  • A couple of weeks ago I attended a makeup course with the very talented @karlapowellmua, she is one of my favourite makeup artist so it was an honour to see how she works and get some advice and tips. 
Although she is a very talented MUA one of the things I admire most is the career and name she has made for herself. We fumble through this industry with no way of knowing how to "make it" or get the jobs we desire. Too see and meet someone that is honest and made their own path is incredible.

I learnt so much and was truly inspired that I can do this for myself, I've taken so much of her advice already and will continue on my own journey hoping to be somewhere close. 
We should all strive to inspire and help others, we need to pull each other up and show genuine happiness for others achievements. This is what I personally strive for..... I believe I was meant to meet Karla, she gave me the push when I needed it most. 
I hope I can be that artist for someone someday too.
