I am a passionate fashion and wedding makeup artist with experience of working on high end fashion model shoots in London & Manchester as well as on models in bridal competitions.

It all started at the tender age of 10 when my passion for makeup started. In fact, it was from that age that I knew exactly what I wanted to do in my career – I was so passionate and driven and wanted nothing else!

I naturally left school, at 16 years of age and took 2 qualifications in Makeup Artistry at my local college. At the same time, being so young, I set to work on my mobile makeup business in my local town of Chesterfield, to gain experience and the extra income.

I very quickly became the “go to” person” when it came to wedding & special occasion makeovers and eyebrows!

I then trained at the Delamar Academy in Ealing, London and enrolled on their infamous course;  “The Media and Fashion intensive course” and was trained by some of the top professionals in the industry; including those who have been makeup artists on the X Factor.

Here I learned advanced techniques of makeup application and ended up working with the fashion and media industry in London.

Working with these world renowned makeup artists allowed me to perform makeovers on some of the top professional models who were featured on Mac and Charlotte Tilsbury billboards & other media throughout London.

My makeover pictures were selected out of hundreds for the front page of the Delamar Academy.

Since then it has gone from strength to strength where I solely now do fashion & wedding makeup and simply love what I do.
