She has worked with celebrity clients, countless brides, fashion, commercial, and beauty industry leaders. She is all about making her clients experience perfect with her unforgettable personality, attention to detail, and ability to put you at ease.
Growing up in the industry, Hope got her start as a model for Barbazon and Docherty Modeling Agencies at age 16. This childhood experience grew into a life long dream for her, every day living in the new trends of fashion + make-up.
2003 started her foundation as a make-up artist. Hope started off at Estee Lauder, then made her way around the counters working with Clinique, Channel, and settling in as a resident artist for Dior. While training with national artists for 3 years at Dior, Hope started to work one-on-one with brides. During this time she knew this would be a big focus of her career moving forward. In 2013 Hope then took a position with Bobbi Brown where she currently puts her skills to use daily as a resident make-up artist.
