What is your approach to your business or occupation that makes you unique?
I specialize in photography, bridal, special occasions, parties, updos, and makeup in salon or out of salon. Or, I will even do a ladies night out with your friends. I can customize your makeup using motives cosmetics(in a powder or liquid form) as well as my own blushes, bronzers, and eyeshadows! I love to use beautiful bold colors and my eyeshadows have already created a buzz. At my salon, I also specialize in hair color , cutting, waxing eyelashes, extensions, and facials.
I also hold makeup classes a couple of times a month for anyone wanting to learn a little more than the basics of makeup! The classes are for putting a little more glamour in your life, for professional woman, or just for fun. Classes are hands on because I learned by doing and so can you! As the year moves along will be making handmade skincare products.
