I'm a face painter and 80% of the adults loved how I did my makeup and asked if I did it professionally.

Every time I answered "No" that was money that was lost from me. I want to be able to offer a service to the over 10 yr olds as well. :mrgreen:

I've always been pretty good at makeup compared to some who may struggle a bit more at makeup, and I've always been complimented on makeup and good it was. But to really make me want to do makeup is after I did my mums makeup and she was really happy and pleased that it made me feel good because I made her feel good about herself. :)

I was always interested in arts/crafts, drawing; anything that showed off my creativity. Once I entered high school, I discovered makeup and taught myself from Youtube. It started off as a hobby, but once MAC Cometics makeup artists began complimenting my makeup on a daily basis I realized that it's my passion and I truly enjoy doing it; so I'm pursuing it as a career :D

I never had a lot of knowledge in makeup growing up, but I wanted it. So, I joined a sub for makeup on Reddit, and instantly discovered how easy it was for me to spend hours discussing, swatching, experimenting, and enjoying this massive world of makeup. When I realized it was nearly all I thought about for several months, and my joy in it hadn't diminished even slightly, but rather, had grown exponentially, I knew this was what I wanted to pursue. :)

Hi

I have always been interested in makeup but just didn't know how to go about it. For the last few years I have been struggling through uni doing courses I just didn't enjoy. I have always had an interest in hair and makeup I studied some units from the cert 3 in hairdressing but more enjoyed the hairstyling component of it. I can already do hairstyles and basic makeup but know I need some training to call my self a professional MUA. I want to do hair and makeup for weddings and formals or any other special occasions. I have creativity and feel I will do well it would be great to accomplish something really spectacular from this course I want to be remembered for my work. I look forward to collaborating with you all and getting started.
