So let introduce myself, I”m Joyce and welcome to Curated by Joyce. This is my space where I talk about my passions: beauty, style, tv & film and the arts

Ok, abit about me. I’m trained but unsuccessful actress.I was first bitten by the acting bug at 10 years old when I play Mary in The Christmas story, I enjoyed the rehearsal, learning the silent night in Greek and English; the fitting for costumes everything. I knew then, that’s what I wanted to do with my life. Next I went to study at Guildhall school of Music and Drama, Queen Margaret University College and then I continued my Acting training in LA; where I studied with Howard Fine, Amy Lyndon, Scott Sedita and Tony Beneditti for 3 years. During my time in LA, I opportunity to intern as a Casting Associate- which I totally loved. Honestly,  if I had one do-over; I would train as actor but intern as a Casting Office once a graduated and make my way in the industry.

My love of beauty started with my crazy old sister. At Christmas, she created the amazing eye looks and teamed it with pink or red lipstick. She also looked so cool and very modern. I used to sit and watch get ready for night out. Me and two sisters would look at pictures in Jet and Ebony magazine, my sister would ask the newsagent to import it for us because Pride and Black Magazine didn’t exist at the time. As I grew, I wanted my make up to look like Nia Long, Halle Berry, Naomi Campbell, SWV and later; Lauren Hill. Hence I dedicated my time to search for the perfect dark browny black smokey eye and the perfect nude lip.

So there we have it.  I really looking for to reading comments and engaging will all of you. Welcome to Curated by Joyce. xx
