Makeup By Finola
How long have you been a makeup artist and how did you get your start in the industry?
I trained in Musical Theatre at one of the top Performing Arts colleges in London. At the weekends alongside my training, I worked for a premium cosmetic company on Oxford Street. It was then I had many customers asking me to do their makeup for their upcoming events such as weddings and parties. Since then, I have worked on some wonderful jobs including photoshoots and events.
How would you describe your signature look and what is it about your style that sets you apart from other makeup artists?
I like to bring the best out of people’s features. Whether it be gorgeous eye colour, or beautiful complexion, I like to make the makeup work for that individual.
What I love about makeup
I love how it can make someone feel so amazing. I used to suffer from severe acne and I found a way to make myself feel confident by doing my makeup so that my acne was not noticeable. I absolutely love it when clients message me to say how amazing and confident they felt when I did their makeup.
Three must-have items
Wow, this is not an easy one. I’d say Foundation, mascara, and Lipstick!
