Makeup and Skin Care Expertise

Terryn began her love affair with makeup at the tender age of six after receiving her first set of play cosmetics for her birthday. She always knew she wanted to have a career in the beauty industry that would allow her to experiment with makeup. In her junior year of high school, she started her much-anticipated journey to receive her education in cosmetology. She was able to gain hands-on experience with contouring faces, how to arch the perfect eyebrow, and which colors are flattering on different skin tones. Terryn also received training on giving facials, microdermabrasion, and extractions.
