  When did you realise you were passionate about makeup and why? 

I didn't really have a connection to makeup actually, having studied in NCAD and having creative tendencies towards so many types of artistic layers - it was almost like painting and that's why I started in the industry to work on shapes of faces and eyes and also I thoroughly enjoyed the problem solving part for women or men's concerns with skincare or choice of makeup products. I fell into the industry and 18 years later i am still here.

 

  What do you love most about being a MUA  

Being a makeup artist is a huge responsibility to help enhance and heal people's emotions. Our faces are directly connected to how we feel. If we feel low we look low, if we are made up and feel confident - being a part of the process of helping someone find their confidence and keep it there is quiet special. I really find that my work helps gain their confidence through makeup application. I love to listen. I love to problem solve. I love to teach makeup and make it realistic and do-able.

 

  MUA idol  

I love Val Garland, Terry Barber and Gordon Espinet. The most well known in the real makeup world - not on the Insta online world - these guys are 3 decades long or more in the world of makeup and they are idol legends and inspirations.

 

  Top 3 Beauty products  
  1. Use Shue Mura oil cleanser, it is divine and really great cleanser for the face

  2. Rose water to tone and remove all cleansers and natural water for the face - avoid the tap big time.

  3. YSL Rouge Pur red lipstick - red is like hot and a total must have product in any makeup kit or makeup bag.

 

  Beauty trick or tip 

Skincare techniques - you must massage all products upwards and tap eye cream on the orbital bone and be gentle. You should use radiant creams to enhance skin's luminosity to create a youthful skin look.

Over 35+ you should avoid heavy foundations, they will sit in lines and age you. Take the time to buy a mater mist Avene or La Roche Posay to give yourself instant hydration.

Totally invest in a concealer that works. I love No7 Instant Radiance concealer, it is magic in a pen and is more silky coverage than YSL Touche Eclat. Wear lipstics they are multipurpose and can be blushers also. x
