How did your career start in the make up and beauty world?
About a year ago, I had an acquaintance draw my eyebrows. They were perfect. I asked her to help me out for a class I was rushing too but she did not have my time, I simply asked her for her kit, sat in front of the mirror and did a replica of what she did. Thing is I know how to draw but I dint know it would pay off on makeup. I guess her lack of help that time that motivated me to do mine. From there it only got better. I started branching out to different segments.
