Skincare and makeup has always been a huge part of my life. My fascination with it began with my Mum and her beauty routine, along with her womens magazines in the 1980’s. As a teenager my love for skincare and makeup grew, as did my acne, and I spent most of my time discovering ways to heal or cover my skin. I’ve always loved researching and expanding my knowledge and skills, and because of my own experiences, this motivates me to help others. I have an enormous amount of empathy and experience in dealing with skin issues and really do understand how it feels to manage troublesome skin. Relaxation and taking time for yourself is also a big part of what I offer. Its not just about how you want to look, its how you want to feel too. My services are all about investing in yourself and you will feel truly valued after spending time with me.
I believe in great skincare, natural makeup and self care
Even before my formal training, I loved doing makeup for friends and family or talking about skincare, it’s just part of who I am, I gained an ITEC Diploma in Fashion, Media and Theatrical Make up from West Thames College and was hugely fortunate to be trained by award winning tutor Julia Towend (JT Makeup) and BAFTA award winner Sheelagh Wells. I’m an alumna of the exclusive Val Garland School of Makeup – fashion and creative makeup led training headed up by the legendary Val.
I’m also a qualified level 3 beauty and massage therapist, certified by NVQ, City & Guilds and VTCT. I’ve trained and worked with Elemis, Caudalie, Ren, Phytomer, Bare Minerals and Neals Yard Remedies Organic Skincare.

I’m originally from Buckinghamshire and I now live on the North Cornish coast with my impulsive, adventurous husband and our gorgeous golden retriever. I’m calm, easy going, very down to earth and love a good giggle. I’m happiest with a cup of tea in my hand, soaking up a bit of history and trying my hardest to channel Audrey Hepburns style, so if I sound like your cup of tea, contact me.
