She continues to search for the latest technology and skin care so that her clients benefit from her knowledge and expertise. She utilizes the human form as a canvas.  Desiree’s inspiration for makeup design is based on the philosophy that “a woman’s beauty is similar to that of a flower – each flower though different possesses its’ own unique beauty.”
