My Self-Reflection On Makeup Your Soul

| |

Being an entrepreneur is not as easy as it may seem. When I started my Beauty Business in this industry, I wanted to really capture the essence of being an independent woman. I wanted to be able to generate enough wealth to allow me the privilege of pursuing my own goals instead of aiding someone else in pursuing theirs. I’ve always had a strong personality and I wanted this to come through with my worth ethics. The best part about … Read More

A Lesson In Vulnerability And Authenticity

It’s been a long busy Summer in the beauty industry. I enjoy taking out some time to do some collaboration work with younger artists and also teach the up and coming stars as well. I’ve been called “Sensei” by a few of my apprentice artists and friends on more than one occasion actually. To be honest, I’ve been incredibly honoured to be called as such. Sensei is a Japanese word for “teacher” or guide, mentor. It’s a very honorable title … Read More
