My passion sparked a few years ago when I was given a gift voucher from my husband and decided to use it to get a makeup lesson at Napoleon. Here I met a very inspiring and talented member of the Napoleon Perdis Team, Rajja. I spent just 90 minutes with him and knew then that I wanted to translate everything he taught me into something beautiful, pure and magical for other women to experience.
After studying at the University of Cape Town, South Africa; having a successful career in IT Corporate Sales and Management in Australia and becoming a stay at home mum, I decided to follow my dream to do something creative in my life. This dream became a reality when I completed my studies at the Napoleon Perdis Makeup Academy and I received my certificate in Fashion, Glamour & Bridal Makeup Artistry.
In addition to this, I have spent several years in many one on one private lessons with Rajja; including other various accredited makeup artists in the Napoleon Perdis team. In June 2013 and March 2014, I had the privilege of meeting the man himself, Napoleon Perdis and attended his exclusive Master class. The experience was exhilarating and inspirational as we had the opportunity to translate his special tricks of the trade onto our own faces and learnt how to take current trends and make them into wearable everyday looks for woman of all ages and skin types. In November 2013, I met the amazingly talented Amber D, Senior Artist at MAC and attended her Bridal Master class where we learnt current techniques to create modern flawless Bridal Beauty looks for both the Bride and Mother of the Bride.
I launched my own business MAKEUP BY LEE-ANNE in 2013, which allows me on a daily basis to express my passion and love for the art of makeup. In December 2015, I became an Independent Consultant for Arbonne as I recognized the need for pure, safe and beneficial skincare products to compliment my existing range and the opportunity to offer my clients a complete solution.
I believe in ongoing learning of fresh new ideas and value the importance to keep up to date with the latest trends and technology. I love a challenge and continue to experiment with new colours and techniques.
Thank you to all my family, friends, trainers and business partners who have believed in me. I couldn’t have got this far and be living my dream without your ongoing love and support.
