ABOUT

My journey into professional makeup started at Chelsea College, where I studied interior design. Although not a direct route into makeup artistry, my passion and understanding for the importance of great design and excellent attention to detail formed a foundation for my everyday work. Just as beautiful interiors make us feel comforted, content and at ease, great makeup can make us feel our best selves, being able to put our best foot forwards with confidence and self belief. Makeup isn’t all about looks, it’s about how it makes us feel. 

After graduating in interior design, I went on to study Fashion and Editorial Makeup at The London College of Fashion. Here my passion for makeup artistry was encouraged, and for me my career path was confirmed. I quickly fell in love with the practice. The endless possibilities and transformations really grabbed me, and I never looked back. 

Today working as a professional makeup artist is incredibly fulfilling, allowing me to live my passion each and every day. I am passionate about making people not only look but feel beautiful and confident for any occasion. I provide makeup artistry for wedding days and editorial shoots, as well as makeup lessons. I pride myself in paying great attention to detail, taking into account the unique brief, but also each individual's bone structure and colouring, to make them feel like the best possible version of themselves, rather than making them look like someone else. 

Makeup is such a personal thing, which is why alongside using my professional skills to create the best look possible, I also incorporate each individuals unique style and personality. 

I’m based in London, but I work all over the globe. My work has taken me to weddings and editorial shoots all over the UK, and overseas too! I love the diversity that my work brings, and look forward to each and every day. 

I welcome all enquiries, with no job being too big or small! If you would like to find out more about my work, including bridal makeup, special occasion makeup, editorial and makeup lessons take a look at my services page, or see my portfolio for some examples of my work.
