Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Mimi has always had a passion for the beauty industry, and was especially captivated by the ability to subtly enhance or completely transform a face. Beginning as a teenager, her first job at a hair salon allowed her inspiration for beauty to blossom. She recalls actively practicing on her friends and family from that point forward.
At the age of 18, Mimi gained valuable experience by working at some of the top salons in Atlanta including Van Michaels Salon and Dobel Salon and Spa, again continuing her passion to enhance and accentuate beauty. After a few years at salons, Mimi joined MAC cosmetics in 2007 as a makeup artist where she truly found her niche. She was with MAC until 2014. Mimi attended Paul Mitchell The School Atlanta in 2010, where she received her master cosmetology license in 2011.
Since then, new professional opportunities have opened up many doors including teaching a "tips and tricks" workshop for MAC, working as a makeup artist for Good Day Atlanta, BET Awards, assorted fashion shows, magazines, special events, and more. Mimi is well known for her dewy skin look. She especially prides herself on being able to blend, highlight, and sculpt the face to enhance the natural beauty of her clients.
Currently Mimi lives in Atlanta GA, but is bi-coastal to LA and Miami. Her work with celebrities such as Meghan Trainor, Cynthia Bailey, Jami Gertz and her years of experience in Bridal Makeup have served to establish and elevate her toward her aspirations of being a successful Makeup Artist. In April 2019 Mimi accepted a position as Lead Hair and Makeup Artist for Court TV Network and Katz Broadcasting in Atlanta.
