I am a 29 year old Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist living in San Diego, California. I am a wife of 9 years, and a Mama to two rad kids- Sailor and Fin. I am a lover of beauty, fashion and all things girly. I have been in the beauty industry for 14 years, beginning my career fresh out of high school. Growing up, I always knew Makeup Artistry was something that would be a part of my life. In fact, I think I worked on my first "client" at age 5! My passion for beauty has allowed me to pursue my craft. While discovering my ability to manage others, I worked my way up the corporate ladder and found myself running one of the largest MAC Cosmetics stores on the West Coast. During that time I was able to be a part numerous fashion shows, plan and execute some of the stores largest events, I went through extensive trainings, and I was even able to work with a couple different celebrities. Not too long after having my babies, I knew I needed to break free from the corporate world. After trying to find a comfortable balance between my work and home life with no success, I decided to take a giant leap of faith to return to my passion of hands-on artistry. This was the beginning of King Cardoza Studio. King Cardoza Studio was a dream built by myself and best friend, Barri King (hence the name). She has since parted ways and is still one of my best friends! My time at home is spent coloring and crafting with my littles, managing my business and traveling with my family. I am active on the PTO (and yes I am the only Mama to show up in full glam to the Fun Run and parent teacher conferences). I am fortunate enough to feed my creative side through my Makeup Artistry. Some fun facts about me: I love to cook, I enjoy whiskey, and I grow as many things as I can in my backyard garden! I am beyond grateful for the opportunities and support that have been given to me along the way, and I can't wait to see what is yet to come. Follow my journey through my blog which will be launching very soon. There you will find a little bit of everything. I am a product junkie so expect to find everything from product reviews, makeup hauls, favorites, wish lists, giveaways, and current projects. I love to meet new people, so please pop on over and say Hello. Thanks for visiting my little corner of the web!
