Ever since I was young I was infatuated with makeup. My mother never wore any which only grew my curiosity. Once I found Youtube Makeup tutorials I was hooked for life!

I did that SO many times! I kept telling myself I was going to get a mirror that would allow me to look closer at myself before I leaving the house.
I knew I would be attending a few events whilst traveling to New York City. I wanted to make sure my makeup was on point for photos opportunities and to impress several of the companies I would be meeting with.
