"Make-up is not about wearing a mask, its the process of turning from a caterpillar to a butterfly, being the most perfect and confident you that you can be..."

My name is Danielle Alexandra Reading and I am a freelance professional make-up artist based in Harrogate North Yorkshire. I was trained by Jemma Kidd and Ginni Bogado in Knightsbridge London, and also Pamela Clare for SFX, and since then have worked with many celebrity clients, and on advertising campaigns. I do bridal make-up as well as commercial make-up and SFX, from theatrical and television, to films, magazines, and music videos. I also teach beauty techniques to all ages, you will learn how to recreate a look you've always wanted to try but didn't dare or even just learn a few tips and tricks to spice up a cosmetic rut you may have been stuck in over the years! I have met some amazing admirable and creative people on my journey so far. Everyone has their own individual beauty, but actually feeling beautiful is a very different thing.They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I can emphasise your features and work with your colouring to help maximise your confidence so that when you look in the mirror you'll see the real you that has just been waiting to shine through.
