My name is Marisa and I love all things beautiful in life: natural and cosmetic.
Growing up I was taught to cherish and care for the skin you were in. 'Cleanse, tone and moisturise' have been part of my daily ritual from an early teen to today and it's not until now, at 30 years young, that I have a true appreciation for skin care and loving the skin you're in (thanks Mum!).
In my early twenties I really discovered my love for makeup. I remember going to buy my first foundation and walking out of the store with the whole kit and caboodle - foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, lipstick, bronzer and brushes! I should have been worried that I'd just spent my whole fortnights pay on makeup but I had no regrets and saw it as a great investment. From that moment on there was no turning back! The girls in store knew me by name and invited me to all their new product launches knowing I was a sucker for the next best thing.
I have dabbled in different jobs, including working with the great team at City Chic, but it wasn't until last year that I decided to turn my love and passion for makeup into a career. I began studying makeup artistry and have a job in the industry to enhance my skills and knowledge.
Today I am proud of my beautiful, well rounded makeup collection and everything I have learnt and I feel privileged to join the City Chic Social Scene as their Beauty Contributor.
You might learn a little, you might learn a lot but I am excited to share my makeup tips, tricks and trends I am loving and can't live without.
You never stop learning and it's never too late to try something new so keep your mind strong and your brow game stronger and join me on my beautiful adventure.
