Maisie‘s willingness to support others in the American beauty industry is well known, but she also has stretched her positive example and training to the development of the industry in other parts of the world. A native of Liberia and American citizen, she launched her skincare and professional makeup brand, BluffaJo, in African countries such as Ghana, Lagos, Liberia and Nigeria, inspiring persons in those countries to uplift their lives.
Yes, Maisie’s honesty, integrity and sincerity are well known by everyone who knows her, whether as close friends or as mere acquaintances. But I must say, for me, her commitment to prayer is dear to me. Maisie knows that surviving the day, a career or a tragedy can be through prayer, and I love that about her.
Please forgive my being more personal than business-like in my recommendation of Maisie, but I truly feel the shining of the beautiful internal Maisie to the world is the secret to her success, that showing that beauty uplifts everyone around her.
