 A bit about me – Make up Artist

Make-up artist and nutrition coach on a mission to make you feel beautiful inside and out.

The Graceful Disgraceful Make-up Experience for the Pro-age women has just launched with great success.  This is a unique session that is designed for older women and takes them on a journey from bare face to a healthy glow. With lots of chat around growing older, nutrition and skin. Make-up, chat and lots of fun, whats not to love? (details on Beauty page)

Karen originally trained in Beauty Therapy and Massage at Champneys Health Farm and worked in various Salons and Health Clubs in London learning her  trade until I she realised Make up was her passion. As part of the New Romantic club scene she was very lucky to assist the amazing  Lynne Easton who was Boy Georges make up artist.  She  worked on many Pop Videos and shows  including Culture Club, Wham and a regular at London Fashion Week. This amazing opportunity  allowed Karen to work with many musicians and designers of the time. After this apprenticeship she went on to work in my own right for fashion magazines, catwalk shows advertising and Celebrity shoots including Kate Winslett for Premier magazine and Jude Law for British Vogue to name but a few. Her eye for detail for close beauty led her to work with many hair brands and hairdressers including Trevor Sorbie Akin Konizi Errol Douglas.

Karen has travelled the world with her skill working in Hong Kong and China and her work graced the pages of the first ever China Elle magazine. She  also worked for a short spell in Sydney Australia.

With over 30 years experience Karen  now teaches others make up and have taught in many of the best schools in London including London College of Fashion and London School of Make up. She teaches a Cosmetic make up artist course for beginners at Southern School of Beauty and have recently designed a Bridal Make up artist course for them aimed at building confidence when working with Brides.

As a make up artist and tutor Karen offers her expertise to hair and beauty salons, teaching therapists to improve make up application and achieving bridal looks.

Karen has been lucky enough to direct make-up students’ photo shoots, which combined a passion of working with up and coming talent and working in a photographic studio.

A love for applying make up never ends, she also has a certificate in cosmetic airbrushing, which she offers to the many brides she works with and recently got back in the studio, working on  shoots for magazines and hair clients.

Karen is  a certified nutrition and weight management adviser with a real interest in the concept of beauty inside and out. Working with clients to help them achieve great skin and general wellness through healthy diet, exercise, beauty regime and positive outlook, which ties up beautifully with Graceful Disgraceful Make up Experience.  she work s with individuals, salons and corporate,  a volunteer for  Look good feel better – the beauty industry charity for women with cancer.

Karen takes weekly NHS referral Obesity sessions  for SHAPE UP 4 LIFE and is  a trained Health Champion for Wiltshire which is a volunteer role supporting the Health Trainers spreading health awareness to the community.

Karen made me look and feel like a star, from the make up trial to my big day. With the use of an airbrush, Karen gave me illuminated, flawless skin. She found the perfect shade of red for my lips, which stayed on no matter how many kisses I gave my husband! I can't recommend Karen highly enough, what a great start to the most perfect day! http://www.freeindex.co.uk/myfreeindex_514395-(display-reviews).htm
