When Tina was a sixteen year old junior at the Max Factor salon in London’s Bond Street, she was often starstruck – amazed to find herself in the same room as all the famous film stars that came in to get made up.
What she didn’t know then, of course, was just how close to those famous faces she was going to get in the future…
Having acquired her professional qualifications on a BBC training course, she gained wide experience in TV, then on fashion shoots, and then on many of the iconic commercials in the golden age of British advertising (working freelance, so she could bring up her 2 children).
Once the children had grown, Tina was invited into the film world by Merchant Ivory – and has never looked back.
Now, she gets up-close and personal with some of the biggest stars in the business, on a regular basis – making-up Gwyneth Paltrow, Matt Damon, Leonardo Di Caprio, Toby Maguire, Meg Ryan, Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law and Brad Pitt – to name just a few.
The Revenant, The Martian, Turk and Caicos, The Counselor, Prometheus, Marley and Me, Mama Mia, Spiderman (2 & 3), Duets, The Talented Mr Ripley, Shakespeare in Love, Sliding Doors, Titanic, Hamlet, Emma.
