With over 12 years experience working as a makeup artist and within the beauty industry, I have extensive knowledge and experience including winning awards for my work and being recognised in some of the most popular and respected wedding magazines and blogs.
Most recently I have been included as one of the UK’s best wedding makeup artists in ‘Wedding Ideas’ magazine.
When I’m not working, you’ll find me at home in the Vale of Glamorgan with my husband and 6 year old Daughter. (My home studio is also here!) We love to travel to Mallorca a lot where my Dad lives and my other interests are anything interior related, and trying to keep some sort of fitness in the gym!
I love making women feel beautiful, but its not just about that…its about being approachable and making someone’s experience with me relaxing and easy whenever you want to feel special sat in my makeup chair.
I have since made in excess of 500 brides (not to mention their bridal parties!!) and women needing to look their best for events and occasions, worked on some high profile clients and exciting projects and helped teach women how to apply makeup they feel confident in.
I pride myself on creating bespoke looks for my clients. I do have a soft glowy signature style skin, but it’s important to me to work with every client I have to determine what will look best for them, taking into account all factors including eye shape, face shape, skin type, tone, lifestyle factors personal taste and so on. One look for every client just wont work.
I have gone on to win the regional welsh wedding award for best makeup, and most recently the NHF ‘Welsh makeup artist of the year 2017’
More recently I have set up successful workshops and courses for the everyday woman or the beauty professional wanting to brush up on their skills from myself as well as being asked to host a masterclass for Becca cosmetics in John Lewis, Cardiff.
I am based in South Wales/South west & Mallorca, but open to travelling further afield.
Please browse the website whether your interested in hiring me for your wedding day or occasion, commercial/photographic makeup, lesson or in depth makeup workshop. Use the links to get in touch and I will do my best to help!
