Hi guys! So this is my first post since the relaunch of my website. It was made almost 3 years ago but I just never got round to really using it. I just wanted to write a little introductory post to tell you a bit about myself, how I got into makeup and what to expect from my site.
If you don’t know me, my name is Chelsea Pesticcio and I am a 22 year old freelance makeup artist in Cardiff.
I started getting into makeup when I was young. At the age of 11 to be precise when I began watching YouTube videos. I would log on to youtube as soon as I got home from school and watch different makeup artists giving their tips and tricks and was opened up to a whole different perspective on beauty.
I remember on my 12th birthday I bought my very first MAC lipstick after lusting over one for so long. All these years later and I still have that very same lipstick sat in my collection. I obviously don’t use it anymore because it has defiantlyyy expired but it’s nice to keep for nostalgic reasons.
Fast forward to now. 10 years have passed and I have learned a lot about the makeup industry since then. To this day I still watch videos online and keep up to date with new product releases but I am now able to earn money from doing what I love which is amazing.
I have never had any training. I often get asked how I learned and the truth I just taught myself by watching videos online, buying makeup books, speaking to different artists, asking them questions and a lot of practice! Anyone who has a passion for makeup can become a makeup artist, it just takes time and patience. It won’t happen over night. Try and do makeup on whoever you can. Different ages, skin types, skin colours etc. You can’t practice enough!
So moving on to my website. On here I am planning to post photos of my clients with a description of what products I have used, makeup tutorials, advice, tips and tricks and product reviews.
In all honestly I am just going to wing it and see how it goes and where it takes me. I am going to just be testing things out at first and see what sort of content I enjoy making and finding out what you guys enjoy.
Thanks for reading! I will be posting again shortly.
