The steps I took to get from Banking to Beauty!

If ever there was a time, we all pause to assess our current career.
Covid19 is certainly the time for many of us!
With time to think I remember so well the time I made the leap from banking to beauty and what a huge leap it was!

Are you reconsidering what you do and why you do it? Would you like to work for yourself? Or work at something you love?

I wanted all the above so when I graduated for LA College of Creative Art, I began a career working with the no.1 celebrity makeup artist in the world – Charlotte Tilbury!

Ironically, my banking background helped me secure the job as Charlotte loved the combination of art and commerce.

I was one of the 5 makeup artists introducing Charlotte’s brand to Ireland and working in Brown Thomas’s flagship store on Grafton Street. My leap from banking to beauty was a success and I cannot wait to share all backstage stories and experiences with you all!
If you feel you want to make any kind of a leap here are some basic steps, I followed that kept me on a path to success.

  • Find your passion feel the power of it and focus what excited you.
  • Believe in yourself.
  • Be nice to everyone you meet along the way.
  • Set mini goals along the way and tick them off one by one.

You can do it once you decide to go for it!
Ask me questions I love to share my story how I became a makeup artist and started my own business.
