As some of you may know, Daddy was kind enough to send a little moolah my way so that I could fulfill my (pipe?) dream of becoming a makeup artist. I've gone through all the stress and hard work of finishing school, my undergraduate degree and now my Masters degree, but there's that small part of me that wishes I didn't have to spend half of my life in academia and get a full time job in an office straight afterwards. Both my parents are very career driven, and I can't really blame them for wanting me to earn lots of money and be well educated....but there's that little voice inside my head telling me that I'd rather be a professional MUA!
So at least I was able to go to Makeup School for a week to really immerse myself in the world of makeup :) I attended The Makeup School in London, run by professional makeup artists Jacqui McElroy and Anastasia Borovik - two of the most genuine and lovely people I have ever met! They call it a "boutique learning environment" - by which they mean that it's just them, a small group of students and the makeup! We primarily used makeup by Laura Mercier, with some NARS, MAC and Armani too. I had a truly wonderful week and learnt everything there is to know!
If any of you are considering a course in makeup artistry, I would definitely recommend the Makeup School in London (Willesden Junction). Click HERE to see their website. The commute for me from Canterbury was exhausting but completely worth it for a week. Here are some photos of our finished looks from my first week. I'll be going back to May for another course! Enjoy! :)
I'll post some photos up again after I go for my second course in May :-)
