YOGA. MAKEUP. WHAT'S THE CONNECTION?

Yomakeup evolved as I sought to find a way to incorporate the gifts I learned through yoga teacher training into my cosmetic career.  While managing a M.A.C. counter I had the honor of interacting with countless women. I discovered that the timeless beauty of every woman, the glow that lingers long after the makeup is washed away, lies deep within.  A secret place of strength, serenity, love, peace, hope and astounding courage.

YOGA:

I discovered yoga during a time when loss, stress and grief seemed to manifest themselves in every area of my life.  At first it was the simple act of conscious breathing that I connected with.  Breathing relaxed my nervous system and mind, creating a safe place in my day.  As I continued practicing I was delighted to find that yoga continually evolved to meet my growing needs: physically, mentally and emotionally. Yoga has manifested in my life a deep sense of peace, safety and unconditional love. There is a unity I cherish by practicing with my surrounding community. Breathing together and moving in unison connects a room full of strangers or friends and family. 

I completed my Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Certified Teacher Training in 2013 with Corepower Yoga, at the Grant Street studio in Denver, Colorado.  Over the last eight years I have been honored to have the opportunity to build relationships and learn from the most talented and inspired instructors!

MAKEUP:

The concept of makeup artistry at Yomakeup is rooted in the belief  that makeup is a tool to reflect the beauty that already exudes from every woman.  Products, technique and application will vary for each client depending upon her definition of beauty.  Some ladies vamp up with a voluptuous cherry red lip, and others shimmer with a petal glazed pout.
