Natalie is continually learning, developing and staying up to date with new techniques and products and regularly attends masterclasses with well known artists such as James Malloy and Stacey Marie.
Natalie has spent the last 15 years of her career specialising in bridal make up and has had her make up work and educational articles published in a number of print and online bridal magazines including, Rock n Roll Bride, Your Wedding, Brides Up North, Want That Wedding and Save The Date.
