BIOGRAPHY

Before i started at GlamCandy i used to work at M&S part time when i applied to work at GlamCandy. When i got the job i was over the moon that i was working in something that i was so passionate about and working with people who i now class as my best friends. Working with Glamcandy has given me amazing opportunities such as the Gok Wan Fashion Show and working with such lively and unique clients. I’m excited for what’s to come and to watch Glamcandy grow even more!

Q&A

WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO GET IN TO MAKE-UP ARTISTRY?

I’ve always wanted to be a make up artist since i was young. Seeing celebs all done up with their makeup and watching films where they have SPX make up. It really opened my eyes to how make up can completely change someones image and it made me want to pursue make up as a career.

I was a self taught make up artist and was then taught up professionally by Glamcandy.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY?

2 and a bit years.

WHO INSPIRES YOU?

I get inspired from artists who are very creative such as Pat Mcgrath, Mario Dedivanovic, Charlotte Tilberry, Stacey Marie, Karla Powell and Jamie Genevieve.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TYPE OF MAKEUP ARTISTRY?

Creative eye make up.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE EXAMPLE OF WORK?

My favourite piece of work is the blown out smokey eyeshadow in my favourite colour blue that i created on myself.

WHAT TRENDS DO YOU THINK WILL BE BIG IN 2018/2019?

Natural make up and fluffy brows.

WHAT IS YOUR MUST-HAVE PRODUCT?

Illamasqua’s eyebrow gel.
