60-Second Interview

What inspired you to beauty and make up artistry?
I always had a natural eye for art, and loved experimenting artistic things on anyone and everyone. Throughout my school and college years, I constantly excelled in Art. I loved trying new trendy looks on friends and family, I enjoyed it so much and that's when I realised that beauty and make up artistry is what I want to do. I enjoy making people feel good about themselves. Enhancing their beauty makes me happy from within.
Who was your biggest hero when you were young?
Well... I can say that I loved many stars and actors and saw them as my heroes!
But my true hero has got to be my mother, watching her work hard has made me the person I am today.
Can you tell us about the first £10 you ever made?
I would be lying if I said I can't remember...
No one forgets their first £10! I remember saying I will never spend it... but like a true artist, I invested it towards new make up, tools and other gadgets :)
How do you define success?
Success cannot be planned. Success is something that comes from being true to what you do.
What has been the biggest challenge so far with your business
Being the 'new kids on the block' amongst an already well established hair, beauty and make up area.
What is it that keeps you going through tough times?
My confidence - we offer a unique experience to customers!
What is it that gets you out of bed in the mornings?
The desire to make people feel better about themselves
Where do you see your business in 5 years' time?
Flourishing - with experienced staff, generating more income and increased relationships with new and loyal customers!
If you could give your "teenage self" one piece of advice, what would it be?
To follow the career path which you enjoy and makes you feel happy... there's nothing worse than having no motivation or disliking your work.
