Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

There's enough pretty to go around and we can all be pretty!! We just need the right tools in our total belt. There's a large gap for me to bridge between education, ingredients and instruction for the masses and most women just need help & guidance.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I have witnessed many many lives changed by liberating women from numerous skin conditions and make up addiction. My favorite reaction is when women cry tears of joy after receiving their brows (angel wings) with permanent make up. There have been women that literally could not go to the grocery store or the mailbox or let their significant others see them without them painted it on.
