Today we bring you guys a nice interview about her career and how her journey in the fashion world started.
When did you know, you wanted to be a makeup artist?
I think I always did, when young I loved playing with colours and textures mixing makeups, layering products, encouraged by a family of creative, I tried other occupations as a young adult but always came back to makeup so I decided in my 20s my passion was too strong to ignore and set off on a career of learning
Who are some people that have inspired you throughout your career?
My ultimate hero has always been Allan “Whitey” Snyder, the personal makeup artist to The iconic beauty Marilyn Monroe, the man was a genius, despite the misconception that contouring is a modern trend this man was the brains behind the contour we use today. Applying shading to change face shapes adding highlights to accentuate the highest and best points of the face and body, Such a beautiful intelligent creative who understood faces effortlessly.
One of my biggest influence has always been Daniel Sandler, I would sit watching his tutorials, reading his blogs and interviews admiring his clean elegant timeless looks spending hours trying to recreate his masterpieces.Then, the creative dream Danessa Myricks I was so influenced by her colours and textures, Matt to gloss.
Glowing highlights without harsh lines a woman who truly understands light
How long have you been a makeup artist and how did you get your start in the industry?
Officially 18 although passionate about makeup since a child.
After trying other careers, I couldn’t see myself doing anything other than makeup do finally in my early 20s I decided to do a short course focusing on bridal, after building a successful career in bridal I started to find myself getting bored and complacent, so I helped a friend who was a student Designer on a few shows where by chance a tv producer saw my work and suggested I trained with the BBCs Judith Neame, the head of makeup for the BBC for over 30 years Judith had a successful media makeup stage school training artists in full media makeup, tv, film, fashion, hair, wig making and SFX .
I went and passed my course with flying colours.
Since then I’ve never looked back, my career grew from strength to strength developing my own aesthetic.
How would you describe your signature look and what is it about the style that sets you except for other makeup artists?
I’d say my look is glossy fashion.
Known for my skin and colour work keeping the base glowing and vibrant yet enhancing natural beautiful features
Then adding colours and textures to lips and eyes creating shapes on the glossy skin.
I find product research an addiction studying long and hard finding perfect colours and textures to suit different circumstances making my kit extensive, and unique. I love the constant changes in fashion so learning never gets boring.
What’s your favourite makeup product?
Daniel Sandler water colour blushes, I can’t be without these liquids, a liquid colour easy to blend leaving a shiny natural fresh colour, I use them on cheeks, lips and eyes
The colours are long lasting and well thought through.
What does beauty mean to you?
A personal way of expressing emotions and mood. If you’re having a vibrant day you can glow and shine, if your feeling sexy you can show it with dark eyes and seductive red lips. The freedom to create shapes, colours, tones and textures. Making a face a palette free to create on.
