A good MUA can make the difference between a 'good' model shot and a 'great' model shot. She is piece of invaluable equipment in herself! And well worth investing in!
I am an extremely motivated individual with a passion for makeup artistry, and I am capable of producing high standards of work both alone and as part of a team, from the research and design process right through to the application of makeup and maintenance of continuity.
I operate the highest standards of professionalism, and follow health and safety guidelines at all times. I have education in a broad spectrum of makeup media, such as airbrushing, camouflage, special effects and silicone prosthetics, and have a full and varied makeup kit of top quality brands and products.
I have a full, clean driving license and I own my own car so can travel to locations, and a pleasant, committed attitude which I feel would make me a valuable member of any makeup department.
Alongside my media makeup work, I also work as a facepainter, bridal makeup artist, editorial, make-over and portfolio makeup artist on a regular basis.
I am a fully qualified NVQ Level 3 Make Up Artist, with experience in both Media Make Up, and Special Effects.
I have just completed my degree in Media Design Make-Up Artistry, really honing my skills in areas such as hair design, airbrushing and body art, Styling for the Camera and Creative Make Up design, although I am a specialist in Special Effects, Prosthetics and Silicone.
I am capable of simple hair styling, wet and heated sets, up-do's, ornamentation, padding, crimping, frizzing braiding etc.
I use good quality, branded products and uphold the highest hygiene standards. I am punctual, reliable and professional, but also easy going and extremely personable. I enjoy being challenged and working hard to produce the highest quality of unique images, for photographer, model and MUA alike.
