2018 favourites and defining moments

I have highlighted my top 2 products and defining moments of 2018. I feel like I have more but I will keep it short and sweet!


Face - Glossier Stretch Concealer

This only came into my life half this year but I'm not sure what I did without it! I use it everyday, concealer and sometimes as all over foundation when I'm lazy. Literally, just stuff my beauty blender into the pot, it blends like a dream, buildable coverage and doesn't cake or dry up on any blemishes. I thought the Makeup Forever HD concealer would change the game but no way!


Skin - The Ordinary, Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Okay not sure what kind of magic is in this bottle but it has changed my skin! It has helped me with my breakouts and blemishes. This was such a random pick up as I heard great things about The Ordinary. I'm really excited to try more of their skincare! I use this as a serum before my moisturiser day and night. Affordable and it works - why isn't there more skincare brands like this?


Defining Moments

This year, I have made a conscious effort to invest into my makeup passion. What did this look like?

  • Designing this website and my logo

  • Regularly updating my Instagram and Facebook page

  • Saying yes to collabs and freelance opportunities

  • This blog!!

I struggled a lot with comparing my service and "brand" with other artists - you know, the whole why isn't my Instagram growing and how do I still only have over 200 followers (really, why though? haha). I realised I genuinely enjoy creating. I found a passion for doing collaborations with other Perth creatives and the joy of when I put the final touches to a makeup and hair service. I also learnt that I shouldn't validate my work based on someone else's opinion or on how much business I am getting.


Its been a whirlwind of trialling, failing, self- pity parties but the show must go on and "Imen you got this!" in the year of Imen Chow Makeup.


I hope 2019 will be just as growing, continually exploring this business, hobby and passion of mine, no matter what it looks like to anyone else. (Maybe I will do another blog on my goals for 2019 too!)
