I am a qualified freelance makeup artist covering Somerset, Devon and Cornwall. I have many years experience working with memorable brides, clients and models and working at some of the best wedding venues in the South West.
I trained at the Jemma Kidd Make Up School in London with extensive courses in blending and contouring the structure of the face, flawless skin, defining eyes, intensive bridal make up training and how to achieve the camera perfect face. I also am fully trained in Airbrush Makeup using Temptu, OCC & Airbase products. Airbrush makeup is perfect for bridal work as the skin is still able to breathe, but it can be built to a coverage to suit you and has amazing durability. Its heat proof, sweat proof, 24hr wear so no need for touch ups! It's also perfect for disguising tattoos and allows for the correction of skin blemishes and discolorations - leaving an even and flawless completion.
As a freelance artist I choose a varied and extensive kit, to ensure I have the best products in the industry - including cosmetics developed by makeup artists such as Laura Mercier, MAC, Shu Uemura, Charlotte Tilbury, Bobbi Brown, By Terry and Nars because they know what actually works in real life, along with cosmetics developed for on screen and in front of the camera such as Tom Ford, Make Up Forever and RCMA.
I also attend regular training with the MAC Pro team in London to keep up to date with the latest techniques and trends.
The most satisfying part of my job is seeing a bride beam in front of the mirror on what is her most important day - and I don't leave until I see that.
