What would you say were some of the unique experiences that you were able to take from your initial work experiences?
The friendships I have formed along with the comradery of other makeup artists. We are a close-knit group.
What brought you to Charleston?
My sister brought me to Myrtle Beach, which led to a visit to Charleston, and I quickly fell in love with the city.
How did you come up with the idea of your own product line?
Friends pushed me into the idea. Then I was like, OK, let’s try it out. We just turned 9 years old.
Was it difficult to get off the ground?
Luckily for me, it wasn’t that difficult to lift off; the difficult part is keeping it relevant.

What do you enjoy most about what you do?
Bringing out the inherent beauty of all people.
