Heidi’s career in cosmetics began by joining the beauty team of, at the time, the new and upcoming brand, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. After freelancing with BB she ultimately took a full time position with them at Saks Fifth Ave, which progressed into a position as a personal cosmetic liaison with Saks's preferred clientele. Her experience there, working with women of all ages, ethnicities, and preferences, she has said, was “the best training she could have ever had in knowing how to personalize a look for her clients”. After a decade of service she left to nurture her entrepreneurial spirit, which led to the creation of the luxury beauty agency, Damali New York, specializes in Bridal and Mobile beauty services. Highly sought after by brides and a favorite among socialites and fashionistas, Heidi continues to provide services for her private, corporate and bridal clientele while striving to direct Damali NYC to new heights.
