WHO INTRODUCED THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY TO YOU?
EVGENIYA BOGDAN: It was my mom, without her I wouldn't even come close to the world of beauty. Due to flu outbreak my school was under quarantine for two months, so I had heaps of free time.

All in all, I've been in the beauty industry for 20 years already...
