A little of me
My birth was a real struggle. I was born on an afternoon in October, suffering from advanced cyanosis, looking blue, I couldn’t breathe… the whole medical team trying desperately to keep that little being alive… seconds ticking by… a lot of commotion all around him… a mother trying to understand what’s going on… more seconds going by… a heavy silence… rising tension… and then finally, a first cry… a victory cry, marking the beginning of a new life.
Life really is a delicate thing… We should enjoy life every day like a gift. Do yourself a favour, don’t put off living the life you dream of, forget about all those excuses for not daring to… I try to follow that way, with passion and optimism. It’s not always easy, but I try…
I defended my thesis for my doctor’s degree in pharmacy, specialised in cosmetology, at the faculty of pharmacy at Paris Descartes University in France, one day on the 11th of September. That was several years after that one terrible 11th of September, but I always saw it as a sign, marking the passing of an age and the beginning of a new life…
An age shaped by all sorts of experiences, enriching experiences and oftentimes experiences that had nothing to do with cosmetology at all… but they were always fascinating. Courses in facial massage, communication, marketing… all to quench that thirst for knowledge.
I soon started up a private practice in custom-made cosmetics formulation, which encouraged me to launch my own brand of cosmetics.
And indeed, after several years of being a freelance formulator, of mulling it over, of all kinds of arguments with marketing teams willing to sell anything… the time had come for me to turn one of my dreams into reality: creating my own brand of cosmetics. I hope it can finally be officially launched a few months from now.
That was also my opportunity to modestly start this blog to talk about cosmetics in general, to have an objective look at all the brands, and most of all, to help you with my professional experience, in order to guide you, answer your questions and tell you the secrets and beauty tips that I learned during my career as a professional cosmetist.
Thus, the blog “www.thecosmetist.com” was born…
So if you think that sounds good, and if you don’t mind a little humour, join us! I hope you’ll feel at home here!
