Please tell us about yourself –
- Im living my dream job. I initially did an Art Degree hoping to be a teacher but thankfully Make up became a ‘real job’ and being self employed fitted around my family life a lot easier. I love weddings, every one is different and so is every bride and wedding party. I like to think I can read my clients quite well and normally understand what they want, but, hey if I don’t.. it’s make up! We’ll wipe it off and start again! For me, knowing you love your make up is more important than using an on trend colour or getting ‘likes’.
How long you been in business?
What made you want to set up your business?
I was always being asked to do friends makeups and then friends of friends and decided to do a course and it went from there!
What’s the best part of your job?
When everyone’s wedding make up is done and they are all in their dresses and I’m packing up and see it all come together!
What’s the worst part of your job?
Getting lost trying to find a venue!

Best piece of advice to offer to those getting married-

Anyone you particularly admire in the industry?
Wow so many amazing make up artists and wedding specialists. Norfolk has so many wonderful wedding suppliers we are so lucky! And I have to say I Love The Bottom Drawer Brides dresses!
Best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
I remember reading Bobbi Browns book and she said the best students she had were the ones that kept on learning, years later, and weren’t arrogant enough to think they knew it all. I try to keep up to date and continue to learn from others as much as I can.
