Art & Life with Brittney Morrison

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brittney Morrison.

Brittney, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I was always the kind of kid growing up that was very curious about makeup. I would pass by someone randomly on the street or in a store who had flawless makeup on and think, “WOW! They have great makeup skills! How did they do that?” Even though I was very interested in makeup, I was super shy to even try to wear it myself. That is until high school, when I went to my first homecoming dance. I remember my Stepmom helping me figure out what kind of look to wear for my outfit. We chose silver eye shadow, pink blush, and clear lip gloss. (Not the best choice but I was only fifteen). This is where my love for makeup happened. From there I quickly became involved in trying out new looks which they were, for the most part, subtle looks.

However, college came and that is where I found my love and obsession for makeup. My photographer friend DaniRae Dunn had asked me to be a model for a photo shoot with a few other girls. I came and had my makeup all done but the others didn’t have theirs done yet so, they all asked if I could help them because they liked the way I did my makeup. From then on, I’ve been loving the field as a makeup artist!

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I feel like everyone has a talent. In fact, I know everyone out there has a hidden talent. Mine is makeup. My art comes in variety of different styles and creations. My creativity with makeup comes in all kinds of looks! For example, I go from a Soft Glow look to creating a look that I have designed myself! What is the message in my art you may ask? The message I am trying to bring is the sense of being able to feel confident in yourself, and show the world how creative you can be! It doesn’t have to be makeup or clothes, but you can find it in other aspects of your life. I know I use to struggle with this a lot growing up, and I still sometimes do to this day. So, I try to find or come up with ideas with makeup to show my creative side and how confident and proud I am with my art.

How do you think about success, as an artist, and what do quality do you feel is most helpful?
As an artist, success to me doesn’t mean how wealthy or famous you become. Instead, success to me means how dedicated and hardworking a person is towards their passion. If a person works aimlessly hard towards their goals and aspirations they have fully succeeded in what they wish to be doing.

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
People are able to see my work at photo-shoots and special events such as Proms and Weddings. If you want to see more of my work, the best way to view them is through my Instagram and Facebook. For both of my accounts, you will find that I post every other day with new looks and inspiration.
