About Me

 Spex & Lipstick

I used to be a freelance makeup artist and still am, but since juggling my dental nurse studying (which I've now finished and am qualified) and working as  PA, I had to slow down on shoots as there weren't enough hours in the week to do everything. I created Spex & Lipstick so that even though I wasn't actively working in the makeup world much, I still wanted to keep my hand in as makeup and beauty are massive passions of mine.

I also plucked up the courage to create a YouTube channel which was I really enjoy and hope that my passion and personality come across to my viewers.

 My work covers all areas of the industry (fashion, theatre, film, special effects). I worked with Oscar winning makeup artist Jenny Shircore on the Stephen Poliakoff feature film ‘Glorious 39′, starring Bill Nighy and Eddie Redmayne- he came and introduced himself to me and found out my name before hand- this will forever be my dinner party story!!) .

 Editorial work includes FIASCO, GT Magazine and M is For as well as commissioned work for DeWynters and John Frieda.

Most recent work has been for the UK Tour of The Full Monty.

I was interviewed for Go Think Big on how to become a makeup artist. You can check it out here:
