Gemma is a freelance mobile makeup artist based in South Wales who specialises in Weddings and Occasion makeup.
As a mobile artist Gemma will travel to your location of choice in order to ensure that you feel at your most relaxed. Gemma lives in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales but provides makeup services for weddings and events throughout the UK.
Gemma's makeup kit consists of a vast range of tried and tested products including NARS, Bobbi Brown, Urban Decay, Clinique, Lancome and YSL but her favoured products are MAC and Estee Lauder which create a flawless, professional finish. As an artist Gemma prides herself on creating individual looks using her creativity, experience and product knowledge to create looks which complement her customers' skin type, complexion and personality. All of Gemma's makeup is long lasting, comfortable and look flawless in photographic, artificial or natural lighting.
Gemma originally trained in Psychology and post 16 teaching and has worked as a Trainer and Development Officer at a local charity for over 10 years, but never lost her passion and enthusiasm for cosmetic makeup application and beauty. In 2010 Gemma pursued her passion for makeup by enrolling on a 1 year VTCT Cosmetic Makeup Application training course during which she learnt invaluable skills and techniques to apply professional bridal, occasion, day time and evening makeup looks.
Upon successful completion of her training and qualification Gemma quickly built up a considerable customer base and in 2012 established her own freelance makeup company providing a professional mobile makeup service throughout Wales, which she continues to balance with her employment with the Charity and her family life as a mother of two small children.
Gemma is a member of the Guild of Beauty Therapists and a proud member of the Wedding Guild of Wales which is a group of elite, hand picked wedding suppliers who have all been selected based on the exceptional customer and supplier feedback that they have received.
