  • What do you love most about what you do? I love that through makeup I can help every day women feel empowered and confident in their own skin, highlighting and defining their natural beauty. While I'm only there for a tiny portion of the wedding day, knowing that I've in some way had a positive impact the biggest day in my clients life is an awesome feeling.
  • What gets you out of bed in the morning? I like to think I have a positive personality, and always find something to look forward too in my day, be it something silly like knowing I have a parcel arriving in the mail or having something yummy to eat, or the great moments like meeting my clients for the first time, or seeing my work in public and print.
  • Where did your passion for what you do start? When I was in high school, My childhood best friend asked to do her makeup for her graduation/ formal, having never done makeup on another face I was terrified. But seeing her eyes light up when she saw herself all polished and done up was beyond amazing. The glow she had inspired me to pursue makeup and get me to where I am today.
  • In my spare time I love collecting... lipsticks, vintage tea cups and cocktail glasses
