Show Your Shine!
Hi, I’m Brenda and I think make-up is about accentuating your beauty. I strongly believe the art of makeup is not about covering your face with colors or hiding behind a mask, but it is about using techniques to highlight your natural beauty. Everyone is beautiful and it is just a matter of showcasing that natural beauty. From my own personal experience, I know that presenting your natural beauty empowers you to be bold, beautiful, sensual, self-confident, and ready to take on the world! I pledge to all of my clients that they will receive a personalized touch to bring out the true beauty inside. As the old adage says, “When you look good, you feel good.”
After a successful 30-year career as a military nurse and officer, I am embarking on another journey of growth to fully evolve and walk on the path God has set for me.
I was born in Barbados and migrated with my family to New York City at twelve years of age. Later receiving my nursing degree at Hunter College, I enrolled in the United States Air Force for a chance to explore the world. It was an excellent ride with ups and downs, but this summer marks the end of this journey and the start of my next adventure.
The idea for KQBawi began in 2000. While stationed in Florida, I worked with battered women and underprivileged girls. I taught these young ladies how to rebuild their self-esteem utilizing makeup to make themselves feel and look great. It was so rewarding to witness these ladies’ attitudes and confidence transform exponentially just by applying a minimal amount of cosmetics to enhance their natural beauty.
Throughout my military career, I was blessed with many opportunities to educate men and women on skincare and the benefits of applying cosmetics to nurture, protect, and enhance their shine. It was my outlet from the rigors of a demanding military life.
Now, I step into my second half as a Certified International Makeup Artist and Beauty Educator. I look forward to blending my military experience and vast knowledge of skincare and cosmetics to showcase my clients' natural radiance so they may present their "best" for any opportunity or occasion. I will also continue to contribute my services and a percentage of my profits to charity.
