I have been working as a professional makeup artist for over 15 years.
I worked for MAC Cosmetics for 8 years in both Leeds and New York City and I have worked on fashion shows/fashion shoots/Broadway shows (Hairspray, Bollywood, Broadway Bares and more), magazine editorials and TV, as well as over 9 years working with brides to create the perfect wedding day look.
The Products I Use
I mainly use MAC products but also love Benefit, Urban Decay, Estee Lauder, Hourglass, Charlotte Tilbury, Anastasia Beverly Hills . . . to name a few.
In order to get the look you want and make sure you achieve your overall objective, I like to understand your theme, e.g. what your wedding dress is going to look like and your style and colour scheme.
For Weddings we have a trial (consultation) were we talk about how you normally do your makeup and then we look at pictures that you bring along to the consultation (celeb. looks/red carpet/bride pictures, etc.) of makeup that you like. I then create a look based on all of this in the trial (consultation). Once you are happy, I make notes and take photographs of the look we have created together, ready for it to be repeated on the day.
I am very hands on and assist in queries about makeup, lipsticks, products, etc. I often have my clients email me after a lesson or in the lead up to a wedding about which skin products or makeup bits to use. I always recommend some key products to add to your makeup kits.
In addition, I will give you some quick secret tips to help you with your everyday makeup . . . some things to do in less than 5 minutes to make you look fabulous daily!
