I've studied economics in my home country, Portugal, but 9 years ago I decided to follow my makeup dream in London. The dream I followed, gave me more in return that I would expect. No, I didn't became a world renowned makeup artist, however instead, throughout this journey I learned more about myself and the different passions I have in life, besides makeup.
