Excellent customer service and relationship building

I was able to develop strong relationships with my clients over time and as a result I was trusted to provide make-up services to clients and their family and friends for their most important events.

I have been able to consistently meet the sales targets set for me throughout both of my positions as I have a strong customer focus and always ensure I have exceptional product knowledge in order to provide the best service and products to customers.
