I love everything beautiful. As a young girl growing up in Brazil, I loved giving my friends and cousins makeovers. I wanted everybody to look and feel pretty. It just made me happy. When I was 16, I moved to Florida, where I got my first job as a make-up artist for Suzanne Morel Cosmetics. It was there that I began to learn professional techniques. After that growing experience, I studied make-up artistry for the film and television industry at the Berger Institute of Production Technology.
I got my start in the world of print and commercial advertising working for photographer Rick Gomez. Twenty years later, I'm proud to say I've had my work featured in various magazines including Prevention, Woman's World, Parenting, American Baby, USA Today, Beanstalk, Scholastic, Healthy Pregnancy, Lifestyle, and Remedy MD, to name a few. Being fluent in English, Portuguese and Spanish has allowed me to work with international clients and a broad spectrum of talent. Some of my favorite clients include Crocs, Ameritrade, AT&T, Blackberry, Colgate, Brain Fit, Florida Tourism and Koerich.
I started working with brides four years ago, when I moved to Chicago. Immediately, I started getting requests for natural, organic products. Luckily, as a vegan I always carry cruelty-free/vegan products. That's when I decided to grow my business into an all-natural, vegan/cruelty-free company. I'm so happy I did!
As a lover of art and beauty, I also enjoy cooking, interior decorating, fine art, architectural tours, theater, film, music, and great writing
Patricia was AMAZING, and I am 100% satisfied! I booked Patricia for wedding hair/make-up for myself and my bridal party. I was a little nervous because this was my first experience with professional hair/make-up, so I definitely wanted something very, very natural. I was thrilled with the result: super-light airbrushing that lasted through an unseasonably hot 90+ degree outdoor wedding day, a smoky eye that made my Asian features pop, and a 1/2 up 1/2 down hairstyle that survived rooftop winds. My bridesmaids LOVED their looks, too, and Patricia was spot on with matching our looks with our personalities. Not only did Patricia nail our hair/make-up, but also, we really enjoyed hanging out with her! She is very friendly and personable, as well as professional. She was 20 minutes early and prepared for all our requests, which included adding on extra services day-of. Book with Patricia, and you will not be disappointed!!
Patricia went above and beyond in making me feel amazing on my wedding day! Her skills are impeccable and she did a fantastic job on my makeup as well as my mother-in-laws. I received so many compliments on my makeup and it lasted for more than eight hours while still looking flawless. In addition to her talent, Patricia is warm, kind, and engaging. I continue to sing her praises and would recommend her for any time you want to get your makeup done and look absolutely amazing!
Such a great experience! Patricia was early, prepared, and so friendly. She did an amazing job on my airbrush makeup and lashes!
Patricia did a fantastic job doing my hair & make-up for a cocktail event. She gave me the best beachy waves I've ever had, and the make-up was flawless. She followed my inspiration photos well. She is also very prompt, and fun to chat with during the appointment. I recommend Patricia!
Patricia was great! I was getting head shots for the first time and she gave me a lot of fantastic advice and did an amazing job on my hair and makeup. She was early, and I had time left over before my photo shoot.
Patricia completely nails the "glam" look. After rocking my makeup trial, she did my wedding make up and the makeup for my bridal party and mom. Everyone looked so glamorous and beautiful but still natural and not overdone. She's amazing at the smokey eye and contouring (which I wanted) and we got so many compliments. She's also so easy to work with and very sweet and fun - a great energy to have on your big day.
TV make up looked professional but gorgeous just like I wanted. Every person commented how great the make up looked. And she is a lovely person. Uses only VEGAN products too - bonus!
Patricia did an amazing job for my wedding and was awesome to work with to boot! She made me feel comfortable even though I don't wear a lot of makeup usually and was going full on airspray and lashes. She made me look great without looking super done up and I got TONS of compliments on my makeup. Loved how it looked in photos from friends. Can't wait to see the professional photographers pics. Can't wait to work with her again!
Patricia was so wonderful and nailed the look I want for my wedding on the first shot! She is so knowledgeable and quelled my anxiety about not knowing how to convey what I wanted to look like. I'm looking forward to working with her on the day of my wedding.
Patricia listened and added to my initial vision with true artistry! Her attention to the skin made for a beautiful look in-person and in photos. She also did an excellent job with my hair; it stayed secure all night.
I had an excellent experience with Patricia. She did an updo for me early in the morning at a hotel. She arrived exactly on time, and did a complicated updo in less than 30 minutes. The outcome was exactly what I had hoped for. I could not have been happier.
Patricia is wonderful - takes the time to understand exactly what you want, pays attention to your skin to make sure your makeup is taking to your skin type, and has no problem starting all over to get color just right. I never felt like she was in a hurry; I felt that she was there for me and wanted to make sure my wedding day look was absolutely perfect. Highly, highly recommend Patricia!
Patricia was great to work with! She was super knowledgeable and figured out what would work best on me quickly. Her products were top notch too. I received lots of compliments!
Patricia is such a sweetheart! She arrived 15 minutes early for my bridal hair and makeup trial, and I was very impressed with her set up. One thing I really appreciated was that not only were her brushes clean to begin with, but she also cleaned them again before using them on me. She was incredibly thorough, and explained what she was doing as she was doing it. I had a great time getting to know her, and the end result looked fantastic.
Patricia was amazing! She came and did make-up and hair for my Mom and I as we were attending a Gala. Her experience allowed her to create looks for across generational preference my Mom likes "Big Hair":-) We both received compliments throughout the night on how beautiful we looked and our make-up lasted the entire time. I never even had to re-apply my lipstick!! In addition to her talent, she is a lovely person. Definitely recommend and will definitely look forward to an occasion to work with Patrica again!
Patricia was amazing and I'm so glad I used her for my wedding! She understood exactly what I was looking for, which was impressive since I gave her very vague guidance that I wanted to look "natural" and "like myself" without specific ideas or pictures. By the end of our session, I trusted her opinions more than my own and was so happy with the final product. She arrived early and was so friendly with the entire group. I would recommend Patricia to any of my friends and would love to work with her again!
Patricia was extremely professional, on time, and did my make up perfectly. I received so many compliments! Would definitely book her again.
Patricia arrived early and ready to go... A great listener, she considered my request and then made my wish turn into a perfect dream! My idea of a simple up do turned into the prettiest and most long-lasting up do I have ever had. Patricia was a total professional and I will definitely book her again.
