About MeCurrently working for MAC cosmetics
My ever growing passion lies in the heart and soul of make-up, the art thats behind it, and the freedom of self individualism that we can all experince with it.
Although beauty comes from within, Make-up brings out the beauty in people. Enhancing their features and stunning aspects with a little help from shading and dusting, fusing eyes with dazzling colours, & injecting lips with a powerfull pout. Make-up can transform some faces & make them come alive.
In 2009 I entered my work into a competition to win a scolarship to attend a very well know and established make up artistry college and am thrilled to say I won the only position . . . I began a Fashion, Theatre and Media ITEC Make Up Course and hair styling course which I have completed.
I am also a qualified beauty therapist and a although I did a MUA course I am self taught as everything I do and know I have thought myself prior to completing my course. I have recently took up the profession of make up artistry, I’m currently building up my make up portfolio and would love to get to work with models and photographers alike.
I have also attended the Liberties College, in Bull Alley Street and attended their Interior design course as well as completed a gel and acrylic nail course.
I want to crack into the industry and establish myself as a well known make up artist and be the best I can be in this profession. I wish to build my portfolio and make contacts in the industry.
I am also on Talented Young People

I am always looking to step out of the box. Doing out of the ordinary fantasy and fairytale looks are my favourite style. I am not so much into normal makeup as I do this on a day to day basis and wish to unleash my creative juices. I also enjoy doing creepy demonic looks.
I have collected a good amount of props, costumes and head pieces which i like to bring to shoots if i feel they would suite the concept. I like to make my own facial pieces by hand and can also make hats but this does take a good amount of time and would need notice on making these.
I like to be involved as much as possible and love to be sent images of ideas as guidelines to work from. I like to sketch up face charts prior to shoots so i have my own take on the ideas to discuss the concept with photographers so we can meet together with the perfect image.
90% of my work has no retouching as this was not allowed for my ITEC portfolio exams so all flaws and mistakes can be seen
