AMW - What made you decide to go on and pursue a make-up career?  How old were you then?  
Stephen - I was always an artist from the time I was 5. I fell into makeup though when I decided not to go to art school cause I didn’t want to be a “starving artist”.
My friend was a local fashion designer and needed help with his shows. After a few months of helping him and the makeup artist. Someone said “Your really great at makeup! Thats when the lightbulb went off and I knew what my destiny was! and how I was “Not” going to be a starving artist!

AMW - I know you came up with your own brand of lashes called SmokAndMirrors Beauty,  can you tell us what is the difference of your lashes as compared to other brands available in the market?
Stephen - Mine are custom lashes I designed for my clients now available to the public. The lashes are the highest quality human hair and the band is light weight and silicone do it is much more comfortable and flexible.
