My introduction to makeup and skincare was at a very young age, I was very fascinated with how my mother would cleanse and apply her face creams daily, I watched very closely when my mother would apply her strip lashes and liquid liner so precisely. This was her morning routine and I could barely see above the counter to watch her, she would say to me ”If you’re a good girl, I will give you some makeup.” That was music to my ears, and I was such a good girl!!!
My mother was my inspiration that lead me to a career as a makeup artist and hair stylist…
I was always into the arts. I painted, sketched, danced, and sang. I got a scholarship for voice and realized college wasn’t for me. Through my choral ensemble at college, I met a someone who worked part time for a cosmetic company in a department store. She knew that I was passionate about makeup and told me about an opening in her store. I got the job and ended up working with many different skin tones and faces of all ages and color. It was the best training. I had no patience for school, I just wanted to do and work, this was the beginning of an amazing career in the beauty industry.
I used to use all kinds of skincare and makeup, I had to try everything!! Until one day about 6 years ago I was diagnosed with an immune disorder that was labeled “incurable.” I just thought it would go away after I went to my doctor. Unfortunately, it didn’t go away… I took myself to urgent care twice in the middle of the night, went to doctors and specialist, was on many different types of medication and nothing was working. I was not functioning and was in constant pain. As a mother of 4 little children, this was just not acceptable, mommies cant be sick!!! So I went to one last specialist. My husband kept telling me that I am not going to find a pill that will cure me and when I am willing to do the healing work he is there for me… so he was right and this last doctor told me to look into nutrition. When I heard that, I called my husband crying… and told him that I was willing to do the work now.
My husband, who is a holistic healer literally saved me. For the first week I could only eat 10 things. I had to get rid of all my skincare, cosmetics, toothpaste, all my toiletries were tested by him and discarded. My husband tested everything I used and I could only use products that were clean and non-toxic in order to fully recover. So my search for new skincare started. I discovered and researched ingredients, I spoke to many skincare specialists and researched for hours online. When I finally found beautiful plant based products, I discovered an incredible difference in my skin immediately. My skin felt smoother and looked more radiant than ever.
