Beginning her career nearly 19 years ago, Hawa started out as a young person with a very creative gene. It was only after her own hunt for a good hair and makeup artist, did she realise that there really wasn’t many around! And thus, she began her journey…
Fast forward to today, after working relentlessly and training hard to be one of the best makeup artists around, she has carved out a reputation for herself as a well-respected artist with masses of experience. Hawa has regularly painted the faces of a huge clientele across the North West of England as well as, working internationally where time has allowed it. Not only this, Hawa’s has organised and been a part of fashion shows, created editorial content and part in many photoshoots. Hawa has showcased her skills live on stage whilst demonstrating many tutorials and has organised her very own masterclasses around the UK which have been huge successes. She also created the Foundations Team!
Being well-known and established has its perks, but for Hawa, she now wishes to pass on all her skills and knowledge to future professionals. It was Hawa’s life-long dream to be able to have her own studio; but as with everything else in Hawa’s outlook- ‘If we’re doing this; we’re going to be the best!’ She hopes to give the everyday girl the skills to apply makeup like a professional. She also wishes to mould solid, knowledgeable new makeup artists and hair stylists who wish to work in the professional industry. Foundations won’t give you an outline of a wishy-washy course; they hope to teach at a very strong grass roots level. Foundations aim for every single one of their Graduates to leave with a real, applicable knowledge base. All Foundations graduates would become affiliates and Foundations would help to support you along your journey in the industry. Here at Foundations, we also help new businesses with their Marketing as they launch on their latest ventures… With you every step of the way.
Hawa remains a highly demanded makeup artist; continues to work as a hair and makeup artist, as well as running Foundations. Hawa is always looking to improve her skills, be creative with new brands and soon hopes to work on her very own beauty blog.
