As a young woman who loved to be neat & tidy, f&f used to appreciate her a lot and wanted her to do their makeup, which made Khadija Islam Reem get more interested in this profession. As she was mostly at home, from that time she started planning of doing something for herself back in 2016. She took her dreams very seriously and started participating in international makeup courses. Mainly those were on makeup, hair cutting, hair color, and nails.
