Welcome to the new and improved The Glamorama Blog!
I have made a big leap to completely overhaul and redesign my old blog. It served me well, but I am excited to use a new format, which will hopefully be more interactive and fun. I love chatting about makeup and beauty, and I know you guys do too, so let's have some fun!
For those of you who don't know me, my name is Vicky King and I am a mobile makeup artist based in Liverpool, UK. I have been a professional makeup artist since 2003, and I founded my business, Glamorama Makeup, in 2011 after having my amazing son. I mainly specialise in wedding makeup and hair styling in Liverpool, Wirral, Cheshire, and throughout the North West. I am also one of the founding experts for The Liverpool Wedding Blog, a great resource for couples planning their weddings in the Liverpool area.
I have been obsessed with makeup since I was a tiny little girl. I was fortunate enough to have an incredibly glamorous Grandma who let me play and experiment with her huge collection of cosmetics. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't be loving life as a makeup artist today! I practiced my talent on a Brooke Shields styling head (which shows how old I am haha!) and many unsuspecting Barbies who received makeovers with pens, paints, and who knows what else.
My personal beauty philosophy is that a when a woman chooses to be made up, she should look and feel like the most glamorous version of herself.
As a mother and business woman, I am firmly based in reality, and I know that we can't be glammed up 24/7, and we shouldn't be expected to. I am currently writing this in old jeans, jumper, and barely any makeup. My hair is in desperate need of a wash and blow too haha! I am a true believer in self-care, quite often women do not make the time to do the little things that lift us physically, emotionally, and mentally. Beauty can be a big part of that for some women. I certainly feel better and more confident when my hair is behaving, my skin looks good, and I have a killer lipstick on!
I want to use this blog as a way to give you ideas on how to look good, feel good, and just have fun and enjoy beautifying yourself! I am going to share my expertise with you, my many years of playing with makeup, hair, and skincare has given me knowledge that I want to sprinkle around like glitter!
I want to interact with you and communicate about what is important in your life, what makes you smile.
Over the next few days, I will be re-posting some of my most popular articles from the previous blog. I will be updating them with new, up to date information, so be sure to have a read! Then I will be probably writing 1 -2 articles a week, in addition to my Beauty Expert duties on The Liverpool Wedding Blog. Please let me know if you have any topics you would like me to cover! You can email me, email@example.com, follow me on Instagram/Twitter @glamoramamakeup and Facebook Glamorama Makeup.
Thank you for reading, and I look forward to hearing from you! Be sure to check out The Liverpool Wedding Blog as well for lots of wedding planning advice in the Merseyside area.
Until next time!
