Natalie’s career in makeup artistry began in 2010 when she started a business as a consultant for a direct sales cosmetic company. After receiving her Associate’s Degree in Visual Art in 2009 makeup artistry was a natural career choice. She received her certification in makeup artistry from Lu Ross Academy in 2013. From there Natalie has grown her business, Bellizzimo Beauty, to a team of stylists beautifying brides all over the Central Coast. They have worked hundreds of weddings and photoshoots and she is excited to share her knowledge with other aspiring makeup artists as the demand for stylists grows.
