I credit having two older sisters with my falling in love with EVERYTHING BEAUTY. Watching two fashionistas while growing up turned out to be a seduction of my interests. I was quite the tomboy until 8th grade  then it began. As a teen, I began to devour every beauty editorial in all of the top fashion magazines: Vogue©, Elle©, Essence©, Cosmopolitan©, Harpers Bazaar© and Seventeen. I could not get enough. I was ever-willing to spend my last $10 on an eyebrow pencil and two fashion rags. I would spend hours at the nearest store to browse the make-up lines and become familiar with every tool there was. I learned to sew at a very young age (Mommy made sure), so this was the time I started designing and sewing my own outfits to wear to school. So of course I had to have nails and eye shadow to match. If my blouse had black and white stripes or a checkered pattern, then so did my nails and eyes. Eventually becoming a NAIL TECHNICIAN & MAKE-UP ARTIST was a natural progression.

Formspring Q: Im an inspiring Make-up Artist in its very early stage. I have read all of your tips on getting started but there is one thing that is stopping me from pursuing my dream; fear of rejection. Can you tell me the best way to overcome my fear of failure?

My answer:

I have only one answer for how to overcome fear...push beyond it. You have to experience how it feels to achieve a goal & the feeling of rejection as well. The experience itself will teach you how to manage them in the future - as well as sparking your drive to succeed!

Feeling afraid is fine, you just have to decide to deal with it and BE CONFIDENT that it is as much a part of life as everything else. So GET OUT THERE!!! Hope this helps!
