Makeup artist based in West Midlands
I have been working as a makeup artist in the West Midlands for over 14 years now. Firstly, I believe my love started from my mum, the lady who for as long as I can remember never left her bedroom without wearing her liquid eyeliner and red lipstick, I also learnt at a young age how important this ‘makeup stuff’ was to women. I am also a proud mum to my two boys, Oakley and Saxon. and Recently, after my dream wedding in the Maldives I am now mrs Shakespeare to my Husband James.
My journey began working in department stores, where I worked for Giorgio Armani for 10 great years, starting in retail and working up to a senior makeup artist including offering bridal makeup and commercial work. This gave me the opportunity to work backstage and on the red carpet amongst some very talented people in the industry, who have helped me develop my skills. My most memorable experiences have included working alongside Linda Cantello and being chosen to do Lilly Cole’s makeup at a charity event.
