I began my makeup journey by assisting at weddings whilst living in Australia. Although I was mainly cleaning brushes and calming nerves I just loved the buzz and excitement of getting someone ready for the biggest day of their lives. I knew on my very first wedding that I had found my future career.
Back in the U.K. I began working with Laura Mercier, the pioneer of the ‘flawless face.’ I fell in love with this brand and their message. It was, and continues to be, everything I stand for in makeup: making women look as beautiful as possible while making them look like themselves. More recently I have worked with Dr Hauschka, the premium skincare and makeup brand, creating social media content for their limited edition makeup collections. As someone obsessed with a flawless base, this is a perfect fit for me.
Having been freelance for some time, last year I completed the five day Advanced Bridal Makeup Course at the award-winning Kristina Gasperas Beauty Academy. Kristina continues to be my mentor and inspiration.Whilst training with Kristina, I discovered my love for photography and it’s a joy to see my clients reactions on a trial when I show them how their make up appears through a lens.
I believe I have learnt from the best in the business. This training has enhanced my versatility and confirmed my philosophy that every woman deserves to feel her absolute best.
