WELCOME TO MY PAGE.
I have worked in the make up industry for over 10 years. My love for make up started when I studied to be a beauty therapist back in 2007, I quickly realised at this time there was no where in Scotland for any make up courses to take my skills further.
As I knew this is what I wanted to do, I decided to train myself, I would watch videos and practice on my friends at any opportunity. I started putting my make up on social media and began to build up a profile, before I knew it I was getting asked to do occasion and bridal make up.
I started working with Benefit Cosmetics in 2012 where I was a retail artist. I then got headhunted by MAC Cosmetics because of my great work skills and moved on to work there in 2014.
I started as a retail artist and worked my way up to manger.
MAC gave me the best experience working with all different types of people.
In 2017 I decided it was time to spread my wings and go solo. I was getting a lot of demand, as I had managed to build up a great profile.
By this point I was doing fashion shoots for Hayley Scanlan, Dreamland, Isolated Heros and taking part in other fashion events.
Through all this I finally opened my own studio and I took on an apprentice as my workload was so busy.
In 2018 I studied to be a teacher trainer, This gave me the qualification's to then train up make up artist and qualify them.
I ran my make up academy from 2018-2020. Sadly this stopped due to Covid, However I have trained and Qualified over 40 students, covering every area of make up. Fashion, Bridal, Glam, Facepaints and SFX.
I now have my very own make up range (website attached below) and work freelance doing bridal, events and occasion make up.
