“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart…”
My journey as a hair stylist and makeup artist started before I did. When God created me, He placed inside of me a passion and eye for creating art and beauty. As a child I remember being drawn to music, art, color, Barbie dolls, makeup, etc. I loved to sing, draw, and play dress up! I remember taking JCPenney’s catalogs and sitting for hours coloring in makeup on the female models because I thought, “they could use a little more lipstick and bigger eyelashes!”
I was always involved in music and art programs from elementary school up until high school. I found my joy in creating and that passion followed me into adulthood. I will never forget my dad instilling in my sister and me at an early age to be entrepreneurs, to find our passion, pursue it, and go into business. It wasn’t until 2008, when I moved to Warner Robins, GA with my family, that I decided to pursue cosmetology.
I loved my time in cosmetology school and after receiving my Master Cosmetologist license in 2010, I started to realize that the beauty industry was home to me. No other job I had ever worked gave me the joy and satisfaction that I received from helping women feel good about themselves. I poured myself into learning all I could learn about skin care, makeup, and hair. Makeup is really what ignited a fire inside of me like no other! All I learned in school were the basics, so I did my own exploration and taught myself.
In October 2013 I started Intensify by Patience, thanks to a lot of support and encouragement from friends and family, most importantly my younger sister Amber. Following the entrepreneurial spirit my dad instilled in us, Amber is an incredibly gifted, self-taught photographer! Check out her website www.amberphinisee.com
