Kristy started her career off as a trainee hairdresser at the age of 16 but quickly became disillusioned with salon life and wanted more so after studying Art Photography & Film studies Kristy decided to she wanted to be a make up artist.
However, growing up in family where her parents divorced when she was 8 years old, money for such a glamorous profession were limited so she had to teach herself. As a student Kristy subsidised her income by doing agency work and through hard work she was quickly offered a job with the local authority due to her kind caring nature.
It was through this that Kristy decided to take on a job as a Trainee Social worker with a local Authority. After 8 years as a social worker Kristy still had the passion for makeup and then left the career of social work and when back to her love of make up and fashion.
She then became a full time make up artist her time and her history of working as a Residential social worker stood her in good stead as she deals with clients with low self esteem and limited income struggling with emotional issues.
