In 2002 KC became a photographer and also started doing her client’s makeup as well and fell in love with making people feel happy and more confident about themselves.


In 2004 she began attending college at Uniaraxa to become a Nurse. There she was quickly nominated the leader of her class by the others students to be their voice and manage the class’s interests in front of the principal. All of that happend because in the 1st week Kenya created T-shirts and jackets and arranged for models to present her projects, and the class loved the idea! Later she became president of the dorm as she created a team to keep “order”, creating rules to be followed by everyone to keep those in the dorm working for those who needed it. Kenya received many compliments from the principal for the idea.

KC is a leader by nature: In 2007 she started an adventure by moving to the United States where she found her love, got married and had a beautiful son. The crafting art and love for beauty runs in her family as Kenya’s sister Keyla Maria is also very skilled. While Kenya was living in the USA Keyla Maria fell in love with Permanent Makeup and asked Kenya if she could provide her PMU Training as a gift. Kenya was excited right away by the idea and said yes!

Keyla did an amazing job during her classes and got hired right away by the PMU School where she quickly became an instructor and manager. During this time Keyla had been motivating Kenya to become a Permanent Makeup artist as she knew Kenya would do an amazing job as well. That was when they both decided to open their own PMU Academy in Contagem MG, Brazil in 2012.

In September of 2012 Kenya Cardoso finally went back to Brazil to learn everything from her yet highly skilled and experienced sister Keyla Maria. Kenya received intensive one on one training and learned the fundamentals of the Application of Permanent Cosmetics and all advanced training available in the industry. Colorimethy, skin anatomy, all kinds of machine existing in market, the best techniques created by machine work and other skills. During the training, Kenya and Keyla were impressed by the number of people calling and asking to be KC’s model as they went crazy after learning she was the one being trained. All that commotion happened because everyone from her hometown knew Kenya’s crafting skills since she was very young. Kenya took many advanced classes and was able to achieve incredible results that made her sister very proud!! Kenya knew she would do great as she was learning from the best! Her sister Keyla Maria!

Since Kenya Cardoso is a resident of the USA she returned ready to open her facility in Apollo Beach, Florida. She became an instructor as she wants to share her knowledge and teach everything to anyone who ever falls in love for machine techniques and wants to learn her secrets that deliver the most beautiful permanent make-up results clients have ever seen. Kenya says the implantation of the pigment is an art and whoever learns it the right way with outstanding training can become a great and admired artist!
