We had the good fortune of connecting with Cecee Marie and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cecee, what do you attribute your success to?
EDUCATION!! “When you know better, you do better.” Most clients just don’t know. Yes they have tried everything but did they really know what they were using and why?!

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I believe I’ve always been creative. I love to express myself thru MY ART… whether I’m “prepping the canvas” or “painting faces”.

SKIN CARE allows me to help clients feel good. Confidence plays a big factor in how people experience life.
MAKEUP allows me to help clients look good. Whether I’m bringing visions and/or characters to life or just enhancing natural features it’s the smile on people’s faces that bring me joy.

In this business it is important to LISTEN to the needs and wants of the client. But the major key is to DELIVER!! Explore all options and give informative recommendations. As a professional it is important to be honest and do what is in the clients best interest. This is the only to gain trust and loyalty.

It’s been a journey to get where I am today. There was alot of trial and error but mainly just hard work and the constant want to perfect my craft. Continued education is a must, the beauty industry is always changing. Staying acquainted with the latest research/trends, technology and products is the best way to continued success. I will show you results, I’ll give my 100%.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Fun equals FOOD!!! LA has some amazing eateries, from food trucks to franchises. I honestly wouldn’t know where to begin, it would be hard to fit all in.

We would definitely hit up Billionaire Burgers and hope that Lady on the Rocks was somewhere close. Maybe a taco Tuesday at the District or brunch at the Perch…that french toast tho. And somewhere in the we would have to have some Hot N Juicy!!!

With all those calories it’s great that we have so many walkable and interactive sites. The Musuem of Illusions, Dream Space, Flutter and Museum of Selfies are just a couple places we could enjoy.

At the end of the day, it could be just as simple a visit to Leimert Park and a walk along the beach.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My Mommie…lol, the epitome of hard work and dedication. Sometimes the job goes beyond business hours. When you have a passion for something it never feels like work. Helping people is a powerful privilege…SHE TAUGHT ME THAT!!!
