Make-up Artist

  • Location: Edinburgh
  • Career stage: Entry
  • Freelancer: Available

I studied make-up artistry at the Edinburgh College of Art. This is a one year lenght course (National Certificate) which covers fashion, theatre and film make-up as well. I studied bodypainting, special effects, character make-up, styling, dressing and finish hair. Before entering this course I have completed a short evening course at the College called Preparation for Make-up Artistry. 

I have done several photoshoots and student films as a SFX and Hair&Make-up Artist. Recently I am having work experience in the FilmEfex Studio where creatures, puppets, models, special make-ups and costumes are being made. 

My goal is to work on TV and film as a make-up artist.
