How Moving Makeup started…..
In 1991 Victoria Edwards decided to train as a Make-up Artist in London, after having her makeup done (badly) at a department store counter.
At the time make-up artists were generally for the rich and famous, so it was particularly difficult to find someone to do professional make-up for your wedding who also travelled to you!
Leaving her Public Servant job was hard but liberating and after saving all her pennies she managed to get into the London College of Fashion where she studied Photographic Make-up. This covered a large variety of make-up styles which included Bridal, Catwalk, Corrective & Historical techniques. She then went and trained in Special Effects & Horror techniques at Shepperton Film Studios.
Working for very little money, she managed to gain experience by assisting other established make-up artists and working in busy makeover studios. After furthering her hairdressing skills at the acclaimed Jingles Hair Academy, she decided to open her own mobile make-up business – Moving MakeUp in 1995.
Word spread and her skills were soon in demand – it wasn’t long before she had worked with hundreds of clients! She also took part in London Fashion Week and worked with many top Photographers & models.
In 2005 she moved to sunny Perth and Moving Makeup & Hair has now become one of the most popular Hair & makeup suppliers in the Rockingham area!
