A little bit about me and makeup!

I'm fairly new to blogging and still trying to figure it out and many of you who are reading my blog most likely don't know me on a personal level or know what I can do with makeup as you haven't seen any pictures!

I don't think I'm a super professional at makeup, but I am proud of my work.
 I am a self-taught makeup artist at 16 and have been interested in makeup since I was very young. I love experimenting with makeup and love art. Makeup is something I enjoy doing.
I have started doing makeup professionally now, which I love love love! Getting paid is the bonus!

When doing makeup I believe a makeup artist should listen to the client.
Not everybody wants a dramatic look or simple look.
Some people like bright colours some don't.
I also think its important to do makeup that will suit the client. For example their eye shape or complexion. I've been upset so many times by a makeup artist giving them a specific description to how i have wanted my makeup done and they've just done what they think would look nice and made my eyes look smaller than they are!
Ok.. over with the rant...

Heres just a few looks I have created (on myself), sorry for the rubbish quality, all photos were taken off my iPhone or Macbook.
Comment tell me what you think/ how I can improve, put your ideas foreword they're appreciated!
