Since childhood I've always wanted to be a hairdresser and also
'do' makeup.  Eventually in 1995, now married with two young children
and more time on my hands (really?) I decided to follow my
childhood dream.

I soon realised becoming a hairdresser would take a few years training
so I decided  by becoming an Esthetician (Beauty Therapist), which
included Makeup Artistry,  I can complete a full time course a lot quicker
and still be in the personal care field, which is what I wanted.

I graduated with Honours (top of the class...phew!)

I then took the next step and opened a Beauty Salon, offering
Beauty Therapy and Makeup Application.

I enjoyed the makeup side of the business so much, seeing women
transformed, showing them how to bring out their best and increasing
their confidence and it made me realise I wanted to learn more on a
professional level.

Maybe this is where I was meant to be and why I didn't become the
hairdresser I thought I wanted to be....who knows :-)

I signed up for a full time Diploma course in makeup that covered
all aspects of makeup artistry including Theatre, Television, Film,
Special Effects, Bridal, Photographic etc.

The years have flown by, my children have grown and left home,
giving me more time to follow my dream and develop my skills.

I sold the salon and started freelancing, working from home. 

I've kept up to date through workshops and courses from master
makeup artists.

Over the last few years I've seen the start and expansion of the Beauty 'influencers' and 'enthusiasts' trend offering tutorials and advice and this has caused me concern.  Some of the things they are teaching are....well....alarming!!

I want you to learn how to take care of your skin, your health and apply makeup correctly and most of all safely. This is why I decided to offer lessons where you can teach yourself the correct way on how to apply makeup etc professionally  - from a qualified, experienced makeup artist.

You're going to find these lessons different to what you have learnt before if you
have been a follower of YouTube beauty enthusiasts

Professional makeup artists win awards such as Emmys, Oscars, BAAFTA's etc. They are trained in applying makeup on all skin types and know how to bring out the best in every face shape, type, color etc.

It takes a lot to become a Master in the art of makeup
'
Having two seperate Diplomas as an Esthetician and Makeup Artist and over 20 years experience, I offer more knowledge and experience than many others.

Please join me, follow me, subscribe....I have a lot to share!
