Julie

Founder & Creative Director

I have been so lucky to have had such a long career doing a job  I loved.

Meeting Pierre La Roche, Make-up Artist to the incomparable David Bowie, first sparked my interest in make-up, leading to my training in London in Fashion & Photographic make up.

I founded Changing Faces in 1985. Originally working on commercial make up for many international companies as well as on weddings. But after 34 years I retired as a working MUA finally  hanging up my Makeup brushes  in 2018 after working with thousands of Brides and on about 20,000 faces!

I am now consultant to my amazingly talented & lovely team & overseeing the admin office of what is now a sizable business.

Let me introduce you to the  next  fab Changing Faces generation of MUA’s and Hairstylists working with us  with Devon Brides & in Media
