HOW LONG WORKING WITH MAKE UP FOR EVER?
Lijha joined MAKE UP FOR EVER in 2010, working first at the MAKE UP FOR EVER Boutiques in Los Angeles and Las Vegas as Head Makeup Artist, and most recently as the company’s Pro & Media Educator. Lijha is responsible for driving educational programs and seminars in the Pro community, as well as serving as spokesperson for MAKE UP FOR EVER on QVC and other media forums.
WHERE DID YOUR PASSION FOR MAKEUP COME FROM?
Lijha has worked in the industry for the past 8 years; however, her passion for makeup became clear at a very early age. When Lijha was 12 years old she recalls receiving Kevyn Aucoin’s “Making Faces” and flipping through the 200 color photos to learn about makeup fundamentals. Lijha was immediately hooked and knew even then that she wanted to spend her life changing the way people look and feel through makeup.
