Tonight’s interview is with the gorgeous Sophie Battersby from Makeup By Sophie. Sophie was the very talented hands behind my wedding hair and makeup and I cannot recommend her expertise highly enough.
I got into makeup after studying art and design in sixth form college. I started doing my own makeup more, creating art on my face and going out with a million different colours on my eye's! Makeup in films and magazines inspired me, in particular sfx and fantasy makeup. After I finished sixth form I decided to go and do theatrical media makeup at college and then fashion & photographic makeup a year after.
My 3 favorite products that I can't live without are Kett Cosmetics airbrush makeup, limecrime redvelvet lipstick and illamasqua hydra veil
Not really a secret tip more of a useful makeup tip. I always do the majority of eye makeup first. It saves you holding tissue or cotton pads under your eyes to stop fallout from eyeshadow and having to re do your foundation resulting in wasting time and product.
Here is some of Sophie's amazing work:
