I hold a 2:1 BA (Hons) in Fashion, Theatrical and Media Hair and Makeup as well as a driving license and a car. From March 2022-August 2022 I was a main team Hair and Makeup Trainee on CBBC’s The Dumping Ground (please see Experience for details). I have recently qualified in Level 2 NVQ Hairdressing and Barbering.
After assisting a Makeup Artist for London Fashion Week for Helen Anthony, I was keen to continue my path in Editorial and E-commerce work as I thoroughly enjoyed working under high pressure to achieve the vision. I take pride in enhancing the distinctive features of each model, accentuating their beauty. When appropriate, I love to add my creative touch to compliment the brand and leave a lasting impression on the audience.
My social media platform has allowed me to focus on symmetry, balance, and precision in my makeup work, while also providing opportunities to learn from other artists on set and enrich my craft with new techniques. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, I used this time to further refine my skills which granted me success in James Charles, an internet Makeup star, recreating one of my original pieces which gave me a lot of exposure. This has lead to several sponsored collaborations with big brands. I was featured in my local newspaper for creating a "from lockdown to glam" makeup look to drive sales for The Body Shop. My work has also been noticed by Miley Cyrus.
END CLOTHING - ECOMMERCE/EDITORIAL HAIR AND MAKEUP ARTIST
I work with END Clothing on a regular basis working as a solo artist preparing the models for their shoots. This experience has helped me work under pressure whilst applying my skills to the highest standard.
MISSY EMPIRE - ECOMMERCE HAIR AND MAKEUP ARTIST
I worked with Missy Empire glamming up the model in preparation for an e-commerce shoot. This involved following a vision to fit the Missy Empire's brand identity which involves fast changes.
BARBOUR - E-COMMERCE BARBER
I was called in for this opportunity last minute due to my ability of cutting men and women's hair. The male model arrived and his hair was longer than expected. I cut his hair to match the reference image to suit the style they were going for for their e-commerce shoot.
CBBC "THE DUMPING GROUND" -MAIN TEAM HAIR AND MAKEUP TRAINEE (2022)
6 months - Michael Birtley (Makeup Designer)
The cast on The Dumping Ground are very diverse which leaves lots of room for experimentation and practise. My responsibilities include maintaining continuity through logging images and any details through printed folders as well as digital (iPad). I always turn up to set first to ensure the day runs as smooth as possible for the Department by making everybody drinks, assigning character bags according to the call sheet, collecting sides for each Artist and calculating continuity for the day. I am often assigned different actors each day to make up and style their hair which has given me a great introduction and gainful experience in Afro hair and Barbering. I’ve had many opportunities on set solo as well as within a team on this production. I was extremely lucky to assist the Makeup Designer when sculpting, running and applying a Prosthetic piece for an episode and learnt a lot in this time.
