meet hannah

Hannah's love for makeup was sparked by a magical moment on the bathroom floor, watching her mom apply eyeshadow. In 7th grade, she asked her mom to put on her makeup every day until her mom finally said, "Dolly, you're going to need to learn this on your own." And so she did.

Over the years, Hannah has experienced failures, but with each setback, she grew stronger and more committed to her career. Now, she sees beauty in the process, rather than focusing on some pivotal mark or destination.

For Hannah, it's all about maintaining a joyful perspective and helping others achieve their vision of beauty.
