Q: Why do you want to become an esthetician?
I have a passion for makeup artistry and have always been a firm believer that we have to take care of our “canvas”. I feel that the knowledge I gain will enhance my artistry as well as provide me with knowledge I can share with clients that goes beyond a makeup application.
Q: What is it that drew you to Elise Esthetics compared to other schools?
I was originally drawn to Elise Esthetics through a graduate of the school. I had visited and researched other schools as well, but I felt that I would be more than a number at Elise Esthetics. The director and instructors are invested in their craft and the students.
Q: What are your goals within the esthetician world in the next 5 years?
Within the next five years I would like to start off by working in a spa or salon setting. Eventually I would like to have my own business specializing in makeup artistry.
Q: How has going to Elise Esthetics changed you or helped you in your career?
Elise Esthetics has helped me to become more confident and feel as though I am taking the steps toward what God has called me to do. Being surrounded by others who have similar passions is very encouraging. I feel that upon graduation I will be able to enter this field with a spirit of true confidence instead of fear.
Q: Who or what are your top 3 beauty influencers?
My top three “beauty influencers” are makeup artists and educators. Danessa Myricks, Mali Magic, and Romero Jennings. Each are excelling within the beauty industry as creators, artists, and educators and are always willing to share their knowledge with others.
Q: Best skincare advice?
My best advice would be to invest in a good face cleanser and moisturizer and to use them daily.
Q: What would you say to someone indecisive of going to Elise Esthetics?
If you have a passion for the field of Esthetics and you’re looking to grow and become a professional in the industry, Elise Esthetics will provide you with the tools you need to be successful. You will be exposed to hands on experience, instructors who still work in the industry, and an environment where you are valued. Pray about it, write down your goals, and take that next step toward becoming a professional. (Choose Elise Esthetics!)
