Last year I started offering the option to add professional makeup to senior pictures. Having your makeup done before your photoshoot makes all the difference in the images. The makeup creates a flawless finish and boosts your confidence when you see how gorgeous you are! So I figured before you hire her, you might want to get to know my MUA a little bit!
Here’s a lil Q&A with Haley! She’s fantastic!
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION FROM?
A: Many of my inspirations come from artists I come across on the internet, their talent and work ethic help me work towards growing my business.
WHO ARE SOME PEOPLE THAT HAVE INSPIRED YOU TO BE A MUA?
A: One of my family members’ partner had introduced makeup to me at the age of 5, from then on I was completely in love with it. When my family had gotten the internet when I was around the age of 9, I ran into a, now famous youtuber, named Michelle Phan. I watched her religiously for that entire summer.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT MAKE UP?
A: Makeup is more than what society deems it, to me its an actual art, and what people can do with it is so fascinating. That’s why I love makeup.
IF YOU WEREN’T GOING TO BE A MAKEUP ARTIST, WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU DO?
A: I’m a very creative person, so if I wasn’t going to be a makeup artist I’d be a chef. I could use my hand’s and create beautiful products that people would enjoy.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR SIGNATURE LOOK?
A: My signature look, its hard to pinpoint my style, because it’s all over the place. But, I do appreciate natural beauty most of the time, so many girls are beautiful and using a little bit of concealer, blush, mascara, and lipstick can brighten any woman or mans face.
WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT BEAUTY ADVICE THAT YOU CAN GIVE TO WOMEN?
A: The most important advice I can give to any woman or young girl, is to take care of your skin! Makeup will not look good if your skin is terrible. That means from an early age to always use sunscreen, always take your makeup off at night, and lastly find a routine for your skin type that keeps it in balance.
WHAT ARE SOME COMMON BEAUTY MISTAKES THAT WOMEN MAKE?
A: This answer correlates with the last one, woman don’t focus enough on their skin and think makeup will fix it. Makeup is supposed to enhance your features, not hide them.
-Lastly, a complementing blush and lipstick for your skin color.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE MAKEUP PRODUCT?
A: Anything skin care has my attention. I have dry skin, so right now I’m really enjoying Lush’s face mask in “Oatifix.” It’s made with all natural ingredients such as banana, oats, and almonds.I use it once or twice a week and my face always feels like a baby’s bottom.
