About Me

I am a professional makeup artist with 14 years of industry experience and love to experiment with colour and invigorate my creativity whenever and wherever I can.  Being passionate about makeup artistry, my style is continuously evolving with current trends.

I have been in the  industry for so long,and understand the differences between makeup quality; therefore I only use high quality good makeup. Most of my kit is Bobbi Brown, MAC, Makeup Forever but I do love to shop for cosmetics and have things from other brands that I think are good. But everything I use is hand selected and tested out by me. I will never use something on your face/skin I wouldn't put on mine.

I live for the feeling after an application.  That moment my client looks in the mirror and is so much more confident and is feeling beautiful.

Our Story

The Personal Stuff

I'm a completely crazy Canadian, who moved to London about 10 years ago. This was only supposed to be a two year thing... but somehow I am still here...don't know if it love or what yet.

I didn't always know i was gonna become a Makeup Artist, I'd love to lie and say...it was my childhood passion, but I was so unaware of makeup until really my teen years, my mom didn't/still doesn't wear much makeup besides her handle lipstick. so foundations, concealers, correctors were all a foreign thing....

I landed my first ever job as retail artist on a crazy whim... I was working in department store's ladies wear section and during my lunch break I started talking to a lady about the retail industry /my career( who was also waiting in line to order her food)... It's a perfectly safe trait many Canadian's have, so don't be too alarmed at the fact i'm talking to a random stranger about my career etc.... She actually suggested I apply for a makeup vacancy the department store had for a luxury brand...  I felt like I would have been totally the wrong type of person giving beauty advice... but Im also a little risk talker... I applied you never know eh?....and you wouldn't believe me but it turns out the lady I was talking  to was actually the lady doing my interview... so technically I nailed my first interview without even knowing about it.... and that is it guys...that happened in 2001 and i've been on this crazy makeup ride since.... so when I say i love makeup... I really do love the power of makeup...
