I have been practicing makeup for over 6 years now, and it still continues to amaze me! My career started at one of the worlds top makeup artistry brands M.A.C Cosmetics and after 2 years with M.A.C I went on to work at the prestigious brand, Christian Dior where my passion for all things couture only grew stronger. I have recently added hair styling to my skill set after intense training with Alex at Make Me Sparkle in Hythe, she has taught me everything I need to know about Bridal and Editorial hair styling so I can tick all of the boxes for shoots and weddings or just to help you feel a little bit more fabulous for a girls night out or a day at the races.
“Happiness is the secret to all beauty. There is no beauty without happiness.”
LOVE WHAT YOU DO. DO WHAT YOU LOVE
I now work a double lifestyle in that by day, I work as a Client Services Executive in Maidstone but by night (and most weekends!) I become a freelance makeup artist, hair stylist and blogger – the beauty version of Superwoman I like to think, saving the world one pair of dodgy eyebrows at a time…! The move off of the beauty counter and into an office worked out great for my freelance career as I now have every evening and weekend free for weddings and events and for any weekday jobs that pop up I just take the odd day holiday as and when I can.
FREELANCE AND ME…
As I am not in a salon every day I like to do all I can to keep my beauty knowledge up to scratch. I make sure to look out for the latest trends and techniques which is why blogging came as a natural sideline. I spend hours online or with my face buried in a magazine looking up things to push my skills to the next level whenever I can. Being a good artist, to me, means you are adaptable to change and have a vast knowledge of trends and techniques therefore, making you able to thrive in any environment. Likewise, when I work with other freelance artists I expect the same level of passion, creativity, knowledge and versatility in their trade as I have in mine.
