I have always said that makeup artistry is an art. The face in front of you is your canvas and makeup is your paint.
I am sure that some of you, at some point have been asked to makeup for someone else, whether it’s a family member or a client. I am also sure that at some point you have had to balance/ manage the reality expectations and client expectations, when it comes to makeup application.
Often the person sitting in your chair has an idea of what they want from their look and have throught about its outcome, so when the reality of the makeup application does not meet the fantasy then the fault is yours.
It is important if you are a makeup artist/ starting out or do it for fun that you are able to manage the realistic expectations with that of the Clients.
I knew when I was getting married that I was going to be doing my own make up. I mean I am a makeup artist.
It is one thing working on a client than it is working on yourself. On a Client, you know exactly what foundation your going to use (usually a MAC or a well know brand) or the Client will tell you what they want. However, when your doing your own make up, you become so picky about the foundation and products you will use, to create that perfect look. I don’t know why this is, but you drive yourself completely mad looking for the perfect base. The base is the make or break of the rest of the makeup, you get the base right and everything else will fall into place.
Every girl wants amazing hair and makeup on a special occasion, especially when that occasion is her wedding day. I have never worn hair extensions before, I am more of a wig girl, so when I started looking for hair extensions for my wedding, it was safe to say I was utterly clueless. I didn’t know which brands were good and what to look for.
The one thing that I love about being a beauty blogger is attending events. To most people attending a networking event can be daunting, but I love them. I get to meet new people, brands and really put myself out there.
Launch parties are my favourite, I love being the first to see a new product, interacting with the creator and having the opportunity to buy the product first.
