I have been a makeup artist for the last 12 years after a career change at 30. I’ve always been creative, dabbling in photography, acting and many arts and crafts along the way. For 10 years I had a desk job in media and while it was fun it wasn’t my passion. 7 years ago I had my daughter and went on maternity leave and never went back to the office, I’ve been running the business as a hair and makeup artist ever since and haven't looked back. This job is an extension of my love for art and design and I’ve never been happier.
Makeup isn’t good or bad per se, it’s about making sure the skin is well cleansed after it is worn. I do recommend having some days to let your skin breathe though and save it for special occasions or the weekend.

My mum took me to the Revlon counter at 14 and I fell in love with using it, especially eye makeup!
That you don’t have to wear much to look and feel great.
I recommend wearing a light, radiant tinted moisturiser or mixing an illuminator into your foundation. Applying some cream blush on the cheeks and a cream highlight then a little eyeshadow and mascara and you’re done - fresh, natural beauty.
