United Kingdom, Scotland, Highland
I have always had a passion for painting faces, but my love for make up is mainly focussed within the fashion and photographic industries.
I love working on out of the ordinary ideas, even if it's just going crazy with colour and making a mess. I think make up should be about having fun as well as feeling and looking good.
I also enjoy working on projects ranging from pin up, fashion and fantasy, to weddings and events. I just love getting creative.
I am dedicated to my art, and willing to work in almost any conditions. I find a project much more fun if its a challenge.
