LARA JAMES

I have been working in the fashion industry since the age of 18. Starting as a model, I worked and travelled extensively throughout Europe and beyond. I have appeared on catwalk shows, in TV commercials, advertising and magazine photo shoots.

My worked for well known brands: Burberry, Lisa Bruce, Clairol, French Connection, Daniel Hechter, L’oreal, Brigitte, Stern, She and Bride’s Magazine.

I quickly realised that with my extensive experience in modelling, I had gained valuable professional makeup knowledge from many of the world’s top makeup artists. As I discovered my passion for makeup, I began developing this into a skill.

I have been working as a makeup artist on fashion advertising, TV commercials and weddings for the past eight years. I specialise in creating natural, healthy and elegant looks. I really do enjoy the element of creativity involved in creating different makeup looks and getting to know my clients.

I also offer private makeup lessons which involve techniques on how to apply make up. Baring in mind that everyone is different it’s important to create a regime that works with your features, skin tone and can easily be applied. I always enjoy going through client’s makeup bags to see interesting products they have hidden away. Sometimes you may have the right product but not the right technique for application which is something I will go through with you to see what works for you.
