cos- tume shop fas- cination. She talks about skin

fl aps and oozing pustules with the excitement of a young boy over all things “gross.” When she moved to Colorado Springs to live and train at the Olympic Training Center, she met an employ- ee at the local makeup and

that encouraged her to go further with her art form.

“After meeting Mark at Zeezo’s one Halloween, I was like ‘I need to get better at this. I’ve got to learn some things to get better at this.’ He introduced me to air- brushing and gore and I kind of went crazy with it,” she said. “When I fi rst moved

here, it was a good source of side income because it’s a lot of freelance work and obviously can work around my travel schedule. Luckily I happened to know a lot of photographers in town that I spent a lot of time with that I did magazine and model shoots. When I moved back to Kentucky, I kind of passed that off and went to the real world for a while. I don’t do a lot of the basic income work anymore but love to make up my friends for Hallow- een and if there’s an event in town, I’m going to get dressed up and have great makeup or teach the women in my life because people come to me all the time and I can help with that because there’s a science behind it. It’s all shadows and simple if you think of it in highlights,

shadows, how you want your face to look and you can change yourself signifi cantly with makeup – that’s what we do as makeup artists!” But fi tting in makeup work

with her work at an area school district and training full time has proven diffi cult, outside occasionally making up fellow athletes for Hallow- een. Some looks, such as a Medusa look and wig she did for Halloween, take more than ten hours to complete. “You

have to develop

patience,” she said. “Think of what we do as shooters here, it’s mind-numbingly slow. I was a drawer as a kid and could do really detailed pencil drawings. Leave me in a room for four hours and I’ll draw you a really fancy cat. It’s not much different than that.”
