Lorna Harvey-Oates (Makeup Artist)
Lorna has been working professionally as a freelance makeup artist for 2 years. Her passion started from a young age, which began as just a hobby, and now she feels blessed to call it her career.
When completing her makeup qualifications, Lorna was exposed to some great opportunities including being head makeup artist at London and Manchester Fashion week.
She has gained much experience within 2 years whilst freelancing and created varied looks on all faces of all ages and races. She believes that this has given her the ability to be able to cater to each individual rather than a “one look suits all!”

Her style consists of natural and modern, elegant makeup to flawless and detailed evening makeup/ editorial.
