Dream comes true for Heather

Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - HERALD & POST -

A SELF-TAUGHT make-up artist has proved you achieve your dream while work­ing here on Teesside.

Heather Searle, from Tollesby, runs her own busi­ness in cen­tral Mid­dles­brough, prov­ing she can make it big as a make-up artist with­out hav­ing to up­root.

The 26-year-old now works up to 100 wed­dings per year as well as run­ning her sa­lon, Heather Fran- cessca Pro Makeup Artist and Stu­dio (HFS Make Up), six days a week.

Heather said: “I’ve done make-up for com­ing up to 10 years now and from leav­ing school at 16 I de­cided that make-up was what I wanted to do.

She started work­ing at Smash Box then be­came an ac­count man­ager role at Har­vey Ni­chols in Leeds. Af­ter four and a half years, she de­cided it was time to move home and re-eval­u­ate. Three years later, af­ter a lot of hard work as a free­lance make-up artist, Heather is the proud owner of her stu­dio and still finds time to do wed­ding make up.

HFS Make Up, in the Forbes Build­ing, now em­ploys two staff. It of­fers one-to-one make up tu­to­ri­als for in­di­vid­u­als or pairs, and is about to start group ses­sions ideal for hen par­ties.
