About Me

I first started my career at Greenwoods health spa and at Clinique, learning about the skin and understanding the importance of skincare and I class myself as an expert in this area. My vigorous skincare training includes Clinique, Decleor and Elemis. This has been so valuable for me as a Makeup Artist.  I advise my clients how to start caring for their skin from the moment they secure me for their wedding day. This can be up to a year in advance. I also spend time preparing their skin, on the wedding morning, using the most wonderful products, prior to the makeup application.

I studied Beauty and Makeup at Colchester and qualified as a Professional Makeup Artist Level 3.  Due to the high standard of my work, I got the opportunity to work for the BBC National Lottery, gaining experience and knowledge of makeup behind the Camera

I advanced my training at MINK London Makeup School and continue to stay on trend by attending numerous Master-classes every year.

I was the Head Makeup Artist of the Heart Essex Wedding Show in Brentwood for 6 years.  I was then approached by the Director of the show who asked me to run a team out in Cannes Film Festival last year. The team was carefully selected by myself incorporating some of the finest hair and makeup artists from Essex.   I had to ensure everyone was punctual, dressed immaculately and worked professionally, efficiently and with discretion.

Last year I became a Finalist for the Essex Wedding Awards for Makeup Artist of the Year and I have also just learned that I have just become a Finalist for Makeup Artist of the Year 2021 for The Wedding Industry Awards. Watch this space for any updates...
