It has been 12 months since I took the leap to turn my part time passion into a full time career. I have learnt so much over the last twelve months, and not just about makeup. I have been able to fine tune my photography skills whilst also teaching myself the art of high end beauty retouching and post editing. I also taught myself how to build a website, even though technology and I have a very challenging relationship. And more recently I was able to attend a Makeup Masterclass held by @miaconnor to refresh my skills and keep myself updated with the latest techniques and tricks of the trade. This was a great hands-on class covering all things Bridal and Mature Client makeup. I can’t wait to see what I am going to learn over the next twelve months #alwayslearning
A HUGE thanks to the beautiful @sashavandenboogaard for being my model at the Mia Connor Masterclass, you are an absolute pleasure to work with x
