Some people find it hard to do their own makeup and end up hiring makeup artists instead. Zayna Kigenyi, a mobile make up artist who also doubles as a final year student at Makerere University is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Construction Management.
Kigenyi linked up with Campus Bee and discussed a number of issues.
How did you learn how to do makeup?
I went to Nabisunsa Girls’ school where I got the passion for make up in my senior six after sosh. I decided to learn and started trying make up on my friends at school with the little available make up.
In form 6 vacation, I started learning how to do makeup from Instagram and YouTube. I kept trying until I became good and made it her business. I do all kinds of makeup. Makeup for occasions, photoshoots, bridal and make up art .
How do you balance books with work?
It’s hard balancing books with my hustle because at times appointments collide with my school timetable especially when it’s time for assessments and exams ending up cancelling the appointments.
Where do you see yourself in a few years?
I hope to open up my own makeup studio as well as build a team of mobile make up artists to continue my mobile make up services.
