How to become a makeup artist
I was interviewed by Open Colleges about how I became a makeup artist. It sounds so cliche but I loved makeup from a fairly young age and I loved doing my friend's makeup through my teens. I knew this is what I wanted to do. I first studied makeup in 1998, and then went on to work on a cosmetics counter whilst freelancing on the side when I could. If you would like to read more about my career and how I got here plus a few words from fellow makeup artist Amelia Webb, here is a link to the full article:

Calvin Klein Launch
Earlier this year, I was asked to join Dana Leviston, to work on the launch of Calvin Klein's denim and underwear lines. With the help of two of her hairstylists, we got 10 models ready in a few hours. We created a natural, luminous look for the models using CK one's beautiful cosmetics.

Behind the Scenes
I have had the pleasure of working with French photographer Sabine Legrand a few times this year. She always takes beautiful behind the scenes photos. Here are a couple from a shoot we did a couple of months ago.
