My name is Amy
I have been a beauty therapist for 9 years.
I love makeup and self care treats.
But I am also relearning how to love myself, as I am with alll of the imperfections.
I have struggled with acne and skin sensitivity for the majority of my life because of hormonal imbalances (PCOS) and dietary sensitivities.
In this industry I have worked in for so many years I have worked with so many gorgeous woman scared shitless to be seen in all of there al natural glory.
But this shit has got to stop.
Makeup is a creative outlet for me to express different aspects of my personality but should never have become something that was a NECESSITY to my life, border line a life or death situation in my self abusive mind.
I recently had an awakening to the fact that the beauty therapy I had been practicing was no longer in alignment with what I believe in and with how I want to show up to a world full of mental health issues, body and self abuse, eating disorders, comparison and the rest. This awakening came when I was encouraged and expected to inform a junior therapist that she MUST wear more makeup and look a certain degree of beautiful to work in the industry that for a while destroyed my idea of beauty leaving me insecure, self abusive and lacking love for the life I am blessed with. Life is way to short lovers.
So here I am. As I am. Let’s redefine this thing us humans call beauty together.
Lots of love
