Stefanie has been doing makeup and skincare for over a decade, but has been passionate in art and color since childhood. She studied comic cartooning at San Francisco Academy of Art. While working on her Major in Animation, she realized her love of makeup ran far deeper than drawing did.
A new clothing and makeup store opened and immediately she became lead artist and store trainer for lines including Tony & Tina, TooFaced, Sugar, etc. After 2 years working with those lines, she was picked up by Paula Dorf, a New York-based line that was used on Friends and Sex in the City and used on clientele ranging from such superstar divas as Barbara Streisand and Cher, to Courtney Love and Courtney Cox. She received training for the line in San Francisco and headed up the Paula Dorf counter in Nordstrom, Valley Fair.
Stefanie has also received training in airbrush makeup, custom blending and spray tanning at Kase' Kosmetics Studio. Her work includes: music videos, magazine photo shoots, fashion shows, pinup shoots, bridal and album covers.
