It's amazing how naive childhood is. You tend to follow your true passion without realizing what it meant to you back then. My early memories take me back to watching TV or going through a magazine, where my sole focus was on someone’s face, trying to understand what kind of makeup they were wearing, their face-shape, choice of lip-color, and most importantly their "eye-liner". I would always get lost in face maps.
While other kids were focusing on home-work, I was sitting in front of a mirror trying to convert a glossy lipstick into a matte, either by applying a foundation or some loose powder secretly “borrowed” from my mother’s vanity. She never wore any makeup except face powder and lipstick.
My Sunday memories take me to my siblings playing outside while I’m sitting in front of a mirror trying on a new look that I kept envisioning over and over in my head.
I never pursued my passion until a life-threatening accident changed my life and I realized that life is too short. I quit my Accounting job the very next day and took up makeup and hair as my full-time career. I feel very fulfilled deep inside and know that I made the right decision.
I still look at fashion magazines and beautiful pictures. I wake up in the morning excited to try new looks. My clients include brides, corporate events, fashion shows, and photoshoots. I am very thorough and ask a lot of pertinent questions, creating face maps to achieve the perfect look. I don’t consider the most advertised products to be the best. I first test them on myself for at-least 10 hours to experience the results. I want my clients’ makeup to remain unchanged for 10 hrs. I’m very passionate about women and I firmly believe that a woman who feels confident inside as well as outside can move mountains…
