I hope you had a very merry Christmas and a brilliant new year and today I am going to answer a question I have been asked a lot, why do I brand myself an “alternative” beauty blogger. Well the simple answer is, because I am not a fan of the pre conceived idea of what is beautiful as a Make-up artist.
I love using make-up as a tool to create characters and unique visuals, this is the same philosophy I apply to my branding and my artwork. For example my painting, such as the piece below which is currently a part of my website.

As I was never formally schooled as a make-up artist (before I started the confusing, frustrating and tedious journey I now know as college) I think it became VERY important to create my own style and unique branding to stand out in the vastly over populated beauty world. I chose to reject the idea of a basic pink and white logo and dusky blue eyeshadow and nude pink lip applications of make-up and make a stand of my vision.

Until next time.
