I wanted to start this blog as for years I have struggled with my skin and confidence, I have a hormonal condition called PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and one of the many symptoms is Acne, so team that up with my dark under eye circles and and other insecurities and I feel like a hot mess some days.
I am however lucky in the sense that I have always been obsessed by makeup since the age of about 12 years old (if you can count applying bright blue eyeshadow and mascara that looked like terranchelas legs)
I studied Beauty Therapy and Makeup at College so I picked up some of the basic makeup training there but because that wasn’t enough for me and my skin conditions I became obsessed with researching and learning as much as I could about the best ways to hide skin imperfections using the right tools, camoflauging the “imperfection” with certain colours and setting it all in place with good products.
I know how awful it can sometimes feel to have a skin condition and just want to hide it from the world, I also know how frustrating it can be when that seems an impossible thing to do without caking inches of makeup on your face so I want to give back.
I’ve set myself a mission to help at least 300 women this year to get Skin Confident.
Everyone should feel and see how incredibly gorgeous they are and be able to see their beauty regardless of their skin condition but I know that the reality is that for some people the skin condition/”imperfection” can often become their sole focus and effect the way they see them selves and their confidence. I want to teach as many women as possible how to hide those insecurities so they no longer focus on the issue and begin to see and feel how sexy and beautiful they really are. whether it’s Acne, Rosacea, Dark under eye circles, bags or psoriasis it can all be hidden and it’s easy once you know how….I promise.
I am sure I am not the only one that has bought into the big cosmetics brands marketing when they say they have the best coverage foundation that works so well it could basically hide the grand canyon with nothing more than a simple swipe over your face or the primer that is going to completely cover those open pores and imperfections to give you flawless skin only to test it out and find it mediocre at best. “round of applause for their marketing team”
The reality is there is no 1 magic product but there is a method and things people are using you probably werent aware of and if you were you probably weren’t shown the correct way to do it. It’s simple and takes no more than a few minutes in the morning and these simple steps could completely transform the way you look at yourself.
So that is what I am here to do. Show you everything I have learnt over the years about covering insecurities, getting your sexy back and feeling skin confident.
