People talk of career changes; society at large has lots to say on the subject! And do not get me started on advisers…..

Danielle graduated from Christine Blundell Makeup Academy in August 2017 and started working straight after graduation, first doing a number of wedding make-up jobs and also doing hair & makeup for a Dance company video that same month.

This was a far cry from her caring job of old. Yet she knew this was not her chosen path and after uming and arghing over which makeup academy, Danielle finally chose well and joined ours!

Danielle then started applying to various West end theatre companies and landed a job of a Department Makeup Artist on “The Lion King” musical, under Head of Wigs & Makeup Sara Tyndall. Danielle was doing character Make up for principal and ensemble actors / dancers / singers (face and body painting and straight makeup), hair prep, wig application, wig styling, wig maintenance and quick changes, quick makeup changes, side of stage assistance – makeup application and wardrobe assistance, reading and following a track sheet and assisting in daily and weekly derig / setup duties.

Danielle has in the meantime also started working on “Motown” musical, while continuing her work on “ The Lion King”.

What comes from this description of Danielle’s achievements? It is her determination, hard work and getting out there tirelessly searching for work …
