Read on for our Q&A with Aimee...

What made you want to become a makeup artist?

I have always loved makeup since a very young age and I always knew I wanted to work in a creative field, I love meeting new people and helping them feel confident, therefore I knew becoming a makeup artist was perfect for me!

How would you describe your signature look?

My signature look would be a soft glam, flawless, smooth and glowing skin. Soft blends around the eyes with a beautiful shimmer to make my clients eyes pop!

What is your favourite brand to work with?

I love Eldora False Eyelashes, they’re my favourite lash brand by far and are an amazing company! They often send our free gifts in there orders which is the nicest thing to receive!

Tips for professionals wanting to expand their business

 I would say create offers every now and again. Also do as many makeups as you can every week, even if it’s friends and family for free. Every time you practice you’ll get better and become more confident. Practice makes perfect!

What is the biggest lesson that you have learnt in your career so far?

Don’t get disheartened if you don’t have clients one week, it will come over time! Also don’t compare yourself to other artist, everyone is different, people sometime probably lie saying they’re fully booked so don’t worry if you aren’t! They also may have been working a lot longer time to you so it isn’t a fair comparison.

Tips on taking photographs of your work?

The main thing you need for good quality photos is lighting! Definitely invest in either a ring light or box light, it’ll be worth it! 

What is your favourite part of being a makeup artist?

I love how confident makeup can make people feel, you can really show their true beauty but enhancing certain features! Clients leaving with a big smile on their face is the best feeling 

Who inspires you in the industry?

P.Louise is very inspirational as she has built a huge business starting at very little! I learnt all about this when I trained at her academy in Manchester. It is definitely impressive! 

The best products for a perfect stay-all day base?

You need a good moisturiser, Nars Radiant Longwear Foundation, RCMA powder and Morphe setting spray
