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 started my career gaining a HND in Beauty & spa management, which was a great foundation but I had always loved makeup. When I was in school, I wouldn’t settle for cheap makeup and would always spend my weekend job earnings on the department store goods.
I decided after owning my own salon and various other roles once I had my daughter that I would focus solely on makeup and becoming the best I could be at that.
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’
Its an incredible feeling helping women feel so confident by making them the vest version of themselves they can be, or into a total glamazon – whatever the preference!
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.
Makeup gives people confidence and who doesn’t need a bit more self love?!
