I am a 23 year old pre-med student and licensed esthetician, who loves all things beauty. I started off by watching my beautiful mother Billie Branch, CEO of Branch International, do her makeup. Even though I was never really allowed to wear the good stuff yet, I had my mascara and gloss. As I grew older, I became apart of cheerleading and 2 dance teams. Looking good for games, and having stage makeup became apart of my life. I started off small with the help of my mother, using my Ruby Woo lipstick from MAC cosmetics. Next I learned to put on false lashes. I got glue everywhere! My lashes would never stick, glue got in my eye, I poked myself in the eye, I never gave up though. From there I dove into youtube videos. I started learning from AlyssaForever, Alissa Ashley, and Symphani Soto. Which products to use, and what not to use. There was a lot of trial and error involved, A LOT. But here I am today with a full on business because a simple hobby turned into a passion.
Find your passion. What makes you hungry? What make makes you want to succeed? once you figure that out, NEVER give up. The harder the challenges are, the closer you are to making an impact. You were born for a reason, God gave you a gift, use it. Be fierce when doing it.
I first want to honor God for creating me and placing me here on this beautiful earth to inflict change worldwide. Without you I would not be here. Everyday alive is a blessing I never take for granted. I gave You all the thanks, praise, honor and glory.
I next want to thank my radient, elegant, the fiercest woman on this earth my mother Billie Branch. I would not be who I am without you. You have taught me so much about what it means to not only be a woman, but a proud woman of color. Without you I would not be the focused and multi-talented young woman I am today. You inspire me everyday with your strength, humility, and truth. Never forget how much I appreciate you and never forget I am always your pumpernickel. I love you.
Lastly, I want to thank my Dad Tim Craig. You have shown me what it is like to have a man love you. To have a bond that cannot be broken. To feel safe, protected, and to have someone who will take your side even when you are wrong (which is never by the way). I am glad you are in my life, and I and I am forever thankful.
