I’ve worked in the beauty industry for over 11 years as a certified makeup artist, skin therapist, beauty editor (and everything in-between). As my career has blossomed, so has my understanding for the everyday glamor gal. Beauty Queen was created as a guide to help steer readers through the confusing world of cosmetics, taking the guess work out of finding what’s best — all while nabbing a few great product recommendations and tips along the way.

Why the name "Beauty Queen" for your site?

It was a nickname my family gave me based on my obsession with all things beauty early on — and it has stuck through the years. When deciding a name for my website, there was no better choice... it's totally me!
