As I mentioned in my previous post I have so many adventures with MakeUp Me and my family coming up I might need to go into hiding at the end. No I can't because adventures is what makes life living and doing makeup is a huge part of my adventures and it is worth every moment of exhausting, but, very much fun time.
Just as 2020 started to approach I had some super exciting news.
My brother asked his long term girlfriend to marry him. The family is wrapped to have her officially part of our family. Upon the news he announces they have chosen to be married in Vanuatu. I was so excited to hear of this then thought oh no can he be so kind to put it off for a year and not get married in 2020 as myself, my Aunt and my kids are all off to LA for a week. I wasn't the only one that requested that a few of his friends also did too. Obviously we all want to head over and join in the celebrations.
My brother and his Fiance decided they couldn't wait 2 years to be married, fair enough it is a long time to wait. So the date has been set for 31st January 2020 with the location still Vanuatu. So the decision was made it wasn't looking good although my bother said he pay for me to attend and so did my Dad, I took my dad up on the offer and I will be leaving the kids at home. My gift to my brother is me doing the wedding party makeup.
So MakeUp Me is off to Vanuatu for new years eve and some adventures. I can't wait to do my first overseas job even if its for a relative. They asked me instead of anyone else not even the resorts makeup artist. I can not wait to work with the bride to be and plan her entire look as well as the bridesmaids.
Makeup for an overseas trip is going to take plenty of organising, thought and considerations of the environment we are heading too. It is wet season and this means high temps and high humidity. Big challenges thatch for sure. Along with kit travel and packing making sure nothing is lost or broken and fingers are crossed that the resorts power supply can handle my heat tools. I have looked it up their sockets are the same as Australia's which should mean my heat tools will work. My hairdryer is not friends of the states as discovered on my cruise adventure that is American owned.
The other fantastic news is that The International Bikini Model Search is coming to Australia. Not only isit coming to Australia but its coming to my backyard right here in Newcastle. This means MakeUp Me will be rubbing shoulders with some amazing talent and performing makeup on some amazing well established models with the potential of some serious publication opportunities. January is going to be one awesome start to 2021 just like my January has this year.
In the lead up to The IBMS I will be collaborating with Novacapture and their amazing upcoming photographers who are going to be bringing up their photography skills. Over the year I will be on set of some bikini, bouduaire and portrait shoots with local talent and agency represented. Look out for these images as the year progresses.
Amongst all this I will be taking a week holiday with my sons to adventure overseas for our first trip. We are all so excited to be going on this adventure and can't wait will October be here already?
I will be turning 40 this year and although I rather still be young I can look back at the last 10 years and feel I have achieved enough, seen a lot and most importantly grown as a person as an artist, and a mother.
I can't wait to continue to share my adventures with you and all the makeup I get to do. If you wish to be apart of any adventure I have going on so far this year drop me a message and I can tell you how to get on board.
MakeUp Me love to everyone.
