“As little girls, we know we are beautiful. We just feel it.
Mirrors are places where we smile and twirl and sparkle.
But somewhere along the way, that smile becomes a little frown and a critical eye.
We turn to make-up and we conceal, we mask, we distract. As if beauty is only an illusion. A bag of tricks. Something we conjure, not something we feel.
My name is Lina. I’m a makeup artist.
I see your beautiful self and I’ll show you make-up that simply reveals it.”
