Lifestyle, etc – Penticton Western News
“Trust your instincts and intuition, follow your passion, go get what you want in life. Just do something new that’s not comfortable – go out, do whatever you want!”
These are the best life lessons that internationally acclaimed makeup artist Heather Nightingale has learned in her 20+ year career.
After studying art at the University of Alberta Arts and Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, Heather transferred her art, skills and knowledge to enhance the natural beauty of the face human, using the skin as a canvas.
“A few years later, I raised my artistic performance by going to Paris to study with Dany Sanz, the world-renowned creator of the Make Up For Ever brand. This is where I bloomed!
When asked what excites her the most about her job, she replied, “I get excited when I get to create and enhance skin and meet the most amazing people. Nothing beats being an artist when your canvas is full of energy and passion.
When it comes to having a good style, Heather thinks the most important aspect is to understand yourself.
“What feels good? What excites you? What makes you feel vibrant and exuberant? »
