I don't remember when I started wearing makeup but I do still own the first lipstick I ever had. It's too old to use now and a terrible shade of orange-red for my skin tone, but I can't throw it away. It's a reminder of a time when I crossed over from being a child to becoming self aware about the way I looked and dressed. Slowly through experience I found the things that looked right on me. People would eventually compliment the way I did my eye liner more than anything else. Then friends would ask me to do their hair and makeup and even my little sister eventually came to love getting a makeover by me. I would take photos of my friends and myself all the time, having newly discovered the power that beauty can have over many things and how it can build one's self esteem. 

Those days haven't ended but many of my friends learned how to do their own makeup and hair. I still have many friends who ask me to pluck their brows, do their Halloween face paint - another passion of mine - and give my boyfriend tips on what not to wear. I am an artist, an illustrator, an animator, but before I ever became good at drawing, I learned how to make my own face into a canvas. I have a good eye for what looks good on what face shape, colors that bring out other colors, and so on, much of it thanks to my schooling focused on arts. I would love to help give advice, learn more myself about how to improve a face, better one's self  and let clients push worries aside that they don't look good today to live life confidently. To see that genuine smile that someone has discovered something right for them, looking in the mirror and thinking "That's it, that's the one."

Customer Service
I've learned the importance of customer service through the eyes of several different companies and restaurants. Each place has taught me its own definitions of it through time. Clients are the whole reason a company becomes as successful as they do. Just as a musician makes music for their fans, a company sells products to their customers and the employees job is to make sure they get the product right for them and leave happy, surely to return for more.
