Fresh Skin for A New Face

I was asked to help introduce new model Chloe Pearce, who was recently signed to Select Model Management  by doing her makeup for up to date portfolio images.

The photographer Chris Bulezuik had given me strict instructions of enhancing Chloe’s youthful glow  (believe it or not I used about 3 different highlighting primers!), and to keep her looking her age.

working on the hair was the fabulous Zara Garnett who recently opened her own salon in Brighton.


Levi’s SS16 Sample Media and Press Presentation


Last week I had the pleasure of working for Levi’s as their head make-up artist with my 2 fabulous assistants Jack Fitzpatrick and Stephanie Summer Addams. We had the joy of creating the Levis woman and man, with models from various agencies to present the designs for spring summer 16 to the press and media. I advised my assistants, to focus on creating the no makeup, makeup, keeping skin fresh and natural looking. And to keep the hair relaxed and casual. A big thank-you to Levis for such an enjoyable day.

My RocknRoll Brighton Bride

rachel-and-steve-wedding-24Not too long ago I had the pleasure of creating the makeup for local Brighton retoucher Rachel and her other half Steve. Not surprisingly the images by photographer Anna Pumer, were featured in the first issue or RocknRoll Bride Magazine!

As a brighton makeup artist and also being a acquaintance of Rachel I was absolutely delighted when she asked me to do the makeup for her wedding day.


We mainly used MAC cosmetics and the chosen lipstick was Pink Plaid. A beautiful modern matte lipstick.

The incredible photography  by the amazing Anna Pumer who captured the day perfectly.

Brighton Bridal Photo-Shoot

As a Brighton make-up artist  knowing this shoot was local and with local business’s and models I could not say no! The incredible Stephanie Marie  created the beautiful classic bridal hairstyles, it really was a dream team.

The Main products I used on the shoot were MAC Cosmetics. I have to say I highlighted all of the models cheeks with my favourite pigment vanilla, I do not know what I would do without that product. It is pretty much stapled into my kit.

Last Photo-Shoot Of 2014

One of the best things that was in 2014 was meeting Brighton based photographer Chris Bulezuik. We have regularly collaborated together and it is due to him that my portfolio has stayed up to date and of a high standard. So thank-you Chris.

Our last shoot of 2014 was with the beautiful model Chloe Reed-Forrester who funnily enough, also used to be a make-up artist and is just beginning her career as a model.

here are the results and as you can see, the results are fantastic.
