Evelyn - NYC Hair & Makeup Artisan

What makes your artistry unique? I have been told that I have a light touch and make the makeup look natural (for example making the foundation look like second skin). I like to enhance a woman’s best feature and not mask her beauty. A blend of things also make me unique from great client service, to high quality products, sanitation for my clients, and my thirst for knowledge to be the best that I can be in my craft.

What inspires you? Social media, everyday women, and other makeup artists inspire me every day.

Style Icon: Marilyn Monroe is my favorite style Icon because of her sensuality; she was comfortable in her own skin, sexy, powerful etc…

“The original blonde bombshell, Monroe exuded sensuality with every step she took; in fact, it's rumoured that the stilettos she wore always had one heel shaved down to achieve that slightly off-kilter gait, so she literally wiggled while she walked.”
