Very early in my career, a client once asked me to make her look like anyone but herself.
I did just that.
When I stood back I was so ashamed of the makeup.
She loved it and wanted to buy everything.
To her dismay, I asked her if I may re-apply her makeup.
She didn’t understand but was happy to oblige my request.
That was the day I figured out what makeup means to me: To honor and celebrate each face, not hide and disfigure it.
Thus was born my path to Face with a Heart Authentic Beauty Makeup.
Honor and celebrate who you are. It has changed my relationship with everyone forever.
If I could crawl through the computer screen and do your makeup I would. Since this technology does not yet exist, I come as close as I can with all the features that this virtual internet universe provides.
Thank you for visiting me. I so look forward to meeting you.
