Welcome to Magnificent Make-Up!

 I'm a qualified professional Make-Up Artist. I'm based in the Forest Of Dean but cover the whole of Gloucestershire. Sometimes travelling further depending on the job and as long as travel costs are covered. I provide a professional and friendly service for all types of events.

I passed a Make-Up Artist Diploma in 2009 and a Fashion and Photographic Certificate in 2010.

I have since added Women's hairdressing to my qualifications, gaining a Level 2 Diploma in Women's Hairdressing July 2015.

I have experience working on Short Films, Corporate Films, Feature Film Trailers, TV,  Theatre Productions, Music Videos,  Photo Shoots,  Casualty Simulation, Pantomimes, Body Painting, Face Painting and Wedding/Special Ocassion Make-Up.

 As well as being a Make-up artist, I have also worked on wardrobe. I have made, altered and sourced costumes for Films, Music Videos, Photo Shoots, Etc. I have also designed and made costumes for Theatre Productions, Pantomimes, Themed Events and Photo Shoots.  Although, I have no formal training in dress/costume making. I have also been a dresser on theatre productions.

I have had some basic  training in wig setting/dressing.  I was required to do a certain amount as part of my make-up artist diploma qualification. 

In April 2011 I was given the opportunity of work experience in the wigs department on Hairspray at the Bristol Hippodrome. Not only did I learn a huge amount about wigs on a production I love, I also got to work alongside someone I've always admired, Mr Michael Ball. It was this experience that gave me the push I needed to do a hairdressing course.

Before training as a Make-Artist I used to run my own business as a Florist. I still do some floristry work, you'd be surprised how many times I have been able to use both my make-up and floristry skills together.

 I really love my work and enjoy being creative, I'm always working on new ideas to explore.
