Ep1: So this is what it is

I wanted you to get to know me a little bit more before we get into all the amazing guests we have lined up. When I first got into beauty - I didn't really realize the world I was entering. With the intention of uplifting the confidence of my clients - I launched a video on youtube called "Are your lips too big" - 7+million views later - it really showed me that makeup was not all about the application.
