Artist of the day : Ogechi of Beatbygee

I had the honor of having my makeup done by the talented Ogechi of Beatbygee. I believe makeup is under the umbrella of visual arts, it takes artistic talent to enhance someones beauty not hinder it. On that note meet Ogechi :

Introduce yourself : 

My name is Oge Okonkwo. I am currently a senior studying Public Health with a concentration in community health at Montclair State University. Post graduation I plan on getting my masters in Public Health. Aside from being a full time student, I am also a makeup artist. Hopefully after graduation, I will also get my beauty license as well. 

When did you start makeup:

I started makeup in 2015.  It all started from practicing on friends at our leisure time. And here I am today running a mini makeup business.

Do you consider it a hobby or career? :
I consider makeup a hobby but not a career. This hobby has turned into my personal brand. 

what inspires you to keep striving and perfecting your skills? :

The dreams of growing my brand definitely inspire me to strive and improve my skills. The reactions I get after rendering services to clients encourage me to improve my skills. The joy I get from making a beautiful woman feel more beautiful than she already is, is everything to me. A happy and satisfied client has always been the goal. I must also say it's a totally different feeling when you work for yourself especially when doing something you love. This is also one of the reasons why I love to consider makeup my hobby and not a career.
