Natalie has been tutored at both the Academy of Freelance Makeup – one of the industries’ most recognised fashion and bridal makeup academies in London and New York – as well as at the The London Hair Academy for Professional Hair Styling.
What type of beauty does she pursue through her art? The effortless, raw and unrefined kind. Even dramatic looks under her makeup brushes will hold slightly natural and ‘rough around the edges’ qualities. For Natalie, natural can still mean bold and striking as ultimately, it’s all about balance.
In 2012, Natalie relocated to London to launch her career, where she had the opportunity to work with the some of the most talented creatives and brands in the field, including London Fashion Week, NET-A-PORTER Magazine, Estée Lauder, ELLE, and Harper’s Bazaar.
Natalie has recently returned to the sunny isles of Malta, where she is continuing to do what she loves through collaborations with key brands and companies, and has co-founded The Modern Classic, a digital platform for those who love the art – not the trend – related to all things makeup, hair and fashion.
