“The only way to do great work is to love what you do.” – Steve Jobs
First off, thank you for visiting my site! My name is Adriana Storto and I am a freelance makeup artist and hair stylist as well as a Sephora-addict, TV binge-watcher, perfectionist, mama to an energetic little boy, wife, dog mom, and wannabe Disney princess. For the past 7 years I have been a successful Event Sales Manager working at entertainment complexes, hotels and private social clubs but I have put that aside to follow my true passion of making girls and women feel beautiful in their own skin.
I was first introduced to makeup while performing on-stage in various theatre companies as a child. Stage makeup (and having it stay intact throughout a performance) is an art of itself and, as I grew older, learned how to apply makeup specific for stage and camera lighting. In high school I assisted with makeup application for the actors in our school productions. From there I fell in love with using these acquired techniques in event makeup application.
After being self-taught for 11 years, in 2016 I decided to attend formal makeup artistry training at the Dash Beauty Academy and haven’t looked back since. With hair and makeup going hand-in-hand in the beauty industry, in early 2018 I attended technical and practical hair design training and am happy to be able to offer my clients both services.
While I have a strong passion for this industry I think I would say I have a stronger passion for making people feeling confident. Because being able to love yourself inside and out truly is a beautiful thing.
I can’t wait to work with you soon!
