Chika Chan

Posh Kids magazine had the amazing opportunity to work with MAKE-UP PRO during fashion week for our Kids Collection. We were in awe at the speed and quality the group of makeup artists and hairstylists who’d worked while being led by Chika. MAKE-UP PRO is owned by sisters Chika and Cheve Chan and have been behind the scenes in notable shows and events such as NYFW, NYFW BRIDAL, VEVO, Popsugar Digital NewFront, Revlon “Love Is On”, W Hotel x Tara Stiles, and so much more. We caught up with one of the amazing partners of MAKE-UP PRO, Chika Chan, and the opportunity to do a quick interview.

[Posh Kids] When did you know a career in beauty was for you?
[Chika Chan] As a kid, I always enjoyed drawing and singing. I started doing make-up at the age of eighteen. Beauty has been my passion ever since.

[PK] You are an inspiration for many. Who inspired you?
[CC] My aunt was a make-up artist in Hong Kong. She has been a huge inspiration of mine. Whenever I used to go back to Hong Kong for holidays she would bring me to the set and have me work as her assistant.  I was constantly surrounded by colors and talent.  She taught me so much about the beauty industry and I fell in love with it.

[PK] What prompted you to create MAKE-UP PRO?
[CC] Both my mom and dad are entrepreneurs so I always knew I wanted to have my own business.

[PK] We know today’s moms are busier than ever. What is the easiest and quickest way to turn a day into a mommy night on the town look?
[CC] As a mom, you have little to no sleep so concealer can help correct and conceal skin so you look more fresh and awake. Lipstick can help give color and personality. You can also use it as a blush for your cheeks. Eyeliner can add drama for the night.
