I trained as a makeup artist in 2011 and soon after qualifying, I moved to London and started working as a freelancer. In the quieter months, I would sit in my bedroom and create makeup looks, posting them on my blog and Instagram. Some of the makeup looks gained particular popularity and my work was then published in global media outlets, such as Buzzfeed, Cosmopolitan and Elle.
Over the past two years, I stopped freelancing and focused on working in the online world. I have worked with a number of established brands from film to fashion to beauty, including Universal Pictures, o2, Louboutin, Simple, Amazon, Marks & Spencer, Sony Pictures, Nyx, Intel, Annie Haak, King Games, ustwo Games and Pizza Hut.
In 2016, I won Best Use of Social Media at the Beauty Blogger Awards and collectively on my social channels, I currently have a reach of over half a million. In the last year I have also become dedicated to living a cruelty-free lifestyle, first starting with food and now saying goodbye to some old makeup and beauty products that I once believed I couldn’t live without. It’s exciting to see how many new and innovative brands are entering this space and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you.
