Professional's Portfolio PictureProfessional's Portfolio PictureIntroduction

I have been working as a freelance make-up artist for 5 years and enjoy teaching different make-up techniques at Castle College in Nottinghamshire. I teach NVQ level 3 make-up which includes special effects such as casualty wounds, ready made prosthetic application, airbrushing techniques, theatrical, and media make-up techniques.  I have recently set up my own make-up academy and really enjoy teaching my new students different Fashion and Photographic make-up applications and take pride in their development and achievements.  As a fully qualified teacher I am a member of the Institute for Learning.
I have worked with the East Midlands award winning photographer as well as Lookfly clothing range,local directors and producers on music videos and short films.  I have also worked for Nottinghamshire Theatre production companies.  I really enjoy providing a private service for brides to be, creating the perfect individual bridal make-over to help make their special day more relaxing and enjoyable. I have also provided bridal services for Keith Hall.

I have researched many products to determine which are most efficient for the different types of make-up applications to ensure the professional finish I create is long lasting and water/smudge proof.  This will keep your look perfect all day. I am experienced in working with all different skin colours and my products include  Professional products house brands as well as Mac, Narz, Becca, shu uemura, YSL, Clinique and many more.

Thanks for viewing my work and if you have any questions about my private services or my make-up academy please feel free to call or email me. My website is currently in development and I hope to have this complete in the next few weeks.  The address will be
