For me, makeup has always been so much more than a way to look more beautiful, it’s completely transforming: it effects my mood, my confidence, and the way I feel. Ever since I picked up my first pair of tweezers I was transfixed, and by the time I was 14 I was wearing a full face of makeup – I loved it! I started plucking my sister’s friend’s eyebrows, doing my friend’s makeup, and I took on any opportunity I could to get involved with beauty, from doing makeup at school plays to university fashion shows. After university, I began sending out email blasts to my girlfriends with beauty tips, hacks and DIYs – I was blogging and I didn’t even know it. I consider myself beyond lucky that my love for makeup, after many long years of hard work, has turned into a thriving business and a platform for all of us to share beauty.
