About me

Hi, I’m Ruth. I have been a Make-Up Artist and Hair Stylist for nearly 20 years. I have lived in various parts of the UK including London and now settled near Bath.

I trained in Make-Up Artistry from a young age at College, due to my passion for makeup and Art. I studied Theatrical Media makeup, Hair Styling, Beauty Therapy, Holistic Therapies and Fashion Design/Styling. I am also a trained Barber in male grooming.

I have built a career as an international Make-Up Artist where I have developed a strong, clientele base around the world. I have worked on Emmy Award winning shows, Feature films, Television shows, Television networks, Fashion shoots and have worked with Celebrities. I have been fortunate to travel to some exotic locations with my job, such as South America, America, the Caribbean and Europe. One of my most memorable moments was when I was star gazing in Machu Picchu and thought how lucky I was to be in such an amazing place, doing what I love the most. With my training and experience, I was invited to Florida to hold makeup seminars and workshops to share my knowledge.

With my Artistic nature, there are no limits or boundaries when it comes to my fashion photo shoots. I have made head pieces, neck pieces, false nails and customised false eyelashes.

With Make-Up Artistry, I find I am constantly adapting to new styles and trends. I enjoy learning new creative skills and I especially love a challenge.

My most enjoyable achievement is transforming women and men to make them look and feel fabulous; Whether that person is discovering or looking to express themselves through the Art of makeup. To give someone confidence and to show that they are beautiful, no matter the gender is the most satisfying and rewarding feeling. Whether it’s for a Bride, a makeover, a special occasion, or just to feel good about yourself. It’s always a pleasure to be part of someone’s journey or their special day.
