How did you become a tutor at SRA?

After many years in the industry with a passion for Education and inspiring others it seemed like a natural progression for me to teach. I got in touch with SRA, met the the team and immediately felt at home.

What excites you most about your work?

I love seeing students push themselves and surprise themselves with talents they didn't even know they had. I get very excited about the mistakes that lead to breakthroughs.

What kind of work have you done in the past?

I have a background of 12 years in face painting & body painting plus 10 years in cosmetic retail for various brands such as Bobbi Brown, Mecca Cosmetica and Chanel. I also run my own freelance business specializing in Bridal, Glamour and Special Occasion makeup.

What is your signature makeup look?

I would have to say Bronze smokey eyes, fresh skin and groomed brows with a soft lip. This look is amazing on almost everybody and is always my 'go to'.

What is your top makeup tip?

You can always add more but it is harder to take off! Start with a light hand and layer as you want to add strength. And never forget that it comes off - there are no failures, only lessons!

What’s the one problem you are best at solving for your students?

Skin is a huge passion of mine and something I have a great understanding of: how to create the right base; what can be used to change textures; etc.

What are you passionate about personally?

I am passionate about people, connecting with people and animals. I believe if you can be anything in life be kind. And you only get one chance to make a first impression.

Where can we find you when you’re not working?

Whenever I'm not doing makeup I am hanging with my man and my 'fur family' of four (three dogs and one kitty - my loves!).
