BIOGRAPHY

I’m a highly experienced and creative freelance makeup artist in London. My work ranges from makeup and body painting through to master classes, teaching and HD brows. My areas of expertise include makeup for TV & film, celebrity makeup, special effects, high fashion and beauty, bridal and body art.

I am friendly, flexible and detail orientated. Having trained and undertaken my specialist degree almost a decade ago, I have the ability and skill to add to the success of any creative team on all nature of projects – delivering a high quality job, on time, every time. Having achieved a PTLLS and A1 Assessors Award, I also lecture, teach and assess students at various private and further education colleges in London. My students develop their skills and confidence whilst completing their qualification before continuing in further learning or getting a job.

I keep my finger on the pulse of new product developments, and have a great knowledge of cosmetics and how to apply them in all types of work. By way of example, I am now a fully qualified HD brow technician.

I am fully mobile and able to travel throughout London, nationally and internationally. My attention to detail means a perfect result every time in all areas from a flawless natural look to full on glamour and across the range of special effects. So if you’re looking for a freelance makeup artist in London, or indeed anywhere else, please feel free to contact me.
