Noe’s love affair with makeup started when she was just a little kid, she used to play with her mother’s makeup bag and hair brushes and she’d spend an entire afternoon pretending to be a model while wearing her mom’s scarves and over sized shoes. That was the beginning of everything, during her high school days her passion for makeup continued to flourish all thanks to the many school plays she was part of. She realized then that applying makeup on herself or on other people made her feel good as it just came naturally for her. Her family saw it too and they encouraged her to practice and hone her skills. She used to just watch her makeup artist friends and asked them for techniques and then YouTube came along. It was because of YouTube that her love for makeup grew more. With a lot of hard work and patience she was able to develop a popular blog as well as her own channel in YouTube with thousands of subscribers from around the world. Every day she wakes up blessed to be where she is today, the future may be uncertain but rest assured her passion for makeup will never waver.
