She is my friend, my rock and beyond everything else, my inspiration.

15 MINUTE RED CARPET LOOK

I have had the good fortune of working with incredible makeup artists and learning tricks from them by simply observing them. Often, I have places to go to where I don’t have the luxury of spending 2 hours getting ready for hair and makeup. Since I was a teenager, I enjoyed doing my own makeup!

But for the rest of the things, I have constantly been playing around with different styles and this is how far I have gotten.
