On your wedding day, you should be yourself at your most beautiful..
Apply makeup on a woman and she looks great for a day; teach a woman how to apply makeup and she looks great for a lifetime..
-Redcliffe Style (Style & Beauty blogger)
My fascination with make-up started at a young age experimenting on obliging younger members of my family. On leaving school I started out in the big wide world at Debenhams working on their counter for younger customers on a budget.
It was only in 2006 that make-up featured more strongly in my life when I started working for Virgin Vie as a consultant. The more parties I did, the more faces I transformed and I found that I had a real talent for make-up application.
I have since completed a Diploma in Advanced make-up and have been a self-employed make-up artist since 2007. I have kept up to date with current make-up trends and have also completed other professional courses over the years. I am passionate about what I do and listen to what my clients tell me about how they want to look. I have made many brides more beautiful, seen my models strutting their stuff on the catwalk and seen the look of pure delight on lots of faces, young and old. I love bringing out the natural beauty of my subjects using fantastic products from only well known companies.
I have worked with National magazines such as Take A Break, Real People and Femail from the Daily Mail. I also demonstrate 'makeup behind the lens' for local photographic groups and annually present at Bournemouth School for Girls, chatting to the pupils about careers in the Makeup Industry. Students from Bournemouth University employ me for their end of year projects and exam pieces.
For the last couple of years, I am proud to have been able to volunteer at my local Cancer Care Unit at Poole Hospital. The charity is called 'Look Good...Feel Better' and is the Beauty Industries charity. By running workshops, we help women manage the visible side efffects of cancer treatments.
