Despite having had a passion for Makeup since I was a teenager and making up many a face of friends, family and acquaintances over the years, my career started out in Property Services, working initially for the NHS and later for a local County Council. After leaving a career of 10 years in Facilities Management to have my twin daughters, making our household total 5 girls and 2 boys (something my husband is thrilled about!!), I decided now was the time to look at following my passion and making this my new Career.

I obtained Beauty Guild Accredited qualifications both in Makeup Artistry and related treatments and this is when SC Makeup Artist became established.

In the years following I have had the pleasure of working on and organising photoshoots and cat walk shows. I have been published in 11 magazines to date, been a Beauty Expert in Your West Midlands Wedding Magazines Q & A section and have worked on a number of weddings at some stunning locations, including the South of France. The past few years have been an absolute blur of fun, hard work and making new acquaintances and friends, both with clients and industry professionals alike.

Whilst I love every aspect of Makeup Artistry, my specialism is Bridal Makeup. There is nothing more beautiful than seeing a Brides face light up on her Wedding morning once she has had her makeup applied and its always a pleasure and honour to be a part of someones special day. I pride myself on not only being a Brides Makeup Artist, but also a friend and confidante from the moment they make contact, to the minute I wave them off down the aisle.

In regards to my kit, I have a extensive range of Makeup including many well known and reputable Brands such as; FACE atelier, MAC, Bobbi Brown, Charlotte Tilbury, Urban Decay and Becca. All products used are chosen for their properties in terms of longevity, lightweight wear and finish.

Please feel free to browse my website and get in touch should you have any questions, wish to discuss your requirements, make a booking or just fancy a chat. Hey, I’m a Northern lass, we love to talk!

One final note to remember; Everyone is beautiful, its my job to assist you in presenting this beauty in its best form!
