From a very early age, my mother’s makeup bag was a constant source of fascination for me. In particular with lipsticks, and to this day I don’t feel fully dressed without it.
My first Saturday job was at a hair salon, although the academic path was a route I ended up following. After graduating with a Business and Marketing degree, I climbed the corporate ladder for a number of years. However I wasn’t fulfilled with the big job in London, so a year off allowed me to study both makeup and hairdressing, gaining formal qualifications with industry bodies in both. It would take me another 10 years of working part time building my beauty business alongside my corporate career before I could finally call it my full time profession. I have worked with hundreds of brides over the years, and I love each wedding as if it were the first.

What they say
I first met Adele TWO days before our wedding day! My previous makeup artist had to cancel last minute and Adele very kindly moved things around so she could step in and save the day! Adele did an amazing job on my makeup – I asked for a natural look and she got the perfect mix of natural but with a touch of a little extra glam. I can absolutely recommend Adele to anyone looking for a brilliant makeup artist!
