About The Teacher

I have had a passion for Makeup from a very young age, rummaging around in my mother's collection and trying everything on.

I love the way Makeup makes you feel, how you can transform someones day by suggesting the right lipstick for them. Watching the joy when you make a clients eye really be the focus of the face. The textures the collections, the old and the new it all fascinates me. I want to share my passion for makeup with you!

Starting with small makeup houses, eventually landing a job in 1996 with the much-loved M.A.C Cosmetics, over the next 15 years I learned my craft. I was so fortunate to work with the most prominent makeup artists and different nationalities enabling me to learn all about skin, face shapes and contours.

I worked on some of the busiest M.A.C counters in the UK finally ending up in Selfridges for six years; this is where you receive your education. Helping choose products for people, applying them in a fast paced environment, customer service and working with 100’s of people a day. My team and I made the counter number 1 in the world!

I have worked in all genres of makeup from Bridal, day to day styling, fashion, shoots, videos, runway, Fashion rocks concerts.

I love my work, and my only wish is to make the person I am styling feel a million dollars!
