Leanne, makeup and brow artist at MNX Pro, takes on our My Belfast challenge.
“I started my journey with the love of makeup, hair and fashion. I was always different, but never quite understood why. But in my early 20’s I found that applying makeup helps me relax and unwind. It’s not like a job for me – I do something I enjoy and will always want to take it to the next level. For me, the sky is the limit.
“Then I found Rachel (she’s the ying to my yang) and MNX Pro – a place where I truly feel comfortable. I have found great friends, gaining some lovely people for clients and generally enjoying making people feel beautiful. MNX Pro offers brows & makeup transformations – and our new venture; MNX Pro’s new & innovative makeup school. I hope this year holds as much enjoyment as last!”
Home will always be Larne, where my family are – because my family is where my heart is. My two beautiful kids that drive me to do better each & every day. I’m very thankful ?
Tell us something your mum doesn’t know about you?
That I am just as good at being a domestic goddess as she is! I also never tell her enough, but she is my rock.
Which building would you most like to be locked in overnight?
Victoria Square definitely! I could pamper myself, kit myself out in the latest clothing, eat drink & watch movies… Perfect!
Zac Efron! Have you seen those eyes & that smile! ?
Describe your perfect day in the city?
Enjoying the sites with my kids catching up with friends… Some very fine dining I’m such a foodie!
What movie most closely resembles your life story and why?
An old one – Crossroads – the 2002 Britney Spears film!
Old friends lose touch with each other, people change, life goes on, but true friends will always find their way back to you & the making of new ones, making new memories & helping you reach future goals together. It’s all about working together not against each other… You know who y’all all! #friends forever ✌
Sum up Belfast in three words?
Friendly, festive & feisty!!
