I have learned through my many years in the industry and I'm happy to share them with my lovely bridal clients.
I like to build a rapport with clients and together we can create the perfect dream look. I am very committed to my clients and love to help out in whatever way I can to make sure that their dream day works out perfectly.
I created the Elite Pro Team so we can work in tandem for larger group bookings or for when I may not be available. All the Artists are hand-picked and they all share my passion for hair & makeup and I’m very proud of each and every one of them. I can personally guarantee their skill level and their impressive portfolio and client list.
I created My Makeup Artist & Beauty with the main aim to beautify and to maximise confidence in women. Makeup should be about enhancing your own natural beauty not masking it. I understand that clients want to look like themselves but on a really good day!
My career started over a decade ago starting out as a young enthusiastic artist and I’m lucky to say that the enthusiasm and drive has never left and I simply adore my job. I have always been creative and enjoyed the arts & fashion. As a child I longed to be a Fashion house designer. I created inspirational designs and beautiful illustrations going on to achieve a upper second class honours in Fine Arts (BA Hons). I always loved to sketch faces and portraits; really learning to study face shapes and contours.
Leaving University, I worked as a Buyers Assistant for a top high-street fashion brand. During which I helped organise brand photoshoots. It was on my very first shoot that the penny actually dropped! I met the Makeup Artist and couldn’t believe that someone could actually paint faces for a living! From here I retrained, I wanted to be the best I could be; as I knew how demanding and competitive the industry was. I worked hard to build my portfolio and skill set and had my big break working with Warner Music on a music promo almost on completion of my makeup & hair studies. I never looked back, I met the right people and worked to the best of my ability. I was always kind, polite, organised, courteous and very hard working. My reputation began to grow in the industry and it wasn’t long before I was offer celebrity shoots and inundated with fashion clients.
I earned my stripes as an Assistant for top agencies; CLM, Streeters and Premier. This gave me a real grounding, I began to learn more about the industry, how it works, approaching clients and above all ‘Artist Etiquette’. I am eternally grateful to the Artists who took me under their wing, their expert skills, insider tips really helped me to develop my craft.
I have always combined my love of the fashion industry with the bridal industry, its important as an artist to stay current and aware of beauty trends. Brides want to feel fresh, modern and on trend even if they would like a traditional edge. Understanding trends and adopting them for bridal clients has always been key! I love to make all my clients feel like they have had their own celebrity makeover. I use all the hints, tips and tricks
