Do I need to know what kind of make-up look I want?
It helps to send me photos of inspiration so I can gauge the styles you like and create a look that will suit you. It also depends on what we are shooting. For Actor's headshots, I do an industry-standard fresh and natural look. Dancers and models we usually play with different styles.
What products do you use?
I use a range of products with proven photographic performance including a beautiful range of organic and vegan makeup such as Ere Perez and Youngblood mineral makeup. If you are interested in learning how to do your own everyday or screen makeup, one on one makeup classes are also available by request.

Yes, both hair and makeup.
