About ME

Iā€™m Stacey a 25 year old Adventure Loving Makeup Artist from Christchurch New Zealand. I created my blog Originally called Painted Lips in December 2013, after feeling there was a gap in the market for honest feedback online, especially when it came to the Beauty & Fashion Industries. After 4 or so years of hard work, I now have an Organic International audience of over 30k followers across my social media platforms.

I was brought up surrounded by Fashion & Beauty, this is what led me to take on the career as a Makeup Artist over 8 years ago at the age of 16 . I absolutely love being a Makeup Artist and getting to work with so many incredible people and companies. During my career I have worked for brands such as Chanel, Smashbox Cosmetics and MAC Cosmetics. I am now self employed as a Blogger and am also of course running my own business as a Freelance Makeup Artist with 3 assisting staff. Although I am based in Christchurch, you will often find me all over New Zealand and afar working on Weddings and other fun projects. 

I hope that my love and passion for life in general and of course the creative industry I work within, comes of some help to you as you browse through my posts.
