Susan began her career shortly after moving to New York City in 1988. Her interest in fashion and beauty soon led her to the world of cosmetics. The transformational quality of makeup always intrigued Susan and she found great satisfaction in applying it on her friends and family, who had become the subjects of her passion. A close friend suggested she pursue a career and before long a talent was realized.
With over 20 years experience as a makeup artist, Susan has been sought after by fashion and music industry's most recognizable names. Her client roster includes Shania Twain, Jennifer Nettles (Sugarland), Scarlett Johansson, Cameron Diaz, and Sandra Bullock. Her advertising clients include, Max Factor, Sephora, L'Oreal, and Victoria’s Secret. Susan's work has been in Elle, Vigue, Glamour, and Numero Beaute.
As a makeup artist, Susan's greatest pleasure is simple; to make a woman look and feel beautiful. Energized and excited by the colors and textures of cosmetics themselves, Susan approaches her work with a painterly perspective. The finished look, whether it be minimal or highly dramatic, is always guided by her aesthetic vision, using it to transform the blank canvas of an unmade face into a work of art.
