Makeup Artist
West Midlands

"...My confidence has gone through the roof, helped along by hundreds of compliments about my photos following the makeup shoot!"            -A. Stephens
With a background in fine arts, and a degree in film and theatre, Lisa's passion for creative visual arts began early in life and developed into an ability to conceptualise and apply beautiful makeup. Her skills were recognised in 2004 by M.A.C. Cosmetics when she was recruited and trained on the job in Selfridges, Birmingham. During her time with the company she experienced makeup artistry from counter to catwalk.

Following some years working abroad, notably as a photographer and destination wedding film editor in Grand Cayman (British West Indies), Lisa returned to the UK and started a family. She is now a freelance makeup artist and has completed formal training with The Central School of Makeup, (Custard Factory, Birmingham). She holds a certified qualification with The International Makeup Association and works from her home studio in Stourbridge (West Midlands), as well as travelling whenever required.

Lisa offers makeup artistry that is bespoke to the individual, and always applied with finesse; designed to enhance, not hide the natural beauty of every client. Her makeup kit features high-end brands that include MAC Cosmetics, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Becca, EsteƩ Lauder, Charlotte Tilbury and Dermalogica. Lisa's background in photography gives clients the exciting opportunity to have a Canon DSLR photo shoot of their new look, complete with studio-style lighting and professionally post-produced high resolution images.

Lisa's makeup sessions are relaxed and leisurely, full of pampering, humour, not to mention an array of professional tips and tricks to make sure you leave feeling inspired as well as beautiful. Her aim is to improve self esteem and boost the confidence of all her clients no matter what age or previous makeup experience.

Lisa believes that beauty is within all of us. It begins with a smile, a sparkle in the eyes, a warm glow of confidence and finally, the perfect shade of lipstick.
