The Face Boss is a newly-opened beauty business that specialises in make-up and is Voice’s Beauty Studio of the Month.

It is the brainchild of young entrepreneurMegan Goodchild, and being only 23-years-old, she has a clear vision of where she wants to take her business.

Her studio officially opened its doors onMonday, May 14 and Voice was invited along to a special guest evening the night before, where clients could have a sneak peak before anyone else.

“It was a natural progression for me to open a studio,” Megan tells Voice.

“I’ve been a freelance make-up artist for the last three years, being mobile and working from the converted study of my family home. I started my own business after studying makeup and theatrical makeup.

“I’ve always been an artistic person, and I originally wanted to work in film and TV doing special effects makeup, but it wasn’t until I started working for MAC Cosmetics in Cardiff that I really got my passion for the beauty side of the artform.

“I’m very grateful for all the training and opportunities I experienced during my time with MAC. I was lucky enough to be a part of their National Body Painting team and got to take part in national events around the UK.

“Once I’d learned a new technique at MAC I’d practice it either on myself or on my friends, then they’d recommend me to their friends and so on, which kick-started my passion for all things to do with make-up.

“I enjoy helping people look the best they can be. This is truly rewarding as most people underestimate the power of make-up and how it gives you confidence and makes you feel amazing about your appearance.

“Although make-up can be empowering, it is also a very personal thing and I love how clients let me enter their lives to build their trust by allowing me to do their make-up. I get to meet so many lovely and interesting people.

“It gives me such satisfaction to spend precious moments with people during some of the most amazing or important days of their lives, whether it’s their wedding, graduation, prom, ball, interview, first date or first modelling shoot. I even get people leave my studio and head straight for the airport to start their holiday in style!

“My favourite time of the year has to be Hallowe’en. I qualified in special effects, face and body painting, so this time of year I get to explore another passion and really go to town in the creative department.

“I appreciate how lucky I am to have a career in doing something that I love, which is why I have so much energy and drive to keep exploring new ideas.

“Demand for my services is increasing all the time, which fills me with excitement about where this journey is going to take me next.

“The launch of my own 100% mink lashes has been so rewarding, being involved throughout the whole process to finally getting my product on the shelves. I totally believe they are great quality and a group of my closest and dearest friends (and harshest critics!) have been trialling them out to give them their stamp of approval that they meet my high

“I love helping anyone with their day-to-day make-up concerns and needs, from skincare to what brands to use and how to apply the products, no matter their age. I have clients ranging from early teens up to senior citizens in their 80s and 90s.

“You’ll find some of my amazing clients on my website and socials.”
