This is Me ………
My career as a Makeup Artist started years ago when I worked with a Photographer in his studio, applying makeup and styling his Clients hair ready for their portrait photography session. I helped to style the shoot too adding accessories, jewellery etc.
The transformation fascinated me and makeup became my passion, seeing the smiles on the faces of my own Clients after I had applied their makeup so they looked the absolute best version of themselves.
I went on to help out at a Makeup Workshop for a women’s cancer charity and it was then I realised the true ‘power of makeup’, seeing how much happier and uplifted the ladies were at the end of the class.
Meeting some models and doing their makeup for a Wedding Fashion show is what lead me to doing Bridal Makeup. I feel it is an honour to be part of a Bride’s special day and making her look her most beautiful for one of the most important days of her life, and of course for those ‘forever’ photographs. Mum’s are just as special too as are the Bridesmaids who share the day.
I now hold my own Makeup Masterclasses and give personal makeup lessons, completely bespoke to the individual, taking into consideration their own colouring, style, and how much makeup they like to wear. Experimenting with makeup can be fun and the results are often surprising in a good way ! I love sharing my passion by teaching others and helping people to ‘look good, feel good’.
Working in the studio with Photographers is still close to my heart, watching the Client’s confidence grow as the photography session continues and seeing the final images is so satisfying. I love getting creative as well and applying makeup etc. to suit the theme of the shoot.
This is why I love what I do, and do what I love !
