The Art of Beautifying

Upon graduation, she started applying the knowledge and skills acquired to serve clients during her spare time on weekends. As time passed, her growing portfolio and word of mouth attracted more clientele and garnered a significant following. Without much hesitation, she finally made the decision to quit her job and become a professional makeup artist. And the rest as they say is history.

Contrary to popular belief, a career as a makeup artist is not as easy as it seems. The hardships and challenges we faced have never been told or known by the general public. Early mornings, long working hours and dealing with difficult customers are all part and parcel of the job. That said, a career as a makeup artist can be rewarding as well. Seeing the beautiful smiling faces of clients, receiving gracious compliments and knowing that you had done a wonderful job are the premiums that hardly any other job could offer.

We believe in providing the best value to the customer. Customers are the lifeline of this business and their satisfaction is our measurable.

“Without customers, you don’t have a business. You merely have a hobby.” – Don Peppers & Martha Rogers
