We set up our dressing room at The Fashion Retail Academy to get the models ready. The makeup look was effortless glamour, with rose gold shimmery eyeshadow, smoky eyeliner and full lashes. Skin was golden and glowing with a flawless finish. Hair was styled with a soft bouncy wave and subtle volume.

Check out the behind the scenes video to see what happened!




Halloween Makeup Event for True Religion, Carnaby Street, London.

This Halloween was my busiest ever! As well as managing my own team of 20 makeup artists across London, I also took on my own clients for private parties and events. One of my main events was the True Religion window take-over I did at their store on Carnaby Street on 28th & 29th October.

We also set up a mini-makeover stand for customers to have a little something done too. From purple glittery lips, to vampire bites on the neck and dark smoky eyes!

BRITISH HAIR AWARDS 2015 - Finalist Collection: Angelo Vallillo @ Zullo & Holland

This year I worked on a hair collection with Angelo Vallillo & his team at Zullo & Holland in Nottingham. For the last two years running, Angelo has won Eastern Hairdresser of the Year, which is an amazing achievement for himself and for everyone involved in the creation of the collections - including photographer Richard Miles and the team at Zullo & Holland - (Amy Taylor, Simon Tuckwell, Shireen Zanjani, Romano Zullo, Sue Comery, Charlotte Willey, Derek Rae, Alex Leonard, Grace Bowering)

makeup artist london, fashion makeup artist london, celebrity makeup artist london, beauty makeup artist london, best makeup artist in london, top makeup artist london, roseanna velin,

Since then, both of the 2013 & 2014 collections have been published throughout print magazines, online magazines, blogs and social media websites worldwide - we made the cover of Hairdressers Journal, Hair Now, Les Nouvelles Esthetiques and Institute Magazine. We also got editorial spreads and image features in Professional Hairdresser Magazine, Fellowship Magazine, Hair Now, Estetica, Hair's How, Loop, Salon Business, Top Hair, Tribute Magazine & more.

We gained a lot of attention with our first collection in 2013 because it was so striking and different. As a creative makeup artist, I love pushing the boundaries to create something refreshing and new. In this collection, instead of clothing or jewellery, I created a black feathered body paint look which worked really well with the total look and image - adding bold & dramatic detail but keeping the focus on the hair.

Models: Roseanna Velin, Kayt Webster-Brown, India Lownds, Elizabeth Bishop, Michaela Ireland, Katy-Ruth, Ellisson.

In the 2014 collection, we wanted consistency in terms of strength of image & style but we also wanted to progress and bring this collection forward. This time, with the makeup, I decided to go for a glossy wet look finish, which you will find across a lot of my creative work. I loved how this contrasted against the dry, matte hair textures and dark background.

Models: Roseanna Velin, India Lownds, Anna Rae, Charlie Barker, Laura Kendall, Madga Jakubik.

In the 2015 collection, again we wanted our signature artistic style to shine strongly through the images. For the makeup I decided to play with graphic lines and 'painted' textures. The final images look great and are completely different to what we've done before. Here's an exclusive behind the scenes video from the photo-shoot. Enjoy!




BRITISH HAIR AWARDS 2015 Finalist Collection: Daniel Granger Hairdressing

This year I worked with Daniel Granger and his team (Chloe Hunter, Lucy King, Adam Haines, Emma Holmes, Will Lamb) in Northampton on their British Hair Awards Collection. We had a great shoot over two days with photographer Dan Thomas & assistant Jordan Leigh Russell. We also had videographer (and photographer) Mark Kidsley there capturing all of the looks in an exclusive behind the scenes video.

For the makeup look, we decided to go with a strong graphic eyeliner contrasted with nude skin and nude lips. I also added a "freckled' look to the models skin, which I think worked really well with the total look.

The collection made it into the final. I think this collection is really strong and I'm so glad to have been part of it. I'm really looking forward to seeing who wins! Here are a few screen shots from Mark's video to show some of the makeup close ups. Full photographic collection coming soon...
