My muse Noah John

I am a lot of things. I am a make-up artist, a marketer, a graphic artist, an event manager, a cook, a housekeeper, and a wife, but first and foremost I am a mum, and the inspiration behind everything I do is my 16 month old angel Noah John.


He doesn't care if I am not wearing makeup or having a bad hair day, if I haven't exercised for a month or if I live in the same maxi dress every summer for 10 years. He loves me unconditionally and I love him unconditionally back. He is the motivation behind everything I do and he is the reason Makeup by Megan came to be.

You see I was not at all maternal before having Noah. I would actually go as far to say that I didn't really like children. But my husband loves them and Noah came about after being advised by a doctor that due to a medical condition, we should start trying sooner rather than later. And so we began. After surgery, 12 months of trying and a successful IVF cycle Noah was born 2 years later, and my life changed forever. I was not scared of labour during my pregnancy, but I was terrified of how I would look after the small alien like creature growing inside me. But Noah has made it simple for me, and the biggest challenge and most terrifying experience of my life has left me fulfilled in a way I never dreamt possible. It has left me with a renewed confidence in myself that I can achieve anything I put my mind to, and it is with this new found confidence that I am pursuing the career I have always dreamt about as a makeup artist.

Thank-you Noah. You are the butter to my bread and the breath to my life. I love you.
