"Before my enthusiasm with makeup began, I was merely an observant. I would watch my mom get her makeup done until eventually, I would get my turn on the chair. Not knowing much at a young age, I watched artists put on the wrong shade of foundation on me - something that was a lot lighter. And it was really through the series of hits and misses that I wanted to learn to do it on myself. No matter how beautiful the makeup was, I'd feel uncomfortable staring at someone that wasn’t really me. It would be too pale but at that time, being fair was more beautiful than being tan. Fast forward to ten years later, although I am now good at putting my own makeup, when the time comes that I need a makeup artist, I always tell them 'I go for the bronze look.' Besides hoarding makeup, I love seeing people happy in their skin. Seeing people unapologetically happy. I love that. I love the innocence in it and I wish that on everyone."
