I don’t know why I haven’t shouted about this louder…
But I am so very proud to announce that I am The Wedding Industry Awards Make-up Artist of the Year 2019 East of England! I won the Regional Finals back in November and I can’t even begin to explain how humbled and grateful I was. I still am!
Winning the Regional final to me was actually the dream. To be considered the best make-up artist in my home town, in my county and neighbouring counties, where I work and network is THE ultimate highlight of my career.
Earlier this week was the National Finals. ALL the Regional Finalists met at the opulent Cafe de Paris where we were dolled up to the nines and treated to champagne and some incredible live music from Wedding band (and 2X national winners) Funtime Frankies. Winning the National title would’ve been an outstanding moment, truly mind blowing stuff. I was up against 7 other make-up artist, essentially we are the top 8 make-up artists in the UK… This year wasn’t my year to take home the Big One but, you know what? I am happy! Happy with my Regional title and really happy for the winner. We all support each other and know that it could very well be any of us next year! Do I enter again??
The next step for me is to read the anonymous testimonials that my clients left me when they voted. I haven’t been sent them yet but I’m pretty sure they will make me cry…
**EDIT** They arrived, I read them. I cried! So many 10/10’s.. oh boy.
All your support hasn’t gone unnoticed, thank you so much!
