Karen Macharia’s dashing style is no secret that she was indeed meant for the world of cosmetics.

The now renowned makeup artist, ‘Faces By Karsha’, left a high position in the marketing department at Etihad Airways, Nairobi office, a year ago to get into the beauty industry.

Despite being in the airline industry for close to six years, Karen’s love for beauty knew no limits; she had to go for it.

However, just like many, leaving employment, and for this matter, a well-paying job was not easy. But thanks to her sister who encouraged her to take the risk and turn her passion into even a much better-paying occupation.

Among other projects, Karen is one of the leading make-up artists for regional True Love and Drum Magazines.

In our fifth episode of Respect The Hustle, we focus on Karen’s transition journey, challenges and why she never regrets being an entrepreneur.
