Once Upon a Time
Co-founders Sonia and Richard Palmeiro, citizens of the world (having been fortunate to have lived in South America, South Africa, Europe, Asia and more recently discovered the Middle East and influenced by different cultures), bring together their experience, in Social Work, Makeup Artistry, Material Engineering and Management, with their belief that confidence is everyone’s power.
The passion for makeup, believing that confidence equals empowerment, and the will to change people’s lives positively, is what encourages our brand. We exist because we want people to feel special, beautiful and confident always. This only happens from the inside out because it is in every one of us that we can find beauty and confidence, in our personal story and in our desire TO BE BETTER every day, and the DESIRE TO BE HAPPY.
So, belief, have confidence,
share your dreams with the ones you love
and …magic happens
And that is how Faces with Story began, with a dream that was shared with a friend, who too fell in love with the project. A project that believes that confidence makes people achieve great things. We shared this passion with more friends and saw how much excitement arose. This excitement was so contagious and soon we had many believers.
My story with makeup got sparkled when I started to witness my first signs of aging. And I said to myself, I feel so young and I feel as playful as I did in my teens. I want to look as I feel.
I believe makeup is a tool for everyone who dares to use it, to give colour to the roles we feel and play in life. Makeup brings confidence in who we are. We are people who strive to fulfil our many missions in life. We are the bride, the wife, the mother, the daughter, the executive, the artist, the teenager, the adult, the sassy, the bold, the adventures, the dreamer, the brave, the dare, …And makeup is a means to simulate confidence in each one of us, in each one of our roles.
Makeup is also Fun and Exciting. It’s like the best hobby in the world. You, makeup fans, know exactly how I feel. We could play with makeup for hours. The glow, the colours, the smells, the creation and the transformation. It’s all magic.
So, I share you this thought, to always remember:
YOU are the centre of your story, surrounded by your dreams, victories, uncertainties, happy and sad moments, and many moods that encircle you
and bring you up and down. The important thing is to stand up and rise from the moods that bring you down. Seek your inspiration. Be brilliant and shine bright like a star using your heart always in everything you do and everything you are!
