A Little About Me…
My name is Amanda Maria and I am a Makeup Artist based in London.
Having always been very creative and artistic in my youth, I was fast approaching 30 when I realised a corporate desk job really wasn’t fulfilling me anymore, so I took the plunge and enrolled onto a Foundation and Advanced Makeup Artistry course at the prestigious Academy of Freelance Makeup (AOFM) in London. The course covered several areas of makeup including Bridal, Period Makeup, Body Painting, Fashion, Editorial, Catwalk, Commercial and Avante Garde Makeup.
Since graduating in 2012 I have worked within various different areas of makeup including Bridal, Editorial, Theatrical, Film & TV and within the Music Industry as well as several live events including Nottinghill Carnival. Whilst I really enjoyed these experiences and all the fantastic people I met along the way, I now specialise in Bridal, Prom and Special Occasion makeup.
I know it can be difficult for people to get to a salon and that’s why I work on a freelance basis, covering London, Middlesex & Hertfordshire so you can have your makeup done in the comfort and convenience of your own surroundings. I also travel outside of London/UK for Bridal work/events, please contact me for further information.
My makeup kit is comprised of premium and luxury brands such as MAC, Charlotte Tilbury, Chanel, Dior, Illamasqua, Bobbi Brown, Benefit, Laura Mercier and Estee Lauder, with a mixture of a few high-street cosmetic brands in between.
I am purely a Makeup Artist; however I work with many talented Hair Stylists so please contact me if you would like further information or recommendations.
So have a look through my work, if you have any queries I can be contacted in a variety of different ways and would love to hear from you.
