Alina knew her life mission is to serve her community in some way. She was born in Ukraine and moved to the United States when she was just 17. She found her true calling when she was hired for her first job at the makeup counter for Estée Lauder. She loved making her clients happy by bringing out their inner beauty with a makeup transformation. After years as a freelance makeup artist, she decided to take the next step and fulfill her dream of becoming an esthetician. As an immigrant she truly understands the importance of community and believes that sharing her gifts of bringing out the inner beauty of those in her care. “Life is a journey” and Alina continues to align her work and hopes to someday be financially secure to bring her family to the US to share in her dreams!
