“I started my journey into the makeup and hair industry after studying a BA(Hons) in hair and makeup for music, film and photography. My love for makeup and desire to be creative were finally married together and my passion for makeup artistry was born. After graduating, I spent the next 6 years working in the film, TV, fashion and bridal industries.

I did my first wedding back in 2013 and fell in love with the relationship that can develop between a bride and her makeup artist. The morning of a wedding can be one of the most important days of your life, so surrounding yourself with friendly, open people who are going to give you that big boost of confidence on your wedding morning is vital. I pride myself on specialising in natural makeup, that enhances natural beauty and doesn’t mask it. I work with a lot of clients who are not used to wearing much makeup, but would just like to look like a more polished version of themselves on their wedding day.

I only use cruelty free products in my kit, with many of them also being natural and organic. My passion for the environment, animals and health and wellness led me to open an online store selling the many natural and organic makeup and skincare products that I use in my professional kit, as well as on myself.
