Freelance Makeup Artist & Stylist - London and the South of England (Surrey & Hampshire)
I am a Graduate of the Academy of Freelance Makeup (AOFM) in London, and qualified in cosmetic makeup in 2009 (cosmetic, fashion/editorial, bridal). As well as AOFM, I achieved my qualifications with leading establishments such as the London School of Beauty, The London Academy of Media, Film & TV and Airbase Makeup, and have attended master classes and independent training days with MAC and other professional makeup companies.
I have full kit to cover all ethnicities, using professional makeup products including MAC, Mehron, BenNye, Bobbi Brown, YSL, Max Factor, Clinique, No7 and NARS. I can also airbrush High Definition (HD) makeup, which is essential for bridal work, film and TV.
I have very high standards and am extremely professional, all vital to my job, but importantly I have a great sense of humour and have the ability to relax my clients, making them feel at ease no matter what the situation. I am also fully experienced in compiling a crew for a film or shoot and running the day from start to finish – production, and have also co-produced my own short films. Competent in leading a team of artists or happy to work alone, and I bring a confident and positive attitude, which makes the day much more fun! I am reliable, dedicated, punctual and hardworking and you definitely want me to deliver what you need.
My work gives me the opportunity to express and show my creative side and fun personality, and to do a job that I love.
I really have had some of the most amazing (and crazy) experiences so I decided to write a blog to share some of my knowledge, and to provide reviews on some of the fabulous makeup, designers, companies and beauty products that I use and work with as part of my job.
