Hello my name is Julie Pioche. I am from the island of Dominica. I am not rich, not famous but I think my life story can help to inspire other people across the Caribbean.

I look at life as a journey, with many obstacles along the way but I am happy for those who have inspired me.

I found a passion that I am proud of and fortunately this has also allow me to fulfill my dream. Makeup is my passion and it is an important part of my life. On the surface, my amazement and passion for the world of makeup sometimes surprise my friends

As I’ve gotten older I’ve found a new appreciation for the art of makeup and how it can mean so many different things to different people. For me it is also a step to the next level, beyond the shores of Dominica.

So how did I get here? In 2008 I started doing makeup, it was a dream come true. At first it started as a hobby and then quickly I realized that I could do this for a living. I was also looking for ways to improve my skills and a couple of years later I left Dominica for Trinidad and Tobago to study makeup.

On my return to Dominica, I realized that if I was to take this art to the next level, I had to launched my own business. I did that as soon as I was able to find enough capital and today I am proud to say, I now own my own business which is located in Roseau, Dominica.

It has been a big struggle and I although I continue to face obstacles, I am pushing myself to grow my business. Thanks to my family, friends and my faith in God, I have been able to overcome some major obstacles.

I have always seen myself as a role model for those with similar passion for the art of makeup. I’ve discovered a whole new world of makeup out there and that’s what keeps me going each day.

Women are beautiful in all shapes and sizes and makeup applied correctly enhance their beauty. Just as I started to look at myself differently in the mirror in terms of the definition of true beauty, that’s the reason why I take my time with every woman that sits in front of me and place their trust in me, to simply make their beauty shine.

I continue to believe that the sky is the limit. Perhaps you were told that living in a small island means you have to dream small but I know you can do great things. I am confident that I will make a big impression on the rest of the world and make my family, friends and people of Dominica proud.

God changed my life in so many ways. It was my something beautiful and all the gorgeous women that allowed me to apply their makeup, have been part of my journey.

I LOVED EVERY MOMENT of this journey, even the hard ones and I wouldn’t change a single thing.
