A few years ago whilst working as hair and makeup designer on a feature film, Hannah and her assistants, Melissa Bush and Maisie Palmer were affectionately referred to as the makeup mafia.
Hannah has worked as part of the vintage creative and editorial team since the inaugural vintage festival in 2010. Hannah has played an invaluable role in the event, is always diligent, organised, creative and upbeat. Above all, she is talented and gets the job done. Hannah comes recommended.WAYNE HEMINGWAY MBEDESIGNER
I have worked with Hannah on several occasions, and have to say that I would now be loathed to use anyone else. Her make up skills are first class and she also brings so much more creatively to each and every shoot. Fantastic to work with all round.MATT HENRYPHOTOGRAPHER
Hannah is a joy to work with; she's a key part of our judging team for the Warpaint Makeup Championships and a very safe pair of hands in such a busy, time-critical environment. Her teaching experience coupled with great pro skills ensures that our competitors take away helpful and constructive feedback, and grow in confidence. She's a stickler for detail - especially in hygiene and safety - and her evident love of the industry shines through in her work.EMMA RUTHERFORDDIRECTOR OF RI MEDIA
"THE MAKEUP MAFIA"
The name stuck throughout the shoot and Hannah and her girls have been using it to refer to themselves as a collective ever since!
Melissa Bush is a creative makeup artist who studied at the prestigious London College of Fashion in 2008. After successfully completing her makeup diploma at LCF, Melissa went on to Southampton Solent University between 2010- 2013 where she studied a wide range of media hair and makeup skills including body painting and wig dressing.
Maisie Palmer is a passionate London based freelance make-up artist. After gaining her advanced diploma in hair and media make-up from the London School of Beauty Therapy in 2012 she has worked on various shoots including feature/short films, web series, commercials, editorials and music videos.
Whether it’s a feature film, commercial, editorial or simply a project that requires multiple creative hands, the makeup mafia are keen to hear from you!
