Makeup and skincare has been a passion all my life, although I didn’t realize it would one day turn into a career. My mom has pictures of me on the bathroom counter putting any and everything in the medicine cabinet on my face! I remember always being curious about ways to clear up my acne and take better care of my skin. It wasn’t until I was performing professionally in Pigeon Forge, TN that I learned about makeup application and beauty. I believe that time to be the most instrumental in shaping me into the woman I am today and molding my passion for makeup. I also do hair as well and am always learning new techniques. I always remember my step-dad saying if I found a career I loved, I’d never have to work again. His words ring true every time I get to do my job and work with wonderful people.
Makeup is my medium for human connection and I can’t wait to meet you…
Stay Curious, Lacey
