Loving makeup, educating myself in artistry, business and the beauty industry (3 trips to NYC, Miami, San Diego, and a move to LA in 2008)

Move to NYC (insert boyfriend/now husband) didn’t want to start all over again building clients that I spent 12+ months working on

 

2009

 January, coffee with an old friend (celebrity hairstylist/salon owner in NYC) offered to hire me as a freelance makeup artist, but said, very seriously and clearly ‘You don’t really want to do that, do you? Focus on what you DO want!’
