Stephanie Debes is a makeup artist born and raised in Staten Island, NY.  Her love of makeup began at a young age, as she was inspired by makeup artist Kandee Johnson, and her passion for helping her clients feel beautiful as well as other artists who face similar challenges to her own. She began practicing makeup on her family members, experimenting with different color combinations and utilizing her own techniques. In 2015, Stephanie enrolled at the Make-up Designory in New York where she focused on beauty makeup for fashion and special events. Now that she is pursuing her dreams, she is determined to be the best makeup artist she can be!

"I was born with a disability called Cerebral Palsy and Spastic Quadriplegia. I use a motorized wheelchair to get around. I refuse to let my disability stop me from turning my dreams into my reality! My life is faced with many obstacles, but I make the best of what I’ve got every day. I love the person I've become and I am blessed with a beautiful life. The only thing that matters to me is my happiness and making others happy too! I invite you to come along with me on my journey and thank you so much for following!"

“She believed she could, so she did.”
