Steph is well traveled and loves adventure. Her love for cosmetics started when she was 13 and would watch her older sister do her own. She couldn’t wait to turn 16 so her strict father would finally allow her to wear make up. Make Up always made her feel better behind her thick glasses and does make up to make women feel good.
