I really love this.
My eyes are small and hooded, I have a big bean shaped nose (thanks mum) and my lips are thinner than my patience for jehovah witness’ getting me out of bed for a chat.
But I couldn’t be happier. (Most of the time)
In my spare time I love researching make up on social media, getting different ideas for new make up looks and just enjoying seeing other artists work. It’s such an inspiring place but sometimes I can’t help but compare myself to these girls. These big eyed, big lipped and smooth skinned beauties.
On my bad days I feel really beaten down by these
unrealistic and impossible to achieve standards - and sometimes feel like...there is no escape! We are constantly surrounded by it no matter where you look.
Then come to my senses and snap out of it. I remind myself that I got into make up artistry through nothing other than sheer and utter passion and what matters more than anything, is that I’m producing the highest standard of work to the best of my ability and am continuously growing as an artist. Not how pretty I look in a picture.
We all need a little more faith in ourselves. We are honestly enough 💘
I have had a lot of messages lately regarding the same things. So I thought I'd put a little post together just explaining a few bits;
▪️I only do makeup at the weekend - if this changes for any reason, I will notify you.
▪️I am not mobile - I am based at @hairandbeautyhouse Queens Road in Southport every Saturday. Friday evenings and Sunday's I am available from my Mum's house in Churchtown. For parties of 4+, I will do mobile within reason. ▪️I have a full time job throughout the week so please bare with me when messaging. I've had a lot of people message me but as I may not have been able to get back to them quick enough, they have gone elsewhere and I've had the 'you took too long to reply' message 🤦🏻♀️
▪️Friday nights, I will only be available from 6:30 onwards. I live in Manchester so please allow time for me to finish work and head back.
▪️At the time of booking, FULL payments will be taken. This is to avoid no shows and cancellations - if you do need to cancel, that is fine! Just please let me know at LEAST 24 hours before your appointment. Doing this will guarantee your payment being carried over for 3 months so you can book in again.
▪️I will not be taking any appointments for next year, until next year. When I have a new diary, I will notify you of this so you can all arrange your bookings.
▪️Sundays throughout October and November are £20 (with or without lashes) - this does not include Halloween or Bridal. ▪️ Prices vary for different things - please get in touch for further details of this.
If you have any questions, please let me know but I hope this has helped to clarify a few queries! 🖤💄
