaj's "Starship" music video that later went on to win the MTV Music Video of The Year. I was selected for their elite Impact Team which allowed me to travel and elevate my makeup artistry.
After leaving M·A·C, I wanted to open my own studio. Blades & Brushes opened in 2017. Our first year was filled with amazing new clients and opportunities, a makeup and choreography workshop in Malmo Sweden, U.S. National Showcase Theatrical Skating Championships, and of course all our beautiful brides and special occasion appointments.
We are looking forward to bringing your makeup dreams to life!
