Amanda Is Made Up With Marketing Help

An award winning makeup artist, who counts Sienna Miller and Sir Ian McKellen as former clients, has returned to her native North East and set up her own business after a glittering career inLondon.

Born in Seaham, Amanda joined Lancôme in 1999 after studying beauty therapy and theatrical specialist makeup at SouthTynesideCollegewhere she won several Student awards. She worked as a makeup artist in the fast paced and cutting edge environment of Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge and then as a Senior Make Up Artist in Selfridges Oxford Street before being promoted to National Makeup Artist and Trainer in 2006.

More recently, Amanda was head makeup artist for the BAFTAs for several years running, which involved preparing numerous celebrities for the red carpet, including Sienna Miller, Jessica Biel, Goldie Hawn, Juliette Binoche, Emily Watson, Pierce Brosnan, Jude Law, Sir Ian McKellen, Dame Helen Mirren and Gillian Anderson.

Speaking about her new business, Amanda said: “I love the work I do and really wanted to give the people of the North East a service that is as much for them as for A list movie stars.”

Following a recommendation, Amanda contacted Pulse Creative Marketing to discuss the best way to get her message out. She said: “Working with Pulse was very easy – we talked through my business initially and then started formulating ideas to give me a good mix of marketing and promotional ideas to hit the right target markets.”

One of the key areas was to create a website that showcased Amanda’s work in all its glory. Paul Finch, Marketing Manager at Pulse Creative Marketing said: “Working with Amanda on this project was a fantastic opportunity to build a website that is visually stunning and really shows the very high quality of Amanda’s work. It was challenging but we loved the finished article, and it’s getting fantastic comments from visitors to the site.”
