Hello! My name is Eloise, and I am a Hair and Makeup Artist Trainee Based in Brighton and London.

My dream of becoming a Makeup Artist started with my obsession of musicals and arts. I would constantly be in the art classes at school, making unusual sculptures, painting and being creative every minute that I could! I went and saw all the West End shows in London as a child and always fantasised about being a part of them.

Seeking to pave a direction into Film and TV Makeup, I completed My diplomas in hairdressing, beauty therapy and makeup artistry at college and then went onto do intensive training in Hair and Makeup for TV and Film at Bath Academy of Media Make-Up (BAMM) under the direction of Peter Swords King, to prepare me in all key principles of the industry.

Since completion of the course, I fortunate enough to gain the role of a Trainee Wig Technician, in which I gained so much knowledge about wig making and  Period wig dressing for 6 months on 6 different operas and 3 touring operas at Glyndebourne Opera House. I then went on to do work experience at the National Theatre in the Hair and Makeup department, in which I assisted on the Prosthetic Preparation for the new production of Pinocchio. I have also worked on Cannes Film Festival Fashion and Short Film Awards Gala as well as providing the hair and makeup for a several short films, fashion and editorial photoshoots for photographers, a small independent company called Ellie & Ellie ltd and the Central Saint Martins Degree Fashion Show. I also worked alongside a company called Nail Crew in creating nail designs for a teen nail art book published in Waterstones and various other book stores.

I am a motivated, reliable and creative team player who strives to be as helpful as I can towards others. I feel I have great artistic ability and I am able to visualise how I would like a design to be as well as following a brief and deliver both to a high standard from being the persistent perfectionist I am. I like be organised in my work and like to manage my time well by have everything ready beforehand to make any circumstance easier and to meet the demand in fast paced environment.

I have a full,clean Driving License and am willing to travel to wherever work takes me. I would love to hear from anyone who is seeking a trainee or some assistance in the industry for future projects.
