Hi, my name is Gemma, I'm a freelance makeup artist currently studying with QC Makeup Academy for the Master Makeup Artistry course. I have been practicing myself for a number of years and have had very good feedback from those I have done makeup on, such as for parties and weddings, doing a range of styles for any occasion.

Since my very early teens I have loved makeup and have practiced since then. I love all kinds of styles, from the early 60's Audrey Hepburn style, natural wedding looks , from colourful and fancy party looks.

I have worked on various makeup counters such as Givenchy, Lancome and Elizabeth Arden, which has given me an extended range of product knowledge as well as other companies I have personally tried myself. I have learned a good amount of skin care technique too.

I have also set up a page on Facebook called Gem'n'Eyes, where I do makeup looks of any sort, share pictures and give tips and tricks on how to achieve certain looks.


I always like to make people feel comfortable so if you decide to come to my house for a makeup trial for a wedding, or to go out that night for a party, maybe just to pamper yourself or for advice on makeup, I always offer a warm and friendly atmosphere and offer teas and coffees. I am also willing to travel to your house as well after a short discussion of what the occasion is. For weddings I always suggest that a trial makeup is made some weeks or months before the day of the wedding to get the style you want perfect. I'm quite a perfectionist so I always like to make sure that the colour and style you want is exactly how you want it.

As of right now however I do only travel around the Milton Keynes area
