From the first look, her skin is smooth and flawless. Her sense of style is amazing. She seems as though she was born to make others beautiful. In the middle of a photo-shoot, she gave me 30 minutes of her time.

Your beautician ambition journey?

I would like to have my own spa where you can get a full make over done while maintaining that natural beauty. I would also want to have my own healthy brand of beauty products. My university life was good, having had to balance the two. I got a lot of clients and experience from school helped me to manage my business better.

What drove you to it?

I loved doing my own make up and doing it naturally so I wanted to give the same to people like me who like a subtle look.

Are you dating?

Hehe, I am not answering the dating part.

Who inspires you?

My greatest inspiration comes from my mum and family for the incredible support they give me. It is immense and I wouldn’t be here without them. Makeup by Rose who is a friend and a mentor. Also Kangai of Bellesafrica who is a great teacher, mentor and friend too. Evelyne Odongo, you are an inspirational lady.
