BIOGRAPHY

I first got into make up when i was working at Top shop as they put me in charge of a small make up counter. Realising what make up can do for people’s looks and confidence really inspired me to make it into a career. I really enjoy working with so many faces day to day. I love how in this industry you are constantly learning, trends are changing all the time and you can really express yourself as a make up artist. It also helps working with such an amazing team on a daily basis to motivate and push you to the best of your potential.
