My Journey

How I Became a Luxury Bridal Beauty Specialist

Nice to meet you! I am Katy a Luxury Makeup and Hair artist in Aventura, Florida.

Over 13 years of international experience as a Luxury Bridal Beauty Specialist have taught me that My Work is to enhance your natural beauty as an expression of your personality.

Love for hi-fashion and beauty has always been a very important part of my life. I was born in beautiful Venezuela, where beauty is a crucial part of our culture. Early on, I discovered makeup and hair as a way to express my vision of who I want to be and that led me to find the career I love. Through the years, I continue perfecting my craft and specializing in luxury beautyairbrush makeup, updos, and making you look and feel beautiful.

My Story

As a child, between visits to the hair salon with my mom, and my family's clothing factory, I learned to use beauty and fashion as ways to express myself and fell in love with the endless possibilities.  When I was a kid, I began to have a skin discoloration known as vitiligo. It was very noticeable on my eyelids and legs.

While searching for many treatments, my dermatologist suggested I try makeup, and that advice was the best gift I ever got! I started searching for the best makeup to cover my vitiligo and bring out my true self. With time, my love for makeup grew into a passion for luxury bridal beauty.

A few years later, my husband and I moved to Israel. In Israel, I returned to work for MAC, where I continued to receive constant training. 

In 2015 I expanded to the Luxury Bridal Beauty industry as well. On my first bridal photoshoot, I improvised updos, and people liked it. Inquiries for Hair services started, even before I knew how to blow dry properly. For months, I worked with assistants for prep and blowouts until I felt strong enough to do everything by myself. Then, I studied with one of the top Bridal Hair Stylists in Israel and began following all of the biggest Hair educators in the industry for inspiration. Continuing my education and becoming a cosmetologist in the Aveda Institute of South Florida

Airbrush Makeup

When I left MAC to become a freelance Luxury Bridal Beauty Specialist, many brides were inquiring also about Airbrush Makeup, so I decided to give it a try, went to Temptu, and found an Amazing Luxurious tool that made my art even more special. 

I continue studying to perfect my craft, learning from the masters in the industry about Updos, Hair Color, Teaching, Social Media, Marketing, Business Management, Skincare, and Makeup

My first makeup teacher was my mom. The women in my family are always very polished and made up. Since I can remember, I would see my mom doing her makeup and learn her tricks. When I was about ten, my mom took my sister and me to a beauty counter for a workshop, and since then, every time I would buy makeup (which was very often) I would ask for a makeup class. 

When I was 20 years old, I realized that I would visit the MAC store so much that I should just work there. They required that I would be a Makeup Artist, so I trained with a Makeup Artist for the Beauty Queens in Venezuela, and then started working at MAC, It was a dream job! where I received constant training in Trends and Techniques.

My Work

Brides are the most magical part of my work.

When I moved to South Florida, I was thrilled to know that I could do be a Bridal Beauty Specialist from the Keys to Palm Beach. I am Based in Aventura, but, I get to be part of magical luxurious wedding days all over South Florida and empower Brides through Beauty.

Editorial Artist - Photo and Video Shoots 

The magic of the set at a photo shoot is something I am addicted to. I produce my own Luxury Beauty and Bridal Editorials. I am grateful that Miami gives me the chance to work on the sets of exclusive music videos, TV, influencer content, blogger lifestyle shoots, hi-fashion editorials, catalogs, and personal branding.
