I was roughly 15 when I began getting into make up. The classic blue eyeshadow/eyeliner and glossy lip was my signature look. So much has changed in the world of make up, it’s truly mesmerising.
I would love class photos so I could do my friends make up. It was something that I prided myself in; knowing what colours suited my friends and what lip colour to choose to make them feel most confident.
Enrolling on a make up course this year was possibly the most exciting and fulfilling thing I have done all year. It was during that period of my life that I needed something distracting to get away from life. The makeup course opened my eyes to all the different face shapes, tones and types. Something that I took into account when doing make up but not knowing the correct terminology or reason; I just knew it looked good.
I’ve never been good at art but make up makes me feel creative. Makes me feel good in so many ways. I can’t explain it. I think I have found my passion in life. Something that makes me truly happy regardless of whether it may become a career or not. It doesn’t matter. I want to pursue it and become better at it. I believe practice makes perfect and I can perfect this.
I would love to become a make up artist. Travel the world. It will happen. Even if it doesn’t, I will enjoy the journey.
