I wore a lot of makeup myself as a way of experimenting with colours. I didn’t have any makeup schools near where I lived in the midlands at that time so I attended a beauty course that had media and theatrical makeup included. I soon realised I didn’t enjoy making people look like zombies, but I enjoyed making them look beautiful.

I got my first job in a beauty salon and worked in this industry for over 10 years, but doing makeup occasionally. When I went out I loved doing my friends makeup. I moved to London and worked for Clarins, where I did beauty treatments and makeup lessons and makeovers. I did weddings on the side when needed.

I moved back down to Cornwall and my makeup side of the business slowly became  more popular until I had to choose to go full time self employed and let go of a regular pay check. Later I realised this was the best decision I had made. I haven’t look back since.  I have now looked after hundreds of brides and their friends and family’s.  I  have a lot of  wedding suppliers and venues that recommend me and I have been in many magazines and online blogs for my makeup.

I also teach makeup for anyone who wants to be a makeup artist and also for clients who would like to learn how to do their own makeup.

One of my hobbies is photography, which I love! I am self taught and I love doing a great makeup then capturing it on camera.
