Ways to enhance your Canvas Portfolio:

AND the best part is that it doesn’t have to be overly produced – whip out your iPhone and hit record.
2. Write your bio.
Spend a few moments to write down 4 or 5 sentences talking to your journey in beauty and how you will change people’s lives!
3. Sync your Instagram.
Enter your @handle in the Instagram field of your portfolio and we will sync the last 12 photos of your Instagram right to your Canvas Portfolio. No need to double upload. Your Canvas Portfolio will ALWAYS showcase your latest work. * your profile must be public for this to work.
4. Upload Imagery – Cover image
In this creative world of beauty imagery is everything! Make sure to creatively express yourself and get uploading!
