“Love what you do and enjoyment will follow”.
I absolutely love this saying and I couldn’t agree with it more. I remember leaving school and not knowing what I was going to do with the rest of my life and not having a clue about which direction I was going in. It was only after a gap year of traveling over seas and 3 years of studying a completely different degree that I stumbled across make-up as a profession. It never ever crossed my mind that I could make someone look beautiful for a living.
A friend of mine introduced me to makeup and I remember being so envious of her skills. It wasn’t long after she had me in her makeup chair that I decided that I too wanted to make people feel as beautiful as she made me feel that day.
To me, a makeup artist just enhances someone’s natural beauty. It highlights their assets and disguises their flaws. I consider myself someone that uses makeup as a tool to make a person ‘shine’. It gives me great pleasure to see my client’s reaction when they look in the mirror after I have just done their makeup for a special occasion. For me, they are just looking at a more enhanced version of the beautiful person I saw from the beginning.
I am so lucky to be able to do what I love!
