Professional Freelance Make Up Artist & Hair Stylist

When I started my business 8 years ago I never realised how much I would love my job. I can get lost in doing a beautiful make up or hair and time just flies. What I love most is how wearing the right hair and make up can make you feel. Feeling this way is so powerful and can give you confidence in everything you do, you dont even have to wear that much!

I have been involved in make up artistry in some form or another for over 12 years now; with a brush in my hand (hair or make up!) I love what I can do. I started out doing facepainting for children so I have always felt most comfortable working on the face (!) When I trained in fashion hair and make up, I loved how much I could change a persons look.

So this is why I am lucky enough to do what I do. Helping someone feel this way is just the best thing ever. Especially on their wedding day!

My life in Hair & Make Up

2000 – Facepainting. I began facepainting at the age of 17, learning from a friend.

2008 – Professional Make Up Course in London at the Jemma Kidd Make Up School. After doing a business course, going to Uni, travelling the world and forcing her amateur make up skills on all my friends I decided to do a professional course in London.

2008-2012 – National Artist for Jemma Kidd. Working on shoots and shows in London Fashion Week, I was part of the Jemma Kidd Pro team for 4 years, as well as travelling the country teaching masterclasses and representing the brand in Space NK stores nationwide.

2009 – Grace Benson Make Up was born. Finally putting my new found skills to the test I started my own business.

2012-Present – Freelance galore! Now concentrating on my own freelance work, Grace Benson Make Up goes from strength to strength!

I will be exhibiting at the following wedding fairs, come and see me for a free mini trial!
