about MANDY

I have been an active professional in the beauty industry for over thirty years. The technical and particularly the holistic side of beauty has given me invaluable experience in one of my biggest passions - the diverse and artistic field of makeup. Whether it be editorial makeup in the UK and Europe, bridal makeup, makeup tutorials or party makeup for numerous special occasions.

As a qualified professional artist, makeup to me is something you should wear that does not wear you. Your makeup should enhance the person that you are and reveal your beautiful soul. I use conventional makeup, from the amazing cosmetic houses of Mac, Chanel, Armani, Charlotte Tilbury and Bobbi Brown. These amazing makeup brands pair perfectly with my years as a qualified airbrush technician, using the outstanding Dinair products. Dinair’s longevity is outstanding, lightweight and flawless and perfect for the Algarve climate.

Trends will come and go, the science and art of makeup is constantly developing. I use this professional knowledge, products and experience in a complementary way to suit you.

MAKEUP Services



You spend all the hours of organising to make every aspect of your special day perfect for you and your loved ones. Your wedding day is one of the most exciting, stressful and intense days of your life. I’ve seen many brides in every kind of state before I start the application of their wedding makeup. I’m proud to say they are transformed from the inside out throughout the process to a beautiful, confident and relaxed bridal party.

My wedding makeup will not only last all day, but you are assured that it will be applied with care and passion to compliment your entire look. It’s  about having relaxed fun knowing that you are in totally professional hands. I will liaise with you in the run up to your day to get your skin at its optimum. On the morning of your wedding I will be there to prepare your skin, apply the look and be there as you leave for the final touch up. I will provide you with an essentials bag to see you through the day .

Your wedding to me is as individual as you are. I take pride in looking after every member of your bridal party. Their makeup needs to reflect the looks you are trying to achieve whilst being as individual as they are too.



I've been the lead makeup artist to some fantastic commercials. They are intense, creative and addictive, diverse and a touch crazy! 


Honoured to work with amazing professional colleagues and publication houses throughout the UK and Europe. I'm open to any creative expression through fashion makeup, editorial makeup and artistic.


How about a chance to learn the professional secrets of a makeup artist and getting your makeup done for a fun night or afternoon in? This is a great opportunity to learn one on one a variety of looks that you can adapt your own collection of makeup.

Mandy just want to take a second out to say the most massive thank you! You were brilliant and we all loved it. Perfect day all started by you xxx
