Interview With Kristine Rose (MUA, Esthetician & Writer)

As a service provider, I really just want to help you become your best self. I used to be obsessed with that What Not to Wear show, and there were a lot of great tips on it, but at the end of the episode everyone just sort of looked homogenous and like a very specific version of what style was supposed to be, and I don't so much love that. I think you can make any look work as long as you really commit. I don't just want to mold my clients into my specific vision, I really want to help them find themselves in a way that's authentic.

If that's genuinely how you want to look, go for it, but it's not gonna be what's comfortable for most people.

But the more experience I get, the more confidence I get, and that fearful voice is less and less loud.
