colours by ray Hi there beauty lovers, my name is Vwarhe, but for those of you trying to figure out how to pronounce it I’ll make it easier.. It’s pronounced “Y-Ray”, yes I said it Y-Ray!! But everyone calls me Ray. My background (Career wise) is somewhat different from the path that I seem to have found myself on, I mean, with a bachelors and Masters degree in Civil engineering, one would think that I would be in a construction company, designing buildings and complex structures, but here I am combining business development and Makeup artistry.

However, if you look at it from my point of view, Makeup artistry is a form of design. From selecting the right foundation to the perfectly arched brows, etc… one would say it’s construction all in itself.

My dad said to me a while back that having a formal education is no guarantee that you would find yourself in that field, the education tends to be a stepping stone to get you closer to knowing what you really want to do with your life. So in that quest to find my passion, I decided to learn the art of makeup (we all know the joy the beauty transformation can bring), and I don’t think from that point on I have stopped learning and working hard to become a better MUA (Make Up Artist).  It has been four years since then and not once have I thought of handing in my brushes.

With this passion and countless hours watching other MUA’s on YouTube, I decided to start my own channel, creating looks and sharing with other makeup enthusiast. It has been amazing sharing what I know and also learning for a community that is strongly bonded by this passion and compulsive desire to get their hands on every product out there (lol).

I hope you join me on this journey, let’s learn, share tips and tricks and explore this wonderful world of beauty.
