When I was younger, I was often called “Freckle Face” as an insult. I learned to hate my freckles and tried to cover them with makeup through all of junior high and most of high school. By the time I got to college, I stopped covering my freckles and embraced them as a part of me that made me unique. I come to my clients with an individualistic approach and by no means have a one-size-fits-all makeup technique. I would love to make your unique features stand out and celebrate your diversity. <3 Aleya Garcia
