Ello! My name is Charlie! You might know me as PinkStylist on Youtube, hi!
I'm a 29 year old special effects makeup artist that loves creating things that are weird and wonderful!
Makeup has ALWAYS been my passion; the idea that a person can become anyone or anything they want to with makeup has always fascinated me! So with every chance I get I try my best to come up with new and interesting makeups because, well, why not!
When it comes to qualification I can proudly say that I am a qualified Makeup Artist educated in all areas of Makeup application, my qualifications are: VTCT, BTECH, Diploma and Degree (a grand total of 6 years of study).
I have been trained in all areas of makeup including: theatrical character makeup, cosmetic makeup, Special Effects (including creating and using prosthetics), and face and body Painting. I am also a trained Hair Stylist and Wig and Postiche Maker. So as you can guess, I spend my life learning new and interesting skills, I'll never be done learning because it's always so fascinating!
I'm currently working as a digital creator teaching others my techniques and how to create various different effects with makeup and how to create some truly horrific characters with affordable FX makeup.
