On1 Exclusive: 

You became a popular sensation overnight, did you ever think that being a professional makeup artist would have gotten you so far?
I always had a wonderful group of followers from Facebook, twitter or Instagram. They seem to always love everything that I had done, I would get a lot of praise, compliments, respects etc. and I'm really grateful for that. I always knew that being a makeup-artist would do me well but I didn't expect that it is constantly growing and I'm getting more recognition and from that I get instant motivation.
   
How do you feel about the amount of fans who constantly message you about doing their makeup professionally?
To this day, I still feel in awe. Because, I am a very humble person and for my fans to ask me to do their makeup is like an honor to me. Allowing me to do their makeup is not just doing makeup, it's also allowing me to build a relationship with my fans.

My aspect of doing makeup, I don't transform their face, I simply enhance their God given face. I want them to feel confidence and comfortable with the makeup.

M.A.C beauty products or Clinique?
Well I am a big fan of M.A.C, most of my products are from M.A.C, and however Clinque are also a favorite to me as well. I would recommend M.A.C at the end of the day.
