We’ve Won An Award! by Elaine Burns
Working in the creative industry is fun, challenging and full of the unexpected. You rarely know what your diary will hold in a few months time, who you’ll be working with and the next brief you’ll be working on. For some this style of working would be too fractured but for many of us we become hooked on the adrenaline of the creative process and working with others to create unique and beautiful images. What makes it extra special is when your work is recognised by others and for this reason I’m proud to be the winning makeup artist for the month of September in the Battle of The Lashes competition.
This competition focuses on eyelash artistry the power of creativity and with previous winners such as UK-based pop art specialist Karla Powell and Scotland’s own Sarah Baldwin, the standards are high. What’s extra special about this is the highlight of a nominated creative charity to draw attention to what others are trying to achieve. The focus of this year’s awards is WonderRoot, a charity uniting artists and communities for positive change. You can find out more at www.wonderroot.org
So thank you to The Battle of the Lashes for recognising my work and if you too are creative and have a real passion for makeup artistry then go for it! Put yourself out there, meet fellow creatives and enjoy the journey.
