I’m Tina and have been working as a hair and make-up artist in London since ’96, I also have various qualifications in beauty and holistic therapies although my career has mainly been in make-up artistry. I have further studied and worked with special effects make-up, face and body painting and airbrush make-up. During my career I’ve worked on music videos, backstage at shows and numerous fashion and beauty shoots. Throughout this time I had many Asian brides approach me to do their bridal hair and make-up which eventually lead me to specialising in this area. I currently work as a freelance hair and make-up artist and teach various courses privately in northwest London that are approved and accredited by The Guild.
I love creative beauty shoots, artistic hair designs, skin care (especially home-made), aromatherapy, health and plant-based nutrition. I spend a lot of my spare time reading and learning about health and nutrition and the connection between diet and disease. A nutrient dense diet not only improves your health but can also help you to maintain a healthy weight and reduce food cravings, it’s also great for improving the condition of your skin and helping to achieve stronger hair and nails. Unhealthy processed food robs your body (and skin!) of nutrients while healthy whole foods in their natural state supply the cells of your body with all the micro nutrients and antioxidants it needs for optimal function. My passion for healthy living leads me into the kitchen where I spend a lot of my time creating healthy recipes which I will be sharing in ‘my plant-based kitchen’. True beauty really does start from within!
Through this health and beauty blog I hope to share the knowledge and experiences that I have gained along with my opinions through reviews, tips, recipes and tutorials. All the products featured are what I buy for my professional kit or personal use unless otherwise stated.
