A note from Roxy;

"I am often asked how I got started in makeup... Well, long story short - I stepped out of my comfort zone!

What started off as a hobby, getting friends and family ready for special occasions - has flourished, with hard work and dedication, into a career and I couldn't be more excited to share my love for makeup artistry with the world.

But, it wasn't always this way... In the fall of 2004, I was accepted and enrolled to attend Temple University in Philadelphia for Law. Against the recommendations of my family and friends I decided to take a moment for myself, and hold off on schooling, to travel.

In the midst of my worldly adventures and travels on a whim, I met a photographer who convinced me to model. After a painful attempt, I admitted I was on the wrong side of the camera and my true passion was on the working side - with my makeup brushes. This photographer, Harry Connor of Connor Portraits, must have seen my eagerness to pursue makeup as a career. He & his wife Janie warmly welcomed me with open arms into the world of photography, with a chair in his studio and an offer to be booked for his clients. 13 years later, our friendship and our careers have flourished! Who would have thought!

Along the last 13 years, I have held positions with retail makeup lines such as MAC Cosmetics & The Estee Lauder Companies. In addition to working hands on with cosmetic brands, I have also pursued individual certifications and classes to further my techniques knowledge and experience. I have had the love and support of my family and have met wonderful clients who have become friends, all of which continue to support the Makeup by Roxy dream. And, I've been lucky enough to have work along side of some of the nations leaders in the wedding, photography and makeup industries. At the end of the day, I can say that I truly love what I do. There is always room to grow, and I continue to push to further myself, and now my team, to our fullest potential.

Each and every day I wake up holds new and exciting makeup services, in new and exciting locations! Not to mention, walking into an amazing makeup studio with the ultimate dream team by my side.

I am a firm believer that what is meant to be, will be...and with the passion I hold for artistry - I ended up exactly where I need to be."
