My philosophy about skincare is this:
I didn't know until I went to school to get my license how important facials were and how crucial it is to exfoliate regularly, use the proper skincare with ingredients for your specific skin type and condition, and how UV rays destroy our skin. Therefor, my philosophy is, I want to educate you on what ingredients will work for you and help you understand the protocols to achieve comfortable, happy skin! It is a realistic goal.
What isn't realistic is the bombardment of images of youth and beauty that can make us feel inferior and like failures because we didn't start 20 years ago! There is no pressure to be someone you are not when you're at Gotham Goddess. I meet you where you are on the road that you're already on. I listen to you and I help you find happy skin.
My philosophy about make up is this:
My body of work spans over 20 years and I hope what I have posted in my gallery helps you see my versatility and passion for make up. Make up should never be a mask to hide beneath or a burden or obligation in any way. It's a choice women have to enhance what's already there. We are so lucky to have the option to wear make up when we want it and when we need it. To see it any other way is unnecessary. I want women of all ages to have fun with beauty and embrace the possibilities in front of them. As for me, I wear make up nearly everyday. My everyday life as a busy mother and New Yorker helps me understand what my clients need. When I teach women how to update their look during my Make Up Bag Makeover, I am doing it from the perspective of what would I want? How do I like to be mentored by my stylist or care provider? I want to help (and teach) women with their make up and brow grooming needs. Everything I recommend and use on my clients has been field tested by me. You can trust that I only use the best products and I follow strict hygiene methods and use clean tools and materials on my clients. Booking with me is easy and my prices are affordable.
