Hello! Whether you’re my past, present or future client, bride, mother of the bride or simply just a follower, welcome back to my new and improved website and blog. It’s been a hot minute since I last blogged but I’m finally getting back into it.
It’s been one busy year! Most of you probably don’t know
but I’ve been working 2 other jobs since March this year alongside my freelancing makeup business. As you can imagine, my schedule has been pretty tight and lack of time was the main reason I stopped blogging. My freelancing and growing my business has been my main focus this year as it’s not just about applying makeup. There’s all the admin work such as emails to reply too, schedules to make and accounting. Overall I’ve enjoyed beautifying all my clients this year and it was an amazing year for me and my business. I had clients not just from Portugal and England, but also from Irland, Holland, Canada, Australia and the USA! I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to meet and work with each one of my clients and I’m looking forward to next year.
2017 was also the year I decided to invest in myself, not just as a person but also as a professional. I’ve attended various workshops, online courses, eyelash lifting and tinting course and also traveled back to the UK to expand my knowledge and techniques in the industry. Plus, the amount of books I’ve managed to read this year is no joke!
During this journey, I’m hoping to share some of the things that happen in my life, the joys and the difficulties of being a makeup artist and growing as a person, but also share some of my experiences with you. After all, I’m just a young adult fighting for a dream. I’ve also come to the conclusion that it’s a blessing to love my job much as I do. Even when I have to wake up at 4 am for early call outs.
I’ve got no official schedule yet as to what days I’ll be posting new things as I need to sit down and work out a schedule. My blog will be a summary of other social media platforms you can find me on, just slightly more in-depth. I will also be creating email updates and other exciting things which you’ll be able to sign up to very soon! I’ll keep you updated on that one.
All in all this year hasn’t been an easy year but it’s been a good one! I’m grateful for every client that sat in my chair and I feel lucky they chose me to be part of their special day.
Don’t be afraid to follow your dreams. Determined to make 2018 even better!
