Makeup is an amazing thing. It has the ability to change someone’s features, identity or even just confidence. Makeup was introduced to me through my dancing. Performing on stage I adored, but I loved putting on all of the makeup beforehand just as much. As I got older I realised that I noticed makeup everywhere, strangers on the street, models in magazines and even the way artists created a look on a soap. Quickly I became obsessed, practicing, playing and creating different looks with different techniques. From the age of 17 I was constantly being asked ‘are you a makeup artist?’, and when my reply was ‘no’ people always looked shocked. As a waitress I was even asked if I had a price list by two ladies who didn’t even ask if I was a makeup artist or not! I realised that makeup was my thing it was one skill I knew I had and that came naturally to me, and so it became my dream, to make other people feel as confident as I felt when I put on my makeup. Becoming a makeup artist would be perfect for me, it’s something I want to make a living from, I want to learn more and more, as much as I can, becoming the best I can be.
Eventually I’ve taken the plunge, after years of debating I’ve put my savings into setting up my own business. I know I’m going to put everything I’ve got into this job, making it my number one priority and hopefully building a client base of gorgeous women of a range of ages.
I know young girls have their proms coming up soon and I want to make this my first stepping stone. I am going to have a price of just £15 for a full face of makeup to anyone wanting to book me in for their prom night. This will cover the cost of my makeup and travelling. I want to do this for a low price because I know people and places over charge-because they can! A prom is something every girl will remember for the rest of their lives and I want to help create that feeling of looking in the mirror and feeling a million dollars. Whether that means natural makeup to enhance their best features or more glam and sparkly. This is the reason I want to make it in the makeup industry (becoming a makeup artist) because the feeling of watching a client look in the mirror and see their faces light up never gets boring, if makes you feel amazing! I want to make sure all young girls have the opportunity, especially on such a special day, to afford to get all glammed up!
