i have a keen interest in creative makeup, i like to be given a challenge and relish the opportunity to try new things. I am experienced at bridal makeup and still do lots of shoots involving brides and i get booked out to do weddings and special occasion makeup.
I am really interested in body art, it isnt an area i have any experience in upto now but i am creative and enthusiastic and am on the look out for a mentor to teach me the ropes in this area.
i love clean makeup lines, i like anything different, i love the use of one colour in a makeup that compliments the models eyes or skin to really make the picture pop. im just getting into using gems and beads with makeup and love a good theatrical theme to work from.
im a great planner and will always buy any materials i need for a shoot even if its just for trade, i put my all into the work i do and will go that extra mile to get the job done. i like to see images of the model before the assignment and as much detail as possible about the overall look were trying to achieve. i will then draw up face charts and submit them for approval before the shoot day.
as my kit is costly i am only able to do trade jobs if it is really going to benefit my portfolio, but i am thorough, will go the extra mile and i have had several comments on my ability to put models at ease and make the whole shoot enjoyable and fun.
I qualified as a beauty therapist in 2005, since then i have completed a number of bridal and special occasion makeup's but am now looking to branch out more. I have done some photo shoots for trade and am happy to do more to build up my portfolio...the wackier the better! I love being creative and am an excellent planner.
my latest shoot was a gothic glam shoot which i absolutely loved and the shoot was a complete success, prior to that i have organised a bridal open event at a hair salon, where we also had a photoshoot taking place, i gave 3 models 3 different bridal looks and i have done shoots involving headshots and location shoots.
my qualification are NVQ level 2
