My name is Michelle and I’m a qualified mobile make up artist based in Southampton. I am a specialist in bridal and studio make up and have worked in the industry for over twelve years.

I set up Opulence in spring 2005 when I moved from London to the Southampton region. I focus on proms, studio work and weddings, which can range in size from just the bride to larger parties.

I started my career in London where I trained for four years at the London College of Fashion where I was given the opportunity to work at fashion week. Whilst studying, I worked for a number of prestigious make up brands such as Nars, Molton Brown and Space NK.

I progressed on to work for Estee Lauder at Stila as one of their exclusive senior make up artists in the events team. In my spare time I worked with photographers and modelling agents creating portfolios for their new faces.
