About Me

Makeup artistry and a passion for the fashion and beauty industry is in my genes and I've always loved the freedom of creativity mixed with the ability to improve upon and evolve your chosen canvas.  To me, makeup artistry is a gift to bring confidence and self-assurance to everyone (and I always go by my mantra 'the base makes the face' when applying flawlessly blended makeup to my clients). When a client books me, whoever they may be, we work together to create the best version of them and we have a great time doing it!

Eponymous
I created the Eponymous concept with my partner through our work within the creative industries as it became clear that there was a disconnect between talented independent designers creating their own beautiful products and the accessible luxury outlets needed for them to be seen by their target audience.  W.E. takes dedication and passion to grow and evolve, the bonus being it fits beautifully with the Homespa audience and ethos of being comfortable in your own skin. Creative Director collaborations/interviews on behalf of W.E. 

Collaborated with Gok Wan to synergies W.E. brands for the Glasgow Gok’s Fashion Brunch Club catwalk show. Interviewed for The Telegraph, The Guardian, The National, The Evening Times, Inside Retail, Women Enterprise Scotland, Business Advise, Press & Journal, Enterprise Nation, Extreme Creations, Small Business.
