The same goes for me too. Battling breast cancer and going through chemotherapy took a lot out of me, especially where my appearance was concerned. A lot changed for me in terms of how I looked, especially due to hair loss, weight loss and changes in my skin. One thing I could turn to, to help me feel better, was my makeup. Being a makeup artist during this time of my life, was such a blessing for me. I was able to lift my spirits and make myself feel amazing and confident, just like I had been doing for years with my clients. It was now my turn to feel this way, through the power of makeup.
Makeup has always been my super-power; My super tools, especially during the time in my life, when I didn’t look or feel myself. I embraced my new look and with the help of makeup, began to fall in love with the “new me”.
I feel like my passion for makeup has intensified from my experience and I love creating new looks to match my new look. Makeup brought me back to life, filled me with confidence that just oozes out when I am all glammed up. I capture this through my photography, as I do with all my clients. I’m able to savour that special moment, something that is so for me to reflect on.
