Production Safety Passport

A recent graduate from the renowned Christine Blundell Makeup Academy's 4 month intensive hair and makeup course for film, TV & theatre.

Since graduating I have worked on numerous short films as key makeup and hair artist and larger productions as a makeup trainee such as Aladdin (2019) and Hobbs & Shaw. Lucky enough to be involved in a variety of fashion and editorial shoots as makeup assistant and artists including The Bodyshop Spring 2019 campagin and Fashion Fuckery x Fendi streetwear editorial. I also work with an agency in Chanel beauty boutique stores.

Always had a love of art and deisgn, I originally trained to be an interior designer which I still maintain a strong passion for.

I am a extremely self-motivated and passionate person who is approachable and enjoys working on projects as part of a team.  I am confident in my skills but take direction very well and always keen to learn.

I'm hoping to gain invaluable experience on sets and meet leading professionals in this field.
