Ruby went to Solent University for three years, where she studied BA (Hons) Makeup and Hair Design. She specialises in fashion editorial makeup and hair. She also enjoys commercial, catwalk and beauty, alongside bridal and prom. However, her interests lie in fashion makeup.
She comes from an art and design background where she previously studied fine art and product design at A-Level. Ruby can therefore work on a diverse range of design briefs and can adapt looks to suit specific individuals. She takes pride in directing her full efforts into any task she undertakes and will do her best to fulfil the client’s requirements. A versatile artist, Ruby has taken on the position of creative director on many occasions and therefore knows how to lead a team and how to construct a shoot. She also works well in a team and welcomes feedback on the work she produces.
Ruby takes pride in producing outcomes to the highest of standards. She admires the work of successful makeup artists in the industry and can effectively understand and utilise their methods and techniques. Ruby is always looking for an opportunity to learn and further adapt her skills in order to improve her abilities.
Ruby's goal with all of her work is to produce makeup and hair to the highest of standards. She takes pride in the techniques she uses and puts a lot of thought into the products in her kit. She prioritises good skincare and believes this is what makes or breaks a look. Without good skin the whole image can fall apart. Ruby aims to make her models feel comfortable in the look she creates and wants to fulfil the requests of the client at all times, offering advice when she feels it could improve the outcome. When a look is complete she wants to stand back and be proud of the work she has created, and she says "there is no better feeling than receiving photos from a shoot and seeing your work in all its glory".
