Sharon Mason

Makeup, beauty and High Definition Brows specialist

Up until 2011 I had lived in Birkenshaw my whole life.  My parents still live here so I’ve never lost that connection. For many years I worked in marketing and event management but following job cuts I decided to re-train.  I had always loved having treatments myself and had often been the make up artist for friends’ weddings and big events so going professional seemed a logical step.

My favourite treatment

I don’t have just the one! I love the transformative effect of make up.  Even a little can make a huge difference. Same with brows, a good brow treatment has been likened to a mini facelift!  I also love my Katherine Daniels facials, you can get maximum results without taking drastic measures plus facials are very relaxing so it’s definitely quality ‘me-time’.

Pet hate

When you get beauty therapists who say they are qualified make up artists when in reality they’ve done a few looks as part of their beauty course or they’ve done a quick course with a make up brand.  A qualified make up artist has spent a great deal of time and money achieving a qualification that is infinitely more detailed, and that in the end, will better serve the customer.

Last word

I enjoy the variety of the treatments and love that no two days are the same.  One day I can be working as make up artist in a freezing location (who said it was glamorous?) the next I can be waxing legs or performing a facial.  I also love my customers, and I look forward to meeting and getting to know new customers.
