Born in New York, Yara considers herself a citizen of the East Coast having moved a number of times along the northeastern seaboard until her family eventually settled in Maryland. Always a creative with a deep thirst for knowledge, she taught herself makeup artistry, turning her passion for art and beauty into a career as a published makeup artist, finding purpose on editorial sets and making brides feel their best for their wedding. After a time, she went on to graduate top of her class from the Aveda Institute and entered the world of aesthetics, helping both women and men feel celebrated and comfortable in their skin all around DC, Maryland and Virginia.

She’s now turned her energy in a new direction of service in helping individuals buy and sell their homes. In her free time, she enjoys reading, keeping active in any way possible (current obsession with Pilates) and baking up a storm for friends and family.
