“ I enhance faces with my signature ‘no-makeup makeup’ to achieve a gorgeous natural glow that pays

   tribute to individual beauty.”

 Born in London, I got my start as a makeup artist working with the era’s most influential fashion designers, photographers and magazines—from Vivienne Westwood to David Bailey to The Face.

It was a brilliant introduction to visionary creativity, exceptional teamwork and a strong work ethic that has served me in my collaborations with international luminaries on both sides of

the camera.

My other major influence has been a lifelong study of wellness modalities and traditional medicine, supporting the belief that true beauty is rooted in health. This was the foundation for Hirsh Skincare, the cult organic skincare line I created in the 90s, and for Perfumera Curandera, my new brand of luxurious natural handmade healing perfumes.

Based in New York and Woodstock, I continue to evolve my unique approach to beauty, offering clients an original viewpoint that is both natural and performance-driven, grounded and exalted, modern and eternal.

My life is dedicated to beauty through wellbeing, to cultivating the inner radiance that is revealed when we are nourished, centered and whole. For years, I have studied indigenous healing traditions and these inspire everything I do.
 
My holistic approach to makeup incorporates aromatherapeutic, botanically-based products that create a foundation of flawless, dewy skin. From there, I build luminosity and color. A philosophy of uncovering natural beauty continues to inform my work with the world’s best photographers, models, stylists and editors for the finest fashion, beauty and lifestyle resources.
