Today’s post is all about one of my closest friends, Natalie Keenan. You might have seen me mention her in my Charlotte Tilbury post a couple of months back, you know the one where Charlotte Tilbury said she should come and work for her?! Yep! Although Natalie’s always loved experimenting with her own makeup and trying looks out on her friends, it wasn’t until the Charlotte Tilbury event that she decided to take the step towards making her dream of becoming a professional makeup artist a reality.
As a luxury merchandiser by day, Natalie has the freedom to wear whatever makeup she fancies so you’ll see her sporting a new look on a daily basis. Having graduated from Teesside University with a graphic design degree, Natalie has always had a creative mind so it is no surprise that she is completely self-taught. Over time, Natalie has mastered popular techniques such as contouring as well as having learned the tricks to accomplish the most perfect looks through YouTube tutorials and her own experimentation.
As for her makeup collection, she has one of the biggest I’ve ever seen! With a slight obsession with Charlotte Tilbury, Mac and Urban Decay, you can trust Natalie to use only the best quality products on your face. She’s a natural when it comes to applying makeup and making it last until after dark. A couple of weeks ago me and a few of the girls had a get-together around mine with a takeaway whilst we let Natalie loose on our faces to help build her portfolio up. Creating cheekbones you never knew existed and the most feline flicks you ever did see, Natalie has the ability to transform your face for any occasion.
Natalie has a lot of exciting things to coming up in the next couple of months so keep your eyes peeled – this girl’s going places! For more of Natalie’s work and to book an appointment, head over to her Instagram page.
