Being a professional makeup artist within ‘beauty’ requires a specific skill set. Working with various photographers over the years I’ve worked as a hair and makeup artist on countless models. Within beauty, professional makeup application, has to be HD perfect and requires technical expertise. An excellent knowledge of professional makeup products, current and historical trends within beauty, knowledge of photographic lighting, and how these products work on camera is essential.

I love working as a hair and makeup artist within ‘fashion.’ I regularly work with photographers and stylists on location. It’s always so much fun working as a professional makeup artist, looking at what’s trending within fashion and makeup, and translating those trends into a beautiful shoot. It’s always so exciting testing new professional makeup products. MAC makeup, and brands such as Illamasqua, Ben Nye and Kryolan, offer a diverse range of professional makeup, ideal for fashion. Credits include working for 12+ UK Model Management, JA.SU.MA womenswear and Urbancode accessories/womenswear as seen on ASOS.
Over the last 20 plus years, I have had the pleasure doing many bridal hair and makeup’s in London and elsewhere. As a mobile hair and makeup artist I have been lucky enough to do bridal hair and makeup at a variety of beautiful venues and stately homes in Wimbledon, London, Surrey, Essex, York and elsewhere. Every bride’s wedding is unique, telling it’s own wonderful story.
