I trained as a Makeup Artist after working as a Personal Shopper for a few years. I liked fashion but I LOVED makeup.. I have always been drawn to colours and creativity. After my training I was very fortunate to land a job at MAC at which I progressed to being a manager. I had lots of responsibility, really enjoyed developing my team, worked in the heart of London, UK and I was surrounded by this incredible family of artists. While my professional life soared, my personal life sucked. And then it changed. Drastically! I met my husband who lived in Montreal, Canada and flew across the pond to move countries. Since then we had a family and moved countries again.... to the other side of the world....Japan!
This opportunity gave me the kick I needed to make my business more independent. With 18 years experience, I am confident in bridal, fashion and beauty editorial makeup, advertising campaigns, fashion shows, and music videos. I have worked on various publications such as Greek Vogue, Cartier Polo and Dressed To Kill Magazine. I have also been so blessed to have met and worked with some celebrities such as Kate Middleton, Jude Law, and Annie Lennox.
My favourite part of my job is helping women to realise and feel their beauty. When you can teach and guide someone to do their own makeup, and they take that first look in the mirror and you can almost touch the feeling of confidence - that's when I know I've done a good job!
