Hi Frances! How’s everything?
Hey! I’m very well, how are you?
How did you first get into make-up? What first sparked your interest in it?
I first got into makeup from my love of horror / theatrical makeup. Halloween was my absolute favourite time of year, I would cram as many looks as i could into the weekend and planned my outfits and makeup well in advance.
We love that you’re very experimental with your make-up. How do you get inspired?
The fashion that I’m into can be quite theatrical and costume like at times so I often see my makeup as an extension of what I’m wearing. I also find a great deal of inspiration from films, artists and illustrations that I love so my makeup style can look quite expressive and cartoon like.
What inspired your make-up looks for our collaboration?
Some of my favourite colours to work with are reds and pinks so working with a valentines collection was great for me. When i saw the design of the pieces, I thought that the makeup that was best suited to the clothes was a simplistic heart based design that could be worn day to day with the clothes.
What would you say to other people who aspire to become a MUA?
I would probably say the best way to start off is to experiment each day with makeup and try out loads of different styles to find what area of makeup is most suited to you. Most importantly, makeup is a great way to express yourself so have fun with it and don’t be afraid to try new things.
What is your favourite piece from our Valentines day edit?
My favourite piece would have to be the multicolour heart jeans, they’re so cute!
What are you up to for the rest of the year; do you have any exciting projects coming up that we should look out for?
Im currently working on a makeup project for university but will be uploading all my personal makeup projects online and on my Instagram throughout the year. Im really excited about this as i have a ton of ideas that I want to try out. I may also be uploading some tutorials if people are interested 🙂
