Life in Kuwait!
Tons of people that are new to my channel have been asking me, what the heck are you doing in Kuwait?! I thought it would be great to re-introduce the newbies to why I am here and what I do!
So many of you know when I started doing YouTube videos I had just began to explore makeup professionally, I had been living in Hawaii and was working for MAC Cosmetics. Shortly after I moved back to Los Angeles, I began freelancing as a makeup artist on my own and continued my duty as a US Army Reservist. And then a friend of mine got a job here in Kuwait and I sent in my resume and got the job! The company I work for is an American aviation company and we work WITH the US military. That’s all that needs to be said about what I do, no disclosing the company name or my salary, so please do not ask!
