“I remember few years ago when a little niece of mine told my parents that she wanted to be a beauty artist, you would have seen the anger in them ‘Oooh gosh are you insane all your friends are surgeons and career people you’re here trying to be a beauty making toy. ‘
Little did they know people are able to fend for themselves even with their degrees in their houses they still opt to be independent and utilise their skills for survival. “
This is the case of a make up Artists Miss Cecilia who utilizes her skills for survival.
Who said at 23 you Can’t be what you want to be, let me introduce you to a 23 year old beauty make up artist Cecilia Magaleta. Born in a family of 4, a graduate from Luanar university of Malawi. Despite being a graduate she opted to use her skills to fend for herself. And she has been successful from the time since she verged into her personal skill as a career. She is top of the country for her good work.

And her customers needs are her number one priority. She always wants them to be happy with what she does so she takes her time.
Apart from make up some people come wanting more than just make up, so she also does specializes in different types of nails, Gel Polish , acrylic nails ,temperature gel nails , regular nails polish.
Who ever came up with the phrase that says “experience is the best teacher” knew what they meant. Over the years Cecilia has grown from better to Best, she has been in this makeup business for four years now. The way she used to do her work back then and now it’s far much different, now she is more advanced and good at what she does she believes in few years time she will be the big deal in town.

“I am my own role model, l always use this in my head that if not for me who is going to do it , l always put God in everything that l should be a better version of myself in business” Cecilia attested.
The quote that keeps this queen going is “Trust the lord with all your heart and learn not on your own understanding proverbs 3 vs 5,” she chases passion not fame cause make up is her passion.
