They say that if you love what you do for a living you will never have to work a single day in your life ever again. I love what I do and I am grateful everyday that I am living my dream. What this quote doesn't tell you is that you will still need time for yourself, holidays and quiet time to rest, which is too easy to forget, when just being so happy about being busy and all the wonderful opportunities. Being a professional makeup artist, I sometimes have to poke myself, that this is all real. So many amazing have happened and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to travel to Bali as destination wedding makeup artist and can't wait to work again in Europe and the USA. It's always important to remember how far you have come rather on how far there still is to go. As beauty expert and beauty editor, I have had the chance to work with exciting brands lately and I have many more ideas. Of course there are always new challenges, dreams & goals to achieve, but in the meantime I am very happy to be well on my way. I am trying my best to find the balance, as I think I am a little bit of a workaholic, but heh, back to the topic:
Photo shoots like the recent Hello May Editorial in Issue Five (go and grab your copy now!!!) are just a dream to work on with an incredible team of creatives and just simply amazing, inspiring, funny and lovable people the final images of a shoot like this will always mean a lot to me. The hairstyling & makeup for this was more out there then the usual clean fresh bridal look, and it was exciting to create this wild & powerful look. Also this is one of my favourite and in my opinion the best wedding & lifestyle magazine there is. To see my work in print is a very special moment and makes me warm & fuzzy inside. And then after all that excitement, the behind the scenes video got released and reminded me once more of how much fun we had working on this.
