Where did your passion for makeup come from?

Gary was born into an artsy family; his father was a dance teacher and his mother a singer. When he was a little boy, he used to play backstage, watching his mother doing her makeup, as well as that of the other dancers and singers. He thought it was magical! Growing up, he passed on the chance to host a broadcasting  show and chose to be a makeup artist instead! He wanted to enjoy this kind of magic FOREVER!
