Hi, My Name is Charlie McGuire and I am a 19 year old Makeup Artist from Glasgow, Scotland. I first started my makeup career back in 2014 where I started experimenting and being creative with makeup as a way to express myself, by the age of 15 my love and fascination for makeup only grew and I dedicated myself on building my kit and clientele.
By 16 I applied for a Beauty Therapy and Makeup Course and got my first job in a Salon working as a freelance makeup artist. It was this year I received my first makeup award:
At 17 I also started working in a Makeup Academy, teaching aspiring makeup artists new skills and helping men and woman who would like to improve their own makeup routine.
At 17 I also went onto my HNC in Fashion Makeup whilst working freelance and teaching. I went onto winning another two awards:
- Regional 1st Place Decades makeup (1920's)
- National 2nd Place Team Bridal
In 2018 I moved onto my HND in Makeup Artistry where I learned about all things special effects, This really allowed me to push myself, test my skills and try new things.
