Beauty is only skin deep – true, but… by bringing it to the surface we are free to explore it, fill it with charm, adventure and character. Make-up is not only color, texture and cover, it is a tool of action which enables us to capture beauty from within…Allow me to seize what the imagination can see as beauty with the power of make-up.
“As an Educator/Artist, sharing my knowledge and making people look and feel their best is my biggest achievement thus far.. When I started, I didn’t have a role model or mentor in the beauty field to look up to and help me. All I knew, was that I loved it. But even after going to school, I felt as if I was in an industry with very little real-life knowledge. Schools were very “by the book”, teaching basic techniques which didn’t hold up in the real world. I was thirsty for more. Everything I learned, I had to learn on my own, through experience. After years of experience and practice I am finally where I always dreamt I would be, but it doesn’t have to be this hard for others.
That’s why I always shared my experiences and knowledge openly, with the goal of helping the struggling artists achieve their lifelong dreams as I did. I want to give more power to women and men to follow their dream by providing REAL quality education and products, to nurturing my students and spreading knowledge, inspiration, hope, and beauty… But most of all, to promoting togetherness. Why be lonely when there’s plenty of room at the top? ”
