“Makeup is anything you want it to be it can create fantasy and it could make you feel a certain pizazz. My take on beauty is truly feeling good about yourself from inside and out, I am obsessed with French women and their take on beauty it is effortless, feel good, sexy and mysterious celebrating the perfectly imperfect flaws and embracing it. Confidence makes you glow!”- Vina Gisella
