all about

GLAMORAMA MAKEUP

Hiya! I am Vicky, the owner and creative mastermind (ha!) behind Glamorama Makeup! I love makeup, and have pretty much been weilding a lipstick from the day I could hold one in my pudgy little fingers. I am a Mom (yes Mom, I am also American) to a very energetic and creative boy, and wife to an extremely tall man. We love going camping, walking in the woods, and cycling when we can, although I’m not very good at that last one. I am also a fan of coffee, knitting and crochet, swimming, art, reading, music, and dark chocolate! I would like to do more yoga and meditation, I have the best of intentions, but there’s just not enough hours in the day!

 

I am a naturally chatty person, and I have been told that I tell a good story. I like to think it has a calming effect on my clients! No-one wants to sit in silence while someone is all up in their space. Being in this field, you have to be part artist and part therapist, and I really dig that balance. Looking good and feeling good go hand in hand.

 

I have been a vegetarian for over 20 years, and I am committed to using cruelty free products. I am always looking into ways to make my business more eco friendly by using less plastic and creating less waste.

 

I began Glamorama when I was on maternity leave in 2011, and left my old job as part of the Estee Lauder Makeup Team in 2014. I am super proud of how my business has grown over the years! We are now a small but perfectly formed team of hair and makeup artists, including Shereen and Sarah.I am really fortunate to have these incredible ladies on #TeamGlamorama!

 

As if being a mother and small business owner wasn’t enough, in 2017 I created The Liverpool Wedding Blog along with my friend Lucy from Lucy Hannah Photography. The Blog is a fantastic resource for couples planning their weddings in the Liverpool region, and it gives me the chance to flex my writing muscles too! It is hard work, but we love it. I am also a regular contributor as a makeup expert for Your Cheshire and Mersyside Wedding Magazine.  It’s so much fun showing my kid my picture in the magazine at ASDA!
