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 a Beauty Therapist, which included Makeup Artistry,  I could 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!)
  
Following graduation, I opened a Beauty Salon in the up-market suburb of Mt Lawley, Perth, Western Australia offering Beauty Therapist services and Make Up application. The salon was very successful and soon expanded so that I eventually employed two more Beauty Therapists and Make Up specialists.

I then expanded my Makeup services by studying and obtaining a Diploma in Makeup Art and Design.  This gave me extra training in specialist services such as TV, movies, professional photography and special effects. 
 
As the years passed, life changed in many ways which included selling the Salon. At that time I decided I wanted to add more to my services in the personal care field so I decided to study and became employed as a counsellor in women's health and weight loss using Chinese herbal medicines. 
 
This was a rewarding time that helped me add skills in helping find the beauty within, personally on many levels and for my clients too. I still worked as a beauty therapist and makeup artist part time.
 
With good health comes glowing skin and vitality - a distinct advantage when applying makeup and seeing the beautiful benefits as a result....

I found counselling very enjoyable and rewarding, but I still had my passion for Beauty and Make Up and decided to return and freelance as a mobile artist and therapist - now adding my experiences in womens' health and well-being.
   
During this time building my client base, I also updated my skills through workshops and courses from master makeup artists.
   
I now offer you unique services as I'm Diploma qualified in two different fields - not many makeup Artists can offer this specialisation.
 
I have completed full time comprehensive study in
1.  Beauty Therapy
2.  Makeup Artistry
 
With Beauty Therapy courses some makeup tuition is included  -  in Make Up Artistry, some beauty therapy is included, but both offer very limited training in natural health care.
 
Having studied for two separate Diplomas for Makeup and Beauty Therapy, I bring to you knowledge and experience that aren't offered by many Beauty Therapists or Make Up Artists.
 
 Add to this my experience in natural health care and you have a wealth of knowledge and training at your disposal.

Now, in the present day I have wound down my services to only a few regular clients as I have decided to spend more time educating people with free makeup lessons, tips and advice on makeup, beauty care and leading a healthy natural lifestyle.

This came about because I have noticed over the years the rise in poplarity in makeup and beauty `enthusiasts` or `influencers and to be honest, some of the advice they give has made me shake my head in disbelief in what they are saying.  I really want to set the record straight and also make it safe for people wanting to apply their own makeup and use correct products for their beauty routines.

Makeup Artists and Estheticians have been professionaly trained and can have many years experience, enthusiasts and influencers haven`t. There is a big difference !!

I write more about it in my blog post here and I highly recommend you read it to fully understand what you will gain by following my free lessons  and not the beauty infuencers and enthusiasts. Learning correctly from a professional will give you the best experience which will show in your flawless makeup application and savvy spending on cosmetics and makeup. 

If you have any questions, please Get In Touch , I`m happy to answer any and all questions.
