How can Paul help you?

How we present ourselves is an important factor on how people react and engage with us. We choose who we are and how we would like the world to see us. Makeup can be our mask to hide behind, a personal creative expression or just a tool to make us feel and look better. Whether it is a day to day look, a party time persona or a professional / business style of makeup Paul can help you find a style which expresses you and how you feel.

Having a special occasion and want to look your absolute best? Makeup can help you achieve the confidence and self esteem to be the light in the room. Paul will design a bespoke look just for you and your event.

Paul trained, privately, with one of the makeup teachers from Cassie Lomas Makeup Academy in Manchester for 12 months before starting to paint faces professionally. Paul’s experience spans over five years and includes people of all ages and gender expression. He has had his artistry published in several national and international magazines.

His makeup kit consists of brands such as Charlotte Tilbury, MAC, NYX, Urban Decay and Illamasqua. Paul is also fully insured to practice.

From my perspective, I feel in the time since my day with Paul my life has changed for the better, I have developed a real motivation to improve the way I look through the techniques and advice Paul has given me, I feel more confident about embracing my feminine persona, I also feel for the first time that I am beautiful and not a mismatched ugly freak which has caused me much personal anguish, stress, shame and denial over the years.  Paul has been the impetus for this change.

I met Paul with nervous anticipation, that went as soon as he opened the door and I was led to his studio, what a beautiful location. Paul very quickly discussed what I was looking for and started his craftsmanship explained what he was doing and why with the makeup he was so exacting, nothing was too much trouble. I was left to get dressed in my first of many changes. Paul advised with some of the clothes that would photograph well.

It was a beautiful day so relaxing I wore some of my new dress’s that was fun to see them in print. Paul is not only a gifted make up artist but a gifted photographer.
