Hannah has been working as a freelance Pro Makeup Artist for around 3 years now. She received her first paid makeup gig through college, but before this, done occasional makeup for events and paid online collaborations with brands such as Lush and LondonCopyright.
Hannah became really interested in creative makeup and body painting when she was creating social media content for Lush. Her role would be to take photographs of the products, when one halloween she thought it would be a fun idea to create some spooky looks using the Lush Makeup. She received such a good reaction from the followers, Lush America even shared the content on their social media platform. With such a great response, Hannah decided to continue with this hobby, and from then she has been addicted to everything makeup. She’s absorbed a lot of information from pro-makeup artists in different fields, and now shares all her knowledge and tips on her instagram as a creative outlet and as a Tutor here at GlamCandy.

Hannah started college in 2021 with GlamCandy, and is now a Tutor here training up our students. As much as she was enjoying doing makeup online, she felt she needed something more and wanted to dive into doing makeup on others. From the tutors encouraging Hannah to push boundaries, and giving constructive feedback, Hannah gained confidence in herself as a makeup artist very quickly.
Since being with GlamCandy, Hannah has had the opportunity to work on many events. She has had the opportunity to work on a two day wedding at Hopetoun House, being a Makeup Designer on theatre shows at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, multiple Editorial Photoshoots and events creating characters for Promotional Videos.
Hannah loves practicing any form of makeup daily, however, outwith work she enjoys watching a good film or TV show, reading a book, eating good food or going exploring. She feels the best bit about her job is having the ability to share the knowledge she has learnt. She also loves being makeup looks come together. “It’s the final moment when you realise it’s finished and you get that ‘light bulb’ moment. A lot of looks won’t look right until the finishing touchers, and it’s this moment that is so magical!”
