Vicky Phanthasone's love for makeup started at a very young age. Not ever thinking it could be anything more than just a hobby, she left her home in Anchorage, AK to venture off to NYC. There she obtained her BA in Media Studies at CUNY Queens College. While studying Film/TV/Production, makeup continued to have some form of roll in each of her projects.
On her spare time she would sit in front of a mirror and try to learn and perfect different looks that were trending. Perfecting looks on herself led to perfecting looks on her friends, then to friends of friends, and so on. Eventually leading to paid gigs.
Learning mainly through trial and error, Vicky felt it was time to learn from the professionals. She has taken courses through GlamLab Studios and ChicStudios in NYC and is continually educating herself to stay up to date in the everchanging industry.
What Vicky loves most about makeup is that it not only can transform a persons appearance but it can also enhance their natural features and beauty. As she always says, "Beauty is in the eye of the brushholder."
Vicky is currently based in New York City but travels to New Jersey and Connecticut.
