For the last fifteen years Gina has been working in film, television, fashion and beauty as a Makeup & Hair Artist and Designer. Her work has been featured in: Vogue Online UK, InStyle, Style Magazine for The Mail on Sunday (Gillian Anderson), DJ Mag (David Guetta), Componere, Vintage Life, Health & Beauty and The Herald Magazine (Joanna Vanderham).
Gina often works in the world of television commercials, frequently running a team of artists for campaigns including: Pepsi, Sky Sports, BT, Microsoft, Dyson, Natwest, Compare The Market, Vodafone, Bombay Sapphire, Sensodyne, Coors Light, Miller Beer and Science in Sport.
Her experience in film has led her to Design for numerous feature films and docu-dramas featured on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Sky, BBC, Discovery ID and has designed pilot shows for CBBC in the UK and the TLC network in America. Work includes, ‘The Tinder Swindler’, ‘Damian Lewis: Spy Wars’, ‘Jungle’, ’And Then I was French’ (nominated for Best Thriller at the National Film Awards 2018), ‘The Comedian’s Guide to Survival’ and ‘For Love or Money’. Cast she has worked with include: Damian Lewis, Letitia Wright, John Cleese, Gillian Anderson, David Guetta, Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal, Samantha Barks, Giggs, P. Money, Adam Deacon, to name but a mere few.
Despite working a lot in film and television, Gina has also kept working in the fashion industry and on music videos. She says,
‘More often than not, film makeup can be very natural and sometimes barely anything at all. As much as I adore being on set and in a makeup trailer, I love being super creative with my work. Experimenting with colour and texture really excites me which is why I still like working in fashion.’
Gina holds a BA Hons degree in Fashion and Textiles Design which still stands as a majorly useful tool in her work today- colour mixing, colour matching and creating texture.
As an all-round artist, Gina is very much used to working on all different skin tones and textures. In her early makeup days she worked as a UK Trainer for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, travelling up and down the country, training teams on how to foundation match to a skin tone and how to work with varying skin textures to create flawless looks. She was also a skincare ambassador and has extensive skincare knowledge which is vital as different skins work so differently with different products.
Gina is an advocate for appreciating life; she is so grateful to be constantly working in an industry that she loves. It is this love and passion for what she does that pushes her to go above and beyond, giving 100% on every project that she works on.
