Story

ABOUT ME

I’m an entrepreneur, author, makeup artist & unwavering positivist dedicated to helping you do and achieve all the things you want. As a London girl who battled with mental health and addiction in her early 20s, I’m proud to have come out smiling the other side and able to share my story to support others with their mental health and self-confidence.

I Am Curious

Ever since I was a little girl I have been fascinated by the way I could use creativity to challenge and change perspective – this isn’t exactly how my 10 year old self would have described it of course, but this is exactly what it was – and I continued to challenge perspectives throughout school and University with art, design, and performance.
 
I got hooked on the power of transformation very early on which led me to my career in hair and makeup artistry and then on to create my agencies.
 
While my team continues to spread the joy of creative transformations through CJC and Glitter & Glo, I felt compelled to dig deeper and create longer-lasting transformations that come from the inside, not the outside.
 
I have always been asking questions (perhaps too many for my own good!) and I have never really stopped questioning why things are the way they are, why myself and others are the way that we are, and what motivates us all to do what we do?

We experience so many different things over the course of our lives and it fascinates me how our experiences shape who we are, and who we become.

I Believe

Each of us already has the skills and ability to live our happiest and most purposeful life, yet we get distracted, turn to quick-fix solutions, or end up being held prisoner by others’ ideals and standards.

Life happens, things veer us off course. Sometimes we are able to get back on track, but sometimes we are unaware; we fail to stop, and we fail to address the issues that we are facing.

Unaddressed these issues can send us beating down the wrong path, in the shadow of someone else’s journey, lacking in confidence and self-assurance to get back to our own path – I know as I’ve been there!

Through both makeup artistry and transformative coaching work, I have learned a lot, but one of my biggest takeaways is:

True confidence and happiness comes only from the inside, not what you put on the outside.

I Know

Through working with people both in the makeup chair and away from it, there are core elements that form the foundations for your self-confidence.

These elements are your self-image, your environment, your habits, and your routine.

Each of these are influenced by each other and must be addressed in order for you to have the confidence to not only do and achieve all that you want to in life, but have all the fun while you’re at it – Because if you’re not having fun then what’s the point?

Society encourages us to find a lane and stick to it, whether that’s in our careers, our peer groups, our relationships etc. and while that can seem “safer” by doing so we can cut ourselves off from amazing opportunities and experiences… so I say to hell with that!

I’ve certainly not been one to pick a lane and stick to it.

I am passionate about many things: creativity, entrepreneurship, writing, makeup artistry, bodybuilding, psychology, and spirituality, to name a few.

And while these may seem unconnected, they are very much intertwined.

The skills and knowledge I gain by pursuing my passion in one area is easily transferrable to another. It’s what keeps me constantly learning and growing.

It’s your engagement with all that you are passionate about, your level of self-awareness, and your ability to apply the lessons that you learn each day in one area of your life to others that will give you access to a steady stream of fresh opportunities and get the most out of yourself and your journey on this rock.

You’ve only got one life, the only way to live it is your way, and by your own design.

Love, Camilla xx
