I am a professional, freelance hair & SFX makeup artist based in Glasgow, specialising in Bridal, Editorial, TV & Film.

I am also trained in eyebrow waxing, tinting & brow lamination.  Brow lamination is taking the beauty industry by storm - thick fluffy brows which last 6 - 8 weeks.  


I am available to travel all over Scotland & throughout the UK.  


I have attended The Academy of Makeup in Glasgow, Love Hair Co in Reigate Surrey, KMD Education in Glasgow, The Scottish Beauty Expert Training Academy in Glasgow & Creative Media Skills based at Pinewood Studios London & I have been lucky enough to have been taught by industry professionals Ashley Powell, Sara Hill, Kat Stewart, Sophie Edwards, Kimberley Dewar, Jo Irving & Karen McDougall.

My aim is to provide you with a makeup experience that is second to none.  Using your personal

style, I will work with you to create an individual & inspired look to enhance your natural beauty

& confidence. I believe makeup should be applied & worn to enhance your natural beauty,

not to mask it.


My hair & makeup kit is fully cruelty free/vegan and eco friendly.  The makeup

brands I use are Tarte, Hourglass, Charlotte Tilbury, Makeup Geek, Illamasqua, Kat Von D,

Cover Fx, Kryolan, Sara Hill, Melt Cosmetics, Becca, Urban Decay, Zoeva & Colourpop.

You will find Kenra, Living Proof, Percy and Reid, IGK & Ouai products in my hair kit.

Brow lamination lifts the hairs from the root and sets them in place meaning the brows appear thicker, fluffier and always stay in place. Results last up to 8 weeks. Please note a patch test must be done 24/48 hours prior to your appointment.

"Kim was very easy to contact via email to organise makeup for my bridesmaids & despite changes being made closer to the date & being unable to go ahead with a trial beforehand due to us coming up from Lancashire for the wedding, she was still very accommodating.  On the day she made sure the bridesmaids looked beautiful and they were all very happy! Thank you for your services!"
