Growing up, Sly was not much of a makeup girl. She first tried doing makeup while in college, and like many, she started with the basic lipstick application and moved to threading eyebrows. After trying her hand at threading eyebrows, she found that it was pretty easy to do, at least on her part, and she decided from then onward that she would not pay people to thread her eyebrows. She acquired a pair of tweezers and powder and started her craft. Now, she is a top makeup artist and has worked with various celebrities and brands.
