About Me

My professional career in makeup began in 2015, with a huge leap of faith and It has, without any doubt, been the most wonderful decision.

I’ve Always Loved Make Up

Everyone plays with their Mum’s makeup when they are wee and I am no exception, but it was actually my Gran who was my original makeup inspiration. She would never leave the house to walk her dog without her lipstick and blush on.  She inspired me to explore…


Your makeup is lovely, have you just had it done? I honestly couldn’t tell you how many times someone has asked me that question. It eventually got me thinking that I could go on to learn to apply make up on other people

My Training

I studied makeup at the Scottish Beauty School, under the mentorship of Elaine Coburn.  I then went on to build my mobile makeup business and have never looked back.  I am a firm believer in consistency and always looking to improve on my skill set and this year I was fortunate enough to join the Kristina Gasperas Academy.  Learning from Kristina has given me an ‘edge’ in bridal and occasion makeup.  Kristina is renowned for her beautiful bridal makeup looks and her knowledge in the bridal beauty industry is second to none, winning the National Award for Best Bridal Makeup Artist in the Wedding Industry Awards (2013), then going on to join as a judge on the panel. I feel so privileged to be doing a job that I love, giving the gift of confidence to so many amazing people along the way.

My Passion as a Make Up Artist


When I am working with a client, my goal is to always apply makeup in the most beautiful and natural looking way.  I specialise in bridal and occasion makeup as I have a natural ability in this area and I love it!  I believe makeup should always look elegant, timeless and always totally  flattering to the individual wearing it.  In the years following the wedding day, I want my clients to look back at their beautiful wedding makeup that never dated.
