As a beauty expert Birgitte works as a spokesperson, consultant, and on-camera expert with many of the top national beauty brands, magazines and television shows. Considered an inspiration to many who feel beauty and self-confidence is unattainable, Birgitte has become a writer, speaker and on-camera personality with an expertise and passion for making high-end fashion and beauty products more accessible and relatable to the masses.     

Some of the ways that she makes beauty more accessible is through her in-person make-up lessons, as well as her beauty lectures. Birgitte is also a frequent contributor to many national women's magazines including Good House-keeping, O, Women's Day and Ladies Home Journal, among others giving make-overs, makeup lessons and beauty advice to readers.

Birgitte’s passion for helping others look and feel more beautiful led her to becoming the founder of TRANS BEAUTY CLINIC on October, 2015. The mission of TRANS BEAUTY CLINIC is to help the transgender community empower themselves through hair, makeup and grooming.

This is accomplished with volunteer beauty experts who run workshops/clinics at local community centers, shelters, churches etc as well as on the TRANS BEAUTY CLINIC website:

Some of our sponsors for our events have been Alcone, Hourglass Cosmetics, Milani Makeup and Hot Tools among others.

Her message? “No matter how far outside society a woman may feel, she has the right to celebrate herself and feel beautiful.”
