Q: How and why did you get into makeup?
A: Ive been artistic all my life; whether it was drawing, learning to play bass, making my own jewelry or graphic designing, the passion for music and art has always been there. I had always loved makeup but never really wore it cause I didnt know how to apply it correctly. Then one magical day when I was 15, I was taken to a MAC counter in Dillards and fell in love. I started playing with color and buying little by little any chance I got. Then I began watching YouTube videos when I was 17 and learned from there.

Q: What school did you go to to learn how to do makeup?
A: Nope, I didn't go to any school or academy; I am completely self taught and learned everything I know from my mother and YouTube.
