Certified Makeup Artist and Airbrush Tanning Artist
When I moved to Los Angeles in 2012, I was looking for a job. But I didn’t just want any old job I was seeking my passion.
After owning a restaurant in Germany and working in the Hotel business for many years, I wasn’t going back to that life; I wanted to be creative! My husband works in the Movie industry I thought, “How can we work together in the future?” well, I always wanted to work in the beauty industry, so I applied and was accepted into the Master Class at the Cinema makeup school.
Shortly after graduation, however, I became pregnant and realized that doing makeup on film and television sets wouldn’t work out. Having the dream of becoming a mother fulfilled immediately consumed all of my focus. There was time for painting faces later, right?
Fast forward about 2 years, and I am scrolling along on Instagram, and I saw some pictures of girls getting spray-tanned. They looked so good, so happy. I decided this might just be my path. I wanted to empower women, to make them glow with confidence (and a great tan, of course!). I started my research and became certified. I did my first Spray tan in 2017. I kept it strictly as a side job primarily because I wanted to be with my daughter as much as possible.
Gradually I started to build my Instagram portfolio and did a lot of collaborations. Over time it became more prominent in my life. That is when I decided to go pro and established Instaglam@Tan LLC.
