Coming from a business world and into makeup has been fantastic training. In my previous career in marketing and later in advertising I was lucky enough to really got under the skin of brands, learn how brands stand out from the crowd and how a brand’s story is its most powerful tool.
The first ten years of my career saw me working for some of the best names in communications including Bloomberg, M&C Saatchi and Publicis (to name but a few) but as I approached thirty I was feeling burnt out. Something was missing. And I couldn’t put my finger on it.
Luckily for me it was my best friend who spotted it and suggested I do a training course in makeup. Almost instantaneously something ignited in me.
The idea to become a business makeup specialist also came from my friends. As word spread that I had retrained in makeup I was suddenly bombarded with questions from friends, many of whom had established careers as solicitors, lawyers and financial consultants…
“Nat, I hear you’re doing makeup now. What would you recommend for me? I don’t really have a clue!”.
The more I spoke to my friends about their makeup for work and their desire to ‘get it right’ the more I realised how powerful the knowledge was that I could impart; my knowledge of business and the buisness world with my knowledge of makeup and branding. And as someone who had been a businesswoman herself I knew instantly what was needed;
Strategic makeup advice…from someone who knows.
"Natalie is highly knowledgeable and the results of her makeup detox, makeup lessons and personal shopping experiences have been transformative for me both personally and professionally."
