With over 11 years of experience in the makeup industry and a childhood spent in several family-owned salons, professional makeup artist and esthetician Tonya Gabriel has a passion for making everyone feel stunning in the skin they are in.
Hey Tonya, tell me a little about yourself and how you got into the world of aesthetics! I've been licensed for 11 years!
I decided to go to esthetics school to learn more in that field and to have my license made official.
Besides makeup, does the Beauty Mark Lounge provide any other services to clients?
Why do you love this industry, and what makes you so passionate about it that you decided to make this your career?
I love this industry because there will always be a need for it. I love to be creative, and this field allows me to be myself and create a safe space for my clients. I love being in a role where I can help people feel confident by bringing out their beauty!
