Ild like to introduce myself. (I'm the joker above)
My names Suzy, im 21 and from England.
Firstly my fascination for sfx come about from watching alot of holby city with my nan, and just thought that looks cool. Il'd love to learn how to do that! I wondered how the effects are made to look so real, it really intrigued me. I'm not one who's amazing with blood or gore with a real cut or wound, that makes me cringe but I found it facinating looking up what you can do with special effects makeup. I like playing around with different ideas, and trying new things, in a way it's rather therapeutic to me. Something I can really get into, there's so much you can learn and always new products being put on the market, its definitely an exciting career choice.
I studied at college and practiced alot, I came away from sfx for a while and went into beauty working for a counter which was really awesome. I love all types of the industry!
I can honestly say becoming a mother pushed me even harder to pursue what i wanted, i want my son to be proud of how hard I've worked! Im hoping to make a career out of my Makeup Artistry, i always have, its my passion and It's been a long and hard journey to get where I am now, all the bumps and cracks of life that knock you down but you get back up.
Ive heard people say having a career in makeup and having children dosent work, I don't really understand that it's like any career or job you work everything around everything.
Mums and Dads don't give up on what you really enjoy whatever it is! Even when your sleep deprived and falling asleep updating your profiles or sending them emails at 2am because your 2 year old dosent sleep a full night and thinks it's funny to sing everytime he wakes up (this happens alot and yes its highly funny, but I will get him back when he's older and wants that lay in after a night out with the lads, you got another think coming boy.) grab a coffee, cuddle your beautiful child and remember it's all worth it in the end (and you can get him back, only 16 more years ), you're child will be so proud when their grown up that you've worked your a*s of to be where you are!
I'm currently trying to get my business off the ground, run and keep my home clean, keep our shelfs stocked, raise my son, do day courses on the side to keep my skills updated, keep my pages updated and manage to get the time to sit and do some sfx on the side, all whilst my tiny tornado is getting into everything he can and wanting me to dance to every song that comes on the TV or radio (he loves a good tune! Haha) Its hectic but so rewarding but I swear my other half thinks I just sit at home all day and does nothing ha! Yeah right!
I'm not going to just give up on what I love because I'm a mum, and nobody should, but I will say though if you can spend them first couple of years at home, do it its amazing watching a child grow, learn and experience things for the first time. My son's my world, he will always come first. I adore him but I still need to do the things that make me, me.
Every mother does, don't lose yourself in being the perfect mother or father, nobody's perfect but your perfect to your tiny human being! You should never forget that.
Thankyou for reading! I hope you all enjoy my work! feedback or any recommendations for sfx or body art would be gladly appreciated, really enjoy a new challenge!
