Nancy began her love of makeup as a child playing in her mothers makeup. She was the go to girl for makeup application in her high school for homecoming and prom. After high school, she apprenticed under a few local makeup artists while attending university. After receiving her Bachelor’s degree from FIU in Journalism and Mass Communication with her concentration in Public Relations, Nancy went on to receive her Master’s in Special Effects Makeup for T.V. and Film from The Joe Blasco Makeup Center in Orlando in 2010.
After graduating Makeup school, Nancy began working as a makeup artist for T.V. and Film landing her
first job working on the Charlie’s Angels T.V. show pilot on ABC in 2011. She then went on to work on the
80's musical film Rock of Ages, from there Nancy was hired as the Makeup Dept 3rd on ABC's Charlie's
Angels Reboot. She loved working with the "Angels" and had the best time working as Ramon Rodriguez's
makeup artist who was "Bosley" on the tv show.
After Charlie's Angels went off the air Nancy was asked to work on a few episodes of the USA Network

While working at a spa convention for AAI, Nancy discovered a lash extension booth and was so mesmerized watching the master lash stylist Daniel Long (Longmi lashes) at work she decided to take home a lash kit to try it on her mom (her favorite guinnie pig).
After taking her first lash course, Nancy became obsessed with lashes, rushing home from work every evening so she could practice on her mom and friends. Offering free lash sets to anyone who would lay down long enough. What began as a little hobby starting taking over Nancy's after hours because she started getting referrals from those free sets for people willing to pay her for her new hobby.
