Life and Work with Kathy Adibe

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kathy Adibe.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
While I was pursuing my bachelor’s degree, I gained an interest in makeup. I started to simply fill in my brows and highlight underneath. However, that was trial and error, as I still have pictures from when I used to look like a ghost! After I built my small inventory, I started to practice on my friends for their birthday parties or even graduations. After a few years, I lost interest in makeup because new trends started to become popular such as contouring and full face highlighting. After some time, I decided to give it another shot because I was confident in my talent and my ability to learn, which gave birth to Kryptic Concepts.

Has it been a smooth road?
I struggled with distinguishing myself from other artist and improving my quality of work. I gave up on myself because I was not satisfied with my art. I eventually decided to take a few classes to improve my work. I believe it is important to take classes from other artists to compare and contrast and to figure out what works for you. You can always learn from someone.

Were there people and/or experiences you had in your childhood that you feel laid the foundation for your success?
When I was a child, I occasionally wore my mother’s lipstick. But I started wearing eyeliner and mascara in high school. I was not a fan of foundation or press powder in high school, though my peers wore them. I stuck with the basics.
