Our Quick GS Question-Answers….



What makeup product could you not live without and why?

It has to be my Tom Ford bronzer - I love a bit of colour on my face even if the sun is not shining.

What inspired you to become a hair and makeup artist?

Being able to transform someone into the best version of themselves.

How many years experience do you have in the industry?

My career in Makeup and Hair began 14 years ago in the Film and TV Industry.  Friends of friends started asking me to do their hair and makeup for their Wedding day. I absolutely love spending one of the most important days of a woman’s life with them and making them look and feel the best version of themselves.

What your makeup quote of the day?

“Make-up & hair should always be about enhancing your natural beauty, rather than masking it. No rules or boundaries – just endless possibilities” 

What product is a must for your Brides?

A lipstick or Lipgloss is a must for a quick top up. 

What is your one top make up tip?

Add a highlighter on the cheek bones and brow bones - This looks amazing on camera. 

Do you have a preference for hair and makeup and why?

Makeup and Hair for any bride to be is such a personal thing, and I am honoured that a bride puts their trust in me on one of the most important days of their lives. I love makeup and hair equally, as I love seeing the final look. 

What do you like to do when you're not with your Brides???

I am a fun energetic person, I love to spend time with my boys. I have a one-year-old "Spencer" with my partner "Olly"  we love to travel and explore, spending a lot of our time in the outdoors. We are quite an active family from skiing, biking, hiking, swimming, climbing, wakeboarding, surfing and skydiving. Spencer is a baby who has to keep up!!!!  My family and friends are very special to me and any free time I have I will always spend time with them.   

Are you married?
