A Bit About Me

 

I come from a TV & Fashion Make-Up background having trained at the London College of Fashion 20 Years ago now (OMG!!) and diving head first into the whirlwind World that is the Fashion Industry and the Crazy world of Live TV. Since those early Days of instability as a Freelancer I have always worked part-time in Department Stores for the most prestigious Make-Up Artist Brands such as Laura Mercier, Becca, Bobbi Brown and Shu Uemura which have given me technical skills training and also kept me updated with current Make-Up trends and given me a vast knowledge of products of which only the Best are used in my Kit. I now also specialize in Airbrush Make-Up for HD TV & Bridal work having been trained By Temptu as part of the Make-Up Team for Dancing on Ice and have used those skills on shows such as Comic Relief does Fame Academy and Live at the Apollo…

 

Since having my youngest child I am now fully focused on the Bridal side of my business as it allows me to have a work life balance and yet keep my creative side going. Never would I have imagined that Weddings would be such an enjoyable part of what I do but that also it is becoming more and more technical with the savvy brides knowing that airbrush make-up is the way forward if they want flawless looking skin. I love that no two Brides are the same and creating a customized make-up look for a Brides Wedding Day is extremely satisfiying. I have a calming presence as experience has taught me that getting the Look Perfect and within time constraints with a ton of people getting ready is totally doable and doesn’t faze me in the slightest… in fact the buzz of a Wedding Morning is not unlike the buzz I would get from working at a Fashion Show….

And what can beat the moment when a Bride catches the first glimpse of herself in the mirror, when Hair and Make-Up is complete and the Dress is on….there is that little intake of breath when they see themselves for the first time and the smile creeps up on their lips as if to say I am a Princess even if just for Today and I Look and Feel Beautiful.
