you could say makeup was my
I discovered its power when my parents gave me a book by celebrity Makeup Artist Kevin Aucoin. Mesmerised by the transformations contained within its pages, I spent hours studying pictures of iconic women like Julia Roberts, Janet Jackson, Cindy Crawford and Tina Turner. I was fascinated by their glamour and in awe of Aucoin’s obvious creativity and skill. Years later, when I saw him on Sex and the City doing Carrie Bradshaw’s makeup during New York Fashion Week, I was inspired by his career all over again.
I spent my early teens practicing on friends and family whenever I could.
I first qualified as a Beauty Therapist specialising in skincare before training to be a Makeup Artist at the prestigious London College of Fashion. I spent a further eight years working for MAC, broadening my skills and growing as an Artist.
For the last decade, I’ve been building my own business specialising in luxury bridal makeup. I can’t imagine doing anything else – this is where my passion lies.
My signature style is modern and fresh. Think effortless glamour and gorgeous, glowing skin. Makeup that photographs beautifully and looks flawless close up while also celebrating and enhancing your favourite features.
I want you to feel like the very best version of yourself. Together, we’ll consider the type of look you’re hoping to achieve, your personality and the products and techniques you feel most comfortable wearing. The result is a perfect combination of beautiful makeup and masses of confidence.
about skincare, I adore makeup and the world of weddings is my favourite place to be, but what I love most is making people feel pampered and special.
I work hard to provide a seamless, stress-free booking experience. Your in-depth, bespoke bridal trial takes place at my private makeup studio in Canterbury and the whole process is filled with thoughtful, personalised touches and luxurious details.
On your wedding day, I want you to enjoy every moment. I believe the bridal prep should be just as much fun as the main event, so I focus on creating an uplifting, memorable experience. You’ll be able to relax and enjoy getting ready while I take care of everything else.
more about me
Makeup Artist, Mama and Wife
I live in Canterbury with my husband, Daniel and our daughter, Lyra. We named her after a constellation we saw while stargazing together on one of our first weekends away. Family time is precious. I love watching Lyra’s personality develop and teaching her new skills every day. Her little laugh is everything! I feel lucky to have created a business that gives me the flexibility to enjoy the best of both worlds – a job I love and a little girl who loves me.
Just after my 30th birthday we bought our forever home and moved to the countryside. When I’m not busy working or chasing after Lyra, I spend alot of time on Pinterest dreaming about and planning our next renovation project.
I love Sunday brunch, clean sheets and expensive candles. My favourite cocktail is a Piña Colada. Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle has been my signature scent for as long as I can remember. Whenever I pop to Waitrose, I always end up leaving with a bunch of fresh flowers and the arrival of The White Company catalogue never fails to make my day!
I’m a big believer in
the power of little luxuries and not saving things for best. I try to find
the beauty in small,
everyday moments and I think practicing gratitude
can change your life.
