What The Pros Do is a compilation of useful tips, advice and reviews I have picked up on my journey to becoming a makeup artist. I have started WTPD to not only share with you the trials and tribulations of pursuing a career in makeup but to pay forward the advice and lessons I pick up on the way.
Without many of the online resources I have found over the years I probably wouldn’t be where I am today in my career. You would not believe how many bookmarks I have stored and the hours I have clocked up online researching the industry which is where What The Pros Do comes in. I hope that this will grow into a useful resource collating all types of information in one place for beauty junkies and other artists, in particular the newbie’s out there.
In the spring of 2007 I decided to follow my passion for makeup and left my job working in Operations at the Hugo Boss London office for a more creative role in the fashion industry and went back to school. A year and half on, where this blog starts, I am toting my portfolio round town and starting my career as a freelance makeup artist in London.
Just like every working artist my portfolio is a constant work in progress so you will hopefully watch me grow through this blog as an artist and see me take on bigger and better challenges as a freelancer. Below is a small selection of my work.
I don’t claim to be an authority on all things beauty so feel free to join in, post comments, share your opinions and ask questions on the blog.
