"This is heartbreaking šŸ’” Lorna was one of my most loyal clients over the past 9 years. Anytime I did her makeup she was so kind, always uplifting and such a joy to be around. The last time I worked on her early this year we took this picture together and right after we hugged and I said to her I am so grateful for her loyalty and her beautiful energy. I will miss her so much, Iā€™m so grateful for the time we had together. Rest in Peace Lorna @kuisan ā™„ļøšŸ™šŸ¾ #riplornairungu." Muthoni captioned a picture of the two
