My Latest Adventures

I am very pleased to say that the last six months have been a complete whirlwind for me! I have been very busy working on many new projects and keeping myself out of trouble!
I was lucky enough to work alongside Maverick TV productions, at the 'Clothes Show Live' , for the third year running 'National Wedding Show' at Birmingham and London , 'Vitality Show' at Earls Court 2 London and to finish it all off I now have my own beauty column in local magazine Touchbase , which is available every other month.


National Wedding Show London and Birmingham

Every Spring and Autumn the National Wedding Shows come around and I always look forward to being apart of them. I work alongside some other fabulous makeup artist's who also work for celebrity makeup artist Ariane Poole throughout the show.
There is a main Catwalk Show at this event and all of us on Arianes makeup team spend the morning making up up the models to make sure there wedding perfect all day.
Here is a sneak peak of some of the beautiful models and dresses back stage








Maverick TV - Disney's - Get The Look

For three months I was lucky enough to work alongside the talented Electra Formosa as her personal makeup artist. Electra is an up and coming star on the Disney Channel creating new key trends for girls and boys around the globe.
You can catch Electra on 'Get the Look' on the Disney Channel.







London Graduate Fashion Week

My recent big adventure was in London where I worked London Graduate Fashion Week. I have worked on numerous fashion shows before but I've have never had my own team of make up artists to teach and manage at the same time.

For LGF week I was running Stage B. I was left in control of ten students  from the London Fashion College which luckily for me where amazing and all really good make up artists.
As a head makeup artist  it was my job to create the look for each catwalk show for each individual college. I was sent a look sheet from each producer then using Maybelline makeup,who sponsored the show, I was left to create the look for each one using the look sheets as a guide line. All of the looks varied from a complete nude blanked out canvas to dark smokey eyes and bright red lips.
When the models for each show started to arrive I would take one as my test model and demonstrate the look to my team of students, so they could re create the look to help memake sure the models had makeup, hair and outfits on in time for there show. It was completely hectic but every second was amazing.


It was a great experience and one I hope to be asked to do again next year. Take a look at all the fun we had!!!!!!

Testimonial from my girls!

My week at Graduate Fashion Week was rewarding and fun! The week was long and tiring, but such a valuable experience.

The team of Make Up artists I was working with worked well together. We were constantly helping each other out, and having a laugh, which is needed to keep motivated through out the day!

This was all helped by Make Up Artist Melissa Greening, who led the team. She was a pleasure to work with, so friendly, and made us all feel at ease instantly. I know i speak for everyone when I say that she made the experience stress-free and enjoyable. She has a bubbly personality, whilst still having a professional presence.
Above all, Melissa is lovely, down to earth, and talented. I hope to work with her again one day!

Love Natalie xx
