What inspired you to become a Makeup Artist?

When starting out as an MUA 4 years ago the biggest thing that inspired me was not only the challenge of building a business but most importantly the people in my area who had already made it successful. This was something that was totally different for me and at 15 I wanted to make my own money. I could spend 2 years on the business course with no makeup skills or I could spend 2 years practicing, let’s just say with a lot of hard work I kept on going to where I am today...

What is your favourite part of your job?

Not only letting my creative side loose but the reward factor that I get from my clients and seeing their confidence boost once they are made up!

Tips on makeup staying flawless all day?

Some say use a primer or setting spray however my best tip is to push and pat the product into your skin paired with a good loose powder you’re good to go!

What is your signature look?

Full glam absolutely!

What is the one product that you could not live without?

PLouise base is holy grail!

What are your future career goals?

To become a training educator and teach people my skills.

Biggest mistake people make with their makeup application?

Either applying the base as the first step before eyeshadow or layering powder and cream products the incorrect way - this can be a makeup disaster!
