Hi, Firstly, thanks for taking the time to look at my portfolio :-)
PLEASE ALSO CHECK OUT MY WEBSITE www.secondskinmua.co.uk
I am a fully qualified / fully insured MUA.
I specialise in the following makeup styles
I can also supply Costume/Accessories/props/basic prosthetics/bald caps and head-dresses to meet the needs of your shoot. I can work using my own initiative or from a brief. It is my desire to create interesting unusual images.
My flagged images are the SPECIAL FX work that I do for the Staffordshire and London Fire and Rescue. Some may find them a little disturbing so I flagged them
Considering a body paint??
I only use good quality professional paints that are EEC approved and are safe for cosmetic usage. The paints are water based. Equipment/material used: Air brush, brushes (artificial hair ie nylon), sponges, tissue roll, wet wipes, fresh water, non-toxic face paints, non-toxic glitters. Head dresses depending on shoot idea. Sometimes I will use latex so a latex allergy test is recommended for this type of shoot. I recommend that you do not use any tanning creams/lotions or spray tans in the couple of weeks running up to a bodypaint as sometimes it can react with the paint. Also its recommended that you exfoliate as this gives a smoother finish.
I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CHARGE A CANCELLATION FEE FOR VERY LATE CANCELLATION OF BOOKINGS FOR BODYPAINTING DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF BACKGROUND WORK PUT IN FOR EVERY SHOOT
