Hi, Genell Banks for Et Cetera Beauty here. Born and raised Chicago southsider. I began my career first on nail technology as a way to support myself through cosmetology school. I've worked as a hairstylist for several years(more than I care to mention *insert grin*. I'm now actively pursuing a career in makeup artistry as well as finally taking the necessary actions to become a beauty educator after years of longing to accomplish this. Also in the process of developing my website and working on expanding/developing my portfolio as a makeup artist. I absolutely love everything about the beauty industry!!! I hope to develop connections here that will help not only myself but whomever I connect with! I enjoy helping others whenever possible and also to share in anyway possible! I also have a chicago creatives group on Facebook would love for you to join~~>https://m.facebook.com/groups/175365889187035?view=group.
