Hi there!

I'm Charlie Short, a 28 year old Special Effects Makeup artist.

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!

I am a qualified Makeup Artist educated in all aspects of Makeup application from; VTCT, to BTECH Diploma to Degree level, at all times striving for distinction.
I have been trained in all areas of makeup including:

Theatrical character makeup
Cosmetic makeup for any occasion (from basic day makeup to avant garde fashion run way)
Special Effects (including creating and using prosthetics)
Face and body Painting

I am also a trained Hair Stylist, Wig and Postiche Maker. So as you can guess, I spend my life learning new and interesting skills, I'll never be done learning!

Being a freelance Makeup Artist I have had the pleasure of working with some wonderfully awesome people and have done some super fun work.

I am available for hire for several events:
Makeup classes (one on one or group sessions)
Special occasion makeup (including specialist theme weddings),
Photo shoots,
Children’s face painting parties,
Theatre makeup sessions

and a heck of a lot more! Basically if it involves makeup, pop me an email! I am currently living in Peterborough Cambridgeshire but love love LOVE to travel.

"My brushes are more than just my tools for beauty, they are my means of expressing something I am extremely passionate about."

Q: How can I request a makeup tutorial for you?
A: Your best place to recommend a makeup is on my YouTube channel itself, I may not be able to reply to every comment, but I always note down who request which makeup so I can credit accordingly in my videos :)

Q: How often do you go on Omegle? Do you announce when you do?
A: I don't usually schedule my Omegle sessions, although I try to get on once a week. I don't announce when I go on, as it might spoil the surprise and affect the reactions I get negatively.

Q: Do you supply your own makeup?
A: Absolutely! I always use my own products unless otherwise requested.

Q: What products do you use?
A: I have tried and tested most makeup products used throughout the industry and I use what I feel works the best for my clients; from cosmetic companies such as: Clinque, M.A.C Cosmetics, Illamasqua, Barry M, Star Gazer, Temptu, Ben NYE, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, L'Oreal, Urban Decay and many many more.
For the more theatrical and special effects based makeup jobs I use brands such as Kryolan, Grimas, Mehron and Snazaroo.
