We had the good fortune of connecting with Kennedy Hendricks and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kennedy, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
Growing up being bullied in middle school for my height, my weight and even my looks really caused me to look at myself in a negative light. Always feeling that I was never enough or even never pretty enough. Makeup became an outlet for me to express myself, my creativity and my true feelings. It boosted my confidence to another level. Makeup helped me learn to love myself inside and out for who I am and who God created me to be.The passion behind makeup grew so much bigger within me I wanted to share with others weather it be through social media, clients, customers I encountered while working for ulta beauty I wanted women and girls to know that no matter what people say we are all beautiful with and without makeup.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am a 22 year old MUA Located in the Ga area, I love creating more fun and vibrant looks to promote my brand.I am proud of myself honestly for not giving up it has been numerous times that I wanted to throw In the towel because I did not feel great enough as an artist and always comparing myself to other artist in the makeup industry listen to others opinions that did not even matter but wIth hard word, dedication and believing in myself I am blessed to be where I am today. In this journey I have learned that you can’t take everyone with you, it takes Separation for elevation. Also People are going to support who they want to support in this world never lower your value for someone else who does not know their own value. When you take a seat In the Glam Lab everyone here is beautiful and wonderfully made.
