Hello and welcome to my make-up world...

I bring an enormous passion and a keen eye for detail to the make-up chair, creating a completely bespoke look and a luxury experience for the client; throughout all areas of the Make-up Industry. I am a self-confessed perfectionist!

After working for Warwickshire police for 7 years I decided to take the giant leap and trained in Theatrical and Media Make-up and Hair Styling (Production Arts) in 2013, where I achieved a BTEC Level 3 Diploma to Distinction* level, enabling me to follow my dreams of becoming a freelance make-up artist.

I am based in the heart of England, in the Midlands; Warwickshire to be exact. I will happily travel further afield, both nationally and internationally upon request.

Between 2013/2014 I undertook a number of independent courses, including one-to-one Editorial make-up tuition with Nicci Jackson, celebrity Make-up Artist at her London MUSE Make-up Academy, an intensive Bridal hair styling course awarded by The Guild of Beauty Therapists, and a certificate in Airbase High Definition Airbrush Make-up, where I am fully appointed in the theory and practical application.

Wanting to further my skill-set, I then went onto train with High Definition Beauty (formally known as HD Brows) at their flagship training academy in Milton Keynes and I am now an Official HD Brows Stylist. Furthermore, I am also a trained Nouveau Lashes extensions technician.

I am proud to say that I have won numerous awards with my make-up skills including:

1st place in 'The Art of Make-up' Student Category - Olympia Beauty - Kensington London 2013

2nd place in the 'Make-up Competition' - Midlands Fashion Awards- Birmingham 2014

2nd place in 'The International Make-up Championships' representing Great Britain - Beauty Dusseldorf Germany 2014

3rd place in 'The Art of Make-up' Professional Category - Olympia Beauty- Kensington London 2014

2nd place in 'The Art of Make-up' Professional Category - Olympia Beauty - Kensington London 2015

I have had the opportunity and honour to meet, work alongside and assist Industry experts, including Nicci Jackson, Celebrity Make-up Artist, Julia Townend, Makeup/Body Artist, Luke Stephens, Make-up Artist and Sam & Nic Chapman (Pixiwoo). I was also thrilled to work back-stage as part of the 'Emerging Trends' Make-up team at London Fashion Week in 2014.

I specialise in Bridal and Occasion make-up, but am available for work in all areas of the Make-up Industry including:

  • Beauty
