29 Nov MAKEUP ARTIST SPOTLIGHT:BIBET PAPA
How did you start?
With a pot of Bobbi Brown Gel Liner!!! Bought this item from a bazaar, and it got me hooked on doing the winged eye. Happy that my officemates allowed me to practice on them. I was a banker for 11 years until I realized I wanted to pursue my passion for makeup artistry. Went to school in Center for Aesthetic Studies (CAS) and worked for MAC as guest MUA for almost a month. Now, I’m doing freelance makeup, usually for events.
Where do you buy your makeup?
From my travels. I also ask relatives and friends to grab stuff for me when they’re abroad. Websites and online shops are also options – Beautylish.com and Sephora.
