Where does your passion for makeup comes from?

I think from my first "makeup applications" [the way to say coloring ;-)] on the cover girl magazines when I was 8 or 9 years old. You know, applying red lip stick with my schools pencils. I always loved drawing and modeling also with plasticine. I also played some amateur theatre when I was teenager and we used to wear some mustaches or draw some eyebrows to create some characters. I suppose all that confirmed later my passion for makeup. For me, doing professional makeup is having fun.
