Tracey is well versed in many aspects of Makeup and Beauty. Her career really kicked into high speed at CBS in Los Angeles for Daytime TV with The Young and Restless, Bold and Beautiful and Price is Right before Hi Def Cameras were used. As a result, she was part of the movement which had to trail blaze and innovate new ways to achieve an on camera look. By finding different solutions and products to work with these new cameras, Tracey was able to establish herself as an expert. Designing the look of the commercial, film or TV characters whether present day or a specific time period really brings out the creative side in her. Achieving these makeup looks encompasses many hours of research, reading the script or storyboards, discussing ideas with the Creative Director/Director, as well as, collaborating with the actor all before finding and using just the right products and techniques necessary to achieve and sustain these looks for the several hours necessary to film. Tracey is passionate to bring characters to life. When an actor/personality such as Daniel Craig, Owen Wilson, Arnold Schwartzenegger, Hilary Swank, Jackee Harry or Ariana Huffington leaves her chair they have the confidence and trust their look is appropriate, and ready for their close up. When she is not on set, she is continuing to educate herself on the latest and greatest artistry techniques which hone her skill-set, and enjoying her favorite past time of looking for new beauty finds curated from all over the world.
