Hair and Makeup skills

Ru studied at The Make-Up School in Auckland, New Zealand, completing a Diploma in Film, TV, Fashion and Special Effects. She was also one of four students awarded a Stamp of Excellence and won the Most Creative Student award at the end of the full-time course. The school helped her gain the knowledge and confidence to succeed as a professional make-up artist and hair stylist. This course stresses the “hands-on” approach to learning. She was trained using Mac products and also trained in skin care and Dermalogica.

During her time at The Make-Up School and as a freelance make-up artist, I have worked within all aspects of the industry, including fashion, make-up, SPFX, bridal, events, film and TV.
