After being made redundant, with 3 young children I decided it was time to shine and do something I’d always dreamed, after studying for 3 years I achieved a Level 3 diploma in Theatrical Special effects Hair & Media Make-up. I now run my own successful business and we’re hoping to be nominated at the Lifestyle awards next year for Best Make-Up Artist, Best Salon and Best New Business.
