(The Makeup Journey.)


I found an amazing makeup mentor, trainer and guru in the shape of David Horne (House of Glam Dolls)  and the rest as they say is history. 


I have been fortunate to learn from and with many inspirational artists including influencer Lipstick Nick, Danessa Myricks; an amazing force in make up and especially in make up for skin of colour; and Karla Powell to name a few. I think 99% of my training has been undertaken in London, somewhere. 


I believe in revealing beauty from within and enjoy working with clients of all ages and from all backgrounds. 

I use high end cosmetics, I believe that if you are going to the expense of having your make up applied it should be the very best and not something that is readily available on the high street. 


I use brands such as Natasha Danona, Tom Ford, Giorgio Armani Beauty, Cozette, Hourglass, Danessa Myricks, Korean Beauty skin remedies, Anastasia Beverley Hills, Burberry, etc alongside more mainstream cosmetic brands such as MAC, Smashbox, Urban Decay, Mehron, Too Faced, Nyx, Fenty Beauty, PLouise, Jeffree Star, etc.


All my make up looks are applied to a photographic standard. That means there is no flashback and it is extremely long lasting.

I use strip lashes from companies such as Ardell, Tatti Lashes, Doll Beauty Lashes, etc as well as those sourced direct from Japan or Korea.


The journey continued in August 2018 with more formal Airbrush make up training to compliment the editorial airbrush training that I have already undertaken. This is the perfect silicon based foundation, ideal for weddings, editorial make up, festival or body looks or for those with skin blemishes. Further editorial and avant grade training has been undertaken in mediums including faceprint, glitter, etc.


I also attended in person The Plouise Academy in Manchester. Here I undertook several days of intense, one to one training in full glam makeup. I was lucky to work with some of the main Louise artists on some very well known models.


I have attended London Fashion Week three times. I have been fortunate that many projects involving makeup I have undertaken have been published. In 2019 I was published in UK Vogue having undertaken makeup on Kiera Chaplin. 


As the story continues, I am involved in wedding makeup, photo shoots, creative work, commercial makeup commissions and makeup for special occasions.


(The beauty Journey.)


I am fully trained in a variety of beauty therapies that I feel compliment make up and styling. This includes brow bar work; eyelash tinting, shaping and waxing, threading of the face and body, facial and body waxing, eyelash tinting and eye lash lifting. **I ADORE eye lash lifts; they are such a beautiful compliment to the eye. 


I am a member of The Guild of Beauty Therapists.
