Rileigh describes her passion for esthetics starting when she in her teens and her first tube of mascara kicked off the passion. She used her own face as her canvas to express her creativity. Either through funky makeup, bold lip, a graphic liner, or her signature fake freckles. She discovered that what she finally decided was her calling, and spoke to the school’s guidance counselor about going into esthetics, the counselor’s response was “so you don’t know what you want to do with your future?” She says she was judged heavily by her choice to pursue her passion, but she did not let that her stop her. As soon as she graduated, she applied for an esthetics program, and walking in she knew in her heart she had made the right choice.
“Since then, I have loved every second of creating, learning, and growing within my passion and am so thankful every day that I pursued esthetics’, she states in her submission. “Beauty to me is confidence, radiance, self-assurance and esthetics provides each of those.” After she becomes a licensed esthetician, she looks forward to finding her own clean, all-inclusive space to transform others and use her knowledge to bring out the beauty to every person she touches.
