What is your make-up motto?
I think it is the power of it all. With Make-up you can make women/men feel more confident; a character take over, express feelings and be whoever you want people to see, and that’s the beauty of it all. So my motto would be - Make-up is an illusion that makes all beautiful, at least for a moment.
