Bringing YOUR vision to LIFE
I am a creative, a perfectionist and care deeply about how my work impacts the beautiful humans who entrust me with their faces, their daughters, their mothers and their friends. Because of this fact, building relationships with each client is vital, as the process of unveiling your raw, authentic self is both intimate and sacred. Clients working with me will never feel judged, but instead heard and validated.
I fell in love with makeup in college, around 2010. I loved how far you could go with shade and light. It provided the possibility to alter how my face and body were perceived from day to day. I found that there was no right way to do “makeup”, instead it depends on your desired outcome. It depends on my goal. And this is when I realized even the sky is not the limit for the creative freedom makeup brought me. It brings joy to share this epiphany with the world.
As a makeup artist (MUA), I believe it is my job to not only provide amazing service, but to educate each person who sits in my chair. Education surrounding your skin, the best skin care products for it and how to replicate the looks we created together. Finally I want to remind you today, that regardless of what stunning look we are able to bring to life, you were already a masterpiece to begin with.
I can’t wait to create with you!
From our first interaction Sonjia was professional and extremely pleasant to work with. She made me feel so comfortable! She listened to what my vision was, and helped me to feel beautiful on my wedding day. I really appreciated Sonjia’s prompt communication and professionalism. She is genuinely a joy to be around! My mother NEVER wears make up and Sonjia helped her to find a look she was comfortable with and made her feel gorgeous! I cannot even say how meaningful that is!! I will 100% use Sonjia again."
