‘The best part of my job is no two days are the same’ says Michelle ‘I love that – one day I could be in some beautiful Irish Castle looking after wedding makeup, the next day in a studio doing a photo shoot and the day after that calling to someone’s house for a private lesson or makeover. Early call times and long days are part of the job and I wouldn’t have it any other way – I’m so lucky to be able to say I genuinely love my job!’
