Casandra is just as friendly as she is talented. I've had the pleasure of working with her quite a few times already, each project she brings a new and different look to the table. From Indian bridal to winter queen to disco diva, I know Cass can pull off any look she sets her mind to. It's rare to find an artist talented in both domains whether that be makeup or hair. She's a positive, determined and light-hearted individual. I highly suggest booking her for any of your makeup related needs! She's got your back!
