About Me.

Makeup artistry and a passion for the fashion and beauty industry is in my genes and I've always loved the freedom of creativity mixed with the ability to improve upon and evolve your chosen canvas.  
To me, makeup artistry is a gift to bring confidence and self-assurance to everyone (and I always go by my mantra 'the base makes the face' when applying flawlessly blended makeup to my clients). 
When a client books me, whoever they may be, we work together to create the best version of them and we have a great time doing it!
