Being the ripe age of 26 it appears everyone my age is getting married, which is good news for me as a makeup artist because it means wedding season is back on and I get to play “dress ups” doing hair and makeup for brides.

As Sydney comes into Summer we have some amazing weather involving 30 degree days and cracking Summer thunderstorms in the evening. Excellent for ruining any Friday and Saturday night plans.

Most people I meet (mainly the gentlemen) love this statement “God you must spend a lot on makeup”. Or the ladies often phrase it a little more politely, “oh I could never afford to look like that every day”.

Contouring is probably my most favourite thing in makeup, and I would happily have spent all my money on that course just on this segment. When I wake up in the morning looking like I’ve had an anaphylactic reaction to my pillow case, or you kn...

Wise words from my makeup teacher.

 

Having spent 2 years of my life and several thousands of dollars on my beauty and makeup education (not including years of experience!) I thought I’d save you the same kind of dough and time and give you the best of what I know. Inste...
