Get to know the ‘make-up’ side of me.

Before I go travelling I thought it was only right to introduce you to my make-up side. It only seemed right as I basically do make-up everyday, as it’s my job.

If you follow my Instagram @thatwanderlustboho you will see in my bio that i’m a make-up artist. You will also know that I work at MAC if you read my last blog post My reasons to travel the world.  

Working at MAC is one of the best things to happen to me. I’ve worked at MAC for almost 2 years and it has been pretty amazing so far.

But, how did I get to where I am now?

To get my dream job I did a part time theatrical make-up diploma. While I was at college I had to get a temporary job. And that job was, McDonald’s! I know what you’re thinking, how did I go from McDonald’s to MAC? Well, it turned out my temporary job at McDonald’s wasn’t actually that temporary at all. I worked at McDonald’s for 5 long years. Whilst working there I worked at 3 different locations and worked my way up to manager. I enjoyed it for a while but it was hard. I don’t think people realise the stress you are put through. As much as I wanted to leave in the end, I can’t knock it as it got me to where I am today.

It took me a long time to realise what I wanted to do. I wasn’t very confident and the thought of actually getting a job at MAC seemed impossible to me. That was until I met my brother’s friend, who is now my friend, and pushed me to go for the job. (She helped me so much, I’m still thankful to this day). So, I applied. And, hurrah! I got the job.

I will skip all the details of how I did this, for now, as this will be a good blog post in future 😉

So, why MAC? To me MAC is the Holy Grail when it comes to make-up. There wasn’t any other brand I wanted to work for. My make-up bag mainly consists of  MAC products and I love what MAC stands for as a company.

I hope you enjoyed getting to know my  make-up side. I will now leave you with a really vain instagram make-up selfie….
