My name is Peggy, and I am a freelance makeup artist based in Melbourne Australia. I specialise in bridal, beauty and editorial makeup.
I am super excited to start this blog and bring to all my followers (yes you, please follow me), bridal inspiration, makeup and skincare tips, product reviews, tutorials and pretty much anything makeup related.
So why have I started this blog?
Quite simply I love making women feel beautiful and more confident. When a client sits in my chair, all I can focus on is how I can enhance their beauty so they look and feel great.
I always get asked lots of questions from friends, clients etc about skincare and makeup. Suffice to say that I know a bit about skin and makeup through my training and experience but in these days of social media overwhelm (I reckon that’ll be a medical condition soon enough), it’s often difficult to separate fact from fiction and I’m concerned about all the ‘noise’ out there. And the confusion it’s creating.
This blog is an avenue for me to share my knowledge and education you so you are better informed about all things skin and makeup. To be able to make better skin and makeup purchases (regardless of budget). To be a more confident and relaxed bride. To be in the know. My blog will cover a range of topics.
- Bridal: Weddings are huge and brides are often overwhelmed with a gazillion choices so helping them out is important so a major focus of this blog is to help out brides with inspiration, makeup advice and information to help achieve wedding success.
- Products: Stuff I like, stuff I don’t and why
- Tips and tricks – things I’ve learnt along the way to make you look better
- Current issues in skin and makeup (no it won’t be all about the Kardashian ladies)
- Anything else you want me to cover (just drop me a line)
Now guess what? I don’t know everything. Yeah that’s right. There is no one out there that knows everything and is an all-encompassing expert and neither am I. But given my passion for makeup and making women look beautiful, I’m always learning both on the job, networking and more formal education and I want to be able to share this information with you.
With my corporate background, years of travel, I’ve spent a LOT of time communicating – meetings, reports, presentations, you name it. I genuinely love communicating and this blog is a further outlet to release and share my thoughts, opinion and ideas to help women make better choices.
I’ll be trying to release a blog post (roughly) once per fortnight – in the next issue, ’ll share a little more about me, how I came into makeup and my first Sephora experience. If you haven’t already subscribed to my mailing list you can do so here. That way you’ll be up-to-date. Ill also be sharing blogs via all my social media channels so please like and follow me on the links below if you already don’t. And if you like what you read don’t forget to share it with others (see the share link below).
I write, you read and hopefully you get to enjoy and learn something new along the way.
In the meantime, why not check out my galleries here!
Till next time
