She’s made the likes of Emilia Fox, Claire Goose, Donna Air, Richard Gere – even Tony Blair – look gorgeous and now she’s set her sights on the great and good of Chiswick.

Professional make up artist Kirsty, who has worked on the sets of Silent Witness, Waking The Dead and Hollyoaks to name but a few, set up in 2004 selling quality products to the fellow professionals but she fancied a change of scene which brought her to Devonshire Road.

A former Chiswick resident, Kirsty had had her eye on the site for quite some time and jumped at the chance to launch The Make-Up Shop selling the same top quality products used by the professionals.

She stocks ranges including the British based Cosmetics a la Carte – the hand blended made to measure range (who incidentally can also match discontinued lipsticks), Make Up Designory, Bare Essentials, Malin Goetz (excellent for those with skin conditions) and gift items including Stephanie Johnson.

“I’ve chosen quality products that I rate as a make up artist,” says Kirsty who has been overwhelmed but delighted with the enthusiastic reception she has received so far. "I stock ranges that are not available elsewhere in the the UK. I also intend to change the brands I offer and introduce new ones to keep us up to the minute.”

As well as selling cosmetics, The Make Up Shop also offers an extensive range of services from experienced make-up artists who have worked in TV and Film giving customers the advantage of learning all the tricks of the trade and avoid the ‘cosmetic counter’ look.

Got an exclusive party to attend, corporate do or school reunion? Your own professional make-up artist will create an Oscar worthy look for the special event! Or perhaps you would like to know how to apply your own? Then by booking a 2 hour lesson, you can learn step by step how to apply make-up correctly, discover what colours suit you and how to bring out your best features.

An inspired offering – and one that would surely put a stop to age old battles between mother and daughter - is the Kick-Start tailored for 13 - 16 year olds who want to learn how to apply make-up. At £50 it’s cheaper than arbitration and a whole lot more fun!
