I am a freelance makeup artist based in York but am always happy to travel further afield! I live with my husband, daughter and mad border collie Buddy.  I do makeup for bridal parties, proms, the races and any other special occasions. I have also worked on photo shoots, allowing me to create some unique and creative looks.

I have always been interested in skincare and makeup, ensuring I’m up to date with the latest brands and trends. I can’t stop buying makeup!

I have a particular passion for bridal makeup as I get to share in the excitement in the lead up to the big day.  I get a lot of satisfaction from making the bride look and feel beautiful.

I have trained in skincare and as a makeup artist alongside some of the leading industry brands where I have gained a wealth of experience.  While working as a retail makeup artist with Bobbi Brown I have had the pleasure of teaching clients how to do their own makeup.  I find sharing my knowledge and watching ladies gain confidence in themselves hugely rewarding.

I truly believe that if the skin is in top condition, it makes the makeup look even more flawless and radiant. I therefore like to take time during the trial to advise clients on products and skincare regimes that will leave their skin looking at its optimal health by the time they reach their special day.

I want my clients to look back on photos of themselves in years to come and still love how they look. 

Using only the best skincare and makeup brands I strive to create a long lasting, timeless and elegant look for whatever that special occasion may be.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or for any further information.
