Established in January 2012 Pixie Dust is based in Blackpool and the Fylde Coast and will also travel.
My Name is Laura, I’m a professional Make Up Artist and have been working in the industry for the past 6 years. I love my job and enjoy working in different genres which gives me a wider understanding of all aspects of make up. This Includes Theatre, Editorial, Film and TV, Bridal and Special Occasions.
My training in make up artistry includes the industry recognised, award winning School Of Make Up Manchester. Where I gained my diploma covering all types of media make up including SFX, hair and wigs.
I am also Certified by City and Guilds in Level 2 and 3 of Make Up Artistry and Hair. As well as Level 3 Manicure and Nail Technology. Studied at Blackpool and the Fylde College where I received ‘Student Of The Year’. This has given me 2 different approaches to learning which I feel gives me a well rounded knowledge base, which I have built upon with experience.
When working as a Make Up Artist it can be rewarding to know you’ve given somebody confidence. Whether that’s helping a bride to look their best on their special day or creating a character in theatre. Every make up is very personal to each client meaning communication is key, so we can achieve something we are both happy with.
With qualifications in hair, I can offer hair styling services to compliment a make up. I also offer manicure and eye treatments (eyebrow shaping, eyelash and eyebrow tinting). Helping you feel truly pampered. See ‘Make Up Artistry’ page for a full price list.
I always use the best quality products and well known professional brands. I like to keep on trend with up and coming products so I can advise what would suit the client best.
Working with a variety of people in production teams and individuals. From directors, designers and actors to photographers and models. I enjoy having a creative outlet in my work and become fully involved with each production. I have a background in dance, drama and performance. This led me to develop a passion for theatre and the entertainment industry.
My experience over the past 6 years consists of make up, hair and wig styling for a variety of occasions including: Photoshoots, Editorial and Fashion. Weddings, Proms and Special Occasions. Also Film, TV and Theatre.
DBS checked and First Aid Trained.
