Biography - Vows Awards Nominee Make Up Artist 2014

Hello! Thanks for visiting my website. Make-up artistry is my lifelong passion, and it is my goal to help you look amazing for your special event. Whatever your age, skin tone, face shape and colouring, the right make-up will make you shine. Whether you are planning a wedding, prom, event, important party or simply a big night out, my team and I can give you a makeover with a real ‘wow factor’.

About Me

The focus of my makeup business is you. As a customer I put you centre stage, giving you a completely personalised service based on your natural strengths and the look you want to achieve. Here is a little bit about me, my background and why I think you should get in touch! I am a MAC Cosmetics trained artist with nearly 20 years’ experience in the industry. Over the years I have worked with people of all backgrounds and walks of life, from celebrities and models to brides-to-be, body builders and teenage prom queens. For several years I worked as part of the Chanel UK team, and was lucky enough to be personally trained by celebrity artist Sharon Dowsett in London. Working as part of the Chanel Elite team was a real eye-opener and a challenge – and taught me many of my techniques and styles that I still use today. It was always my goal to eventually set up my own business. Since doing so I’ve worked with some fantastic people, and continue to develop the range of services I offer to my customers. When not actively engaged in working with clients, I am a make-up columnist with a monthly column called The Powder Room. In my column I cover all manner of topics, from makeup styles, cosmetic camouflage, strobing, stage makeup, celebrity styles and new product reviews from leading brands.

Award-Winning Wedding Make Up

I am delighted to have picked up some fantastic recognition for my wedding make up, for which I’m grateful to the beautiful brides I’ve worked on. In 2014 I was a Vows Award Finalist- for outstanding contribution to the wedding industry. My Work is also regularly featured in several publications, including The Scottish Wedding Directory and The Best of Scottish Weddings.

Fresh Team !

BiographyRecently my business has expanded and I now have a great team of talented makeup artists whom I have personally trained to deliver my high standards. You will of course be advised during your initial enquiry as to whether I’m available or not. If not, I can offer you an artist from my hand picked team. The new artists work closely under my supervision, and I’ve been really impressed with their commitment to quality service and setting new standards for makeup. The team continues the highly personalised, contemporary philosophy that I have learned through my career – and it is great to have some fresh input and new perspectives. The team are a great addition, and also allow me to take on larger projects, such as wedding and hen parties.
