My name is Leanne and I've been a makeup artist for around 12 years, but I have been in the beauty industry for over 20 years - starting out as a beauty therapist, followed by retail makeup artistry, and now a freelance makeup artist. I specialise in wedding and special occasion makeup, covering all of South Wales. In 2018 I have opened my Pucker Up HQ studio.
I studied makeup under my level 2 NVQ beauty training, trained with Boots with brands such as Urban Decay, Ruby and Millie. I also trained with the Carlton Institute, and I studied Theatrical Media Makeup at Crosskeys College. I have studied to become an eye lash extension & lash lift technician. Most recently I have gone back to my beauty roots and completed the Million Dollar Facial course.
In 2013 I made the final five shortlist for the 'Best Make Up' category at the Welsh National Wedding Awards. My work has also been featured in Wedding Ideas magazine, the Thomson Holidays Wedding brochure, and Monmouthshire County Life magazine.
