Nouran, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Make-up Artist, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
When I see them i try to figure out their style and way of talking, try to ask them some questions at the beginning to know their vision, then simply start

At my beginnings when I started working on my branding
Nouran, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
