I’ve been a professional Hair & Makeup Artist since 2012 when I graduated from Delamar Academy at Ealing Studios. Since then I’ve been lucky enough to work on productions for the BBC, SKY Atlantic, Channel 4, the Discovery Channel, UKTV, Endemol, Channel 5 and Sadlers Wells. Aswell as TV and Theatre work, I’ve done many Weddings and special occasions in and around London, Bristol, Surrey and the South East of England. I love to travel so am willing to do so for future job opportunities.
Although the audience isn’t always aware of it, Film, TV and Theatre Makeup are essential in successfully portraying the believable story of a certain character. From Period Makeup looks to more contemporary or natural designs, from Casualty and Character makeup to Prosthetics and Special FX. I’m in my element making up different faces for different themes. I love the variety of genre and recreating looks for both screen and stage. If I know there is an upcoming look or technique required that I haven’t had to do or use in a while, I will make time to practise and perfect it to the best of my ability so that I can be confident I know what I need to do on the day. There is always room for improvement and practise is so important to achieving a look you can be proud of.
Bridal Makeup and Hair is key to making sure any Bride (or any one I make up for that matter!) looks and feels beautiful, happy and radiant on their special day with a look that lasts and stands the test of time (on the day and in the photos!) I understand the importance of finding the right colours, products and techniques for each individual woman so that she can be confident as well as comfortable. I always ask if there is anything my clients want to add, take away or experiment with in order to ensure they are 100% happy with their final look. We will not stop until they are happy!
Hair is such an important tool for any working Makeup Artist as it can transform a simple basic or period makeup into an authentic character or an amazing visual treat! Hair completes and enhances any look, whether it’s Bridal, Retro, Contemporary or Character Makeup. Fancy up-do’s, voluminous waves, textured tresses and loose styles each have their own place in Makeup and Hair Design as they help to achieve the overall ‘WOW’ factor in any look. I love a good hair challenge and I endeavor to always be expanding my hair skills! There are always new tools and techniques coming out so the possibilities and learning opportunities are endless no matter how long you’ve been in the industry.
Photo Shoots are a great way for people to bring their creativity together and produce something visually stunning or intriguing. Photographers, Stylists, Hair and Makeup Designers and Models will each bring their own ideas to the shoot and the results can be fantastic. In my experience, there must always be an agreed theme to focus on so that everyone involved has something they can work towards achieving. TFP Photo Shoots are a great way to meet new, like-minded people, explore new ideas and techniques and produce fabulous Portfolio images.
