My name is Alisha Burks and I have been interested in makeup and hair my whole life! I love doing makeup and hair, I love that I can be creative, transform, and make people look amazing and feel great about themselves. I started really becoming involved in makeup when I was 13 yrs old and I was at the library and picked up this book called the art of makeup by keyvn Aucoin! I was amazed how talented and what a genius he was. I from there read and studied all 3 of his amazing books, and practiced my hair and makeup on my mom, sisters, cousins, and friends! As you can tell keyvn Aucoin is my favorite makeup artist, he was a complete genius and he was over the top amazing. I always dreamt about taking a class from him when he was alive, I wish I could of but I still have all those books to look back on. I'm inspired by life, the past, the present, architecture, culture, and nature. This is the only thing I will ever do! It's what I'm good at and it's what I love! And that's it!
