Makeup Artist


    Country of origin: United Kingdom



    I have a wide variety of experience within industry, which includes being the Hair & Makeup HOD for a feature film called The Hand of The Creator, whose cast included Jerry Hall and Jack Gordon (Northern Soul). My duties included designing the looks, breaking down the script, keeping continuity, working within budget constraints and engaging additional hair and makeup artists. One of the looks required a leading actor to be slightly aged for each scene, which required special effects makeup and great attention to continuity.Other productions I have provided hair & makeup services for include docu/dramas for Channel 5, BBC World News and The Royal Television Society. I have worked on many commercials for household names such as Kit Kat, Parker Pens and Sharp, several music videos and worked as dailies on feature films. I also have had work published in both magazines and newspapers, with one of the most recent being Vogue Italia.I have an extensive skill set, partly due to having a degree in Media Makeup, Special Effects Makeup and Hair Design, which not only includes hair and makeup for photographic, film and television but also prosthetics, airbrushing, wig styling, facial postiche and body art. In addition to having a degree in makeup, I am also an expert hairdresser, including hair cutting/clippering, colouring and wig work.I believe that it is important to stay abreast of the newest products and application techniques in order to provide the best finished looks possible, which is why regular short courses are so important to attend. The latest course that I attended was the Trauma FX Advanced Casualty Simulation. Trauma FX is one of the world's leading providers of Casualty Simulation Training. The knowledge gained from this course, in conjunction with my other qualifications and experience, enables me to provide the most realistic SFX.
